The trumpeters of the Blues will march into the centre of the hall and sound a fanfare, which will be echoed from the top balcony by the trumpeter of the Life Guards.


The hall is dimmed, and from the distance sounds are heard of a band approaching and of troops singing on the march. Battalions march up through the hall as to the front line. Accompanied by the bands, the audience will sing the following war songs :—
Are We Downhearted?
Take Me Back to Dear Old Blighty
Pack Up Your Troubles
Keep the Home Fires Burning
The Long, Long Trail Tipperary.
In an interval in the singing of the war songs a company of the London Scottish with their pipers march through the hall. On the last notes of ' Tipperary ' and as the end of the column disappears, the Massed Bands of the Brigade of Guards play ' Land of Hope and Glory,' and all join in the song.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
