: Commonwealth Parliamentary Association Luncheon to H.M. The Queen

See top of page
The Coronation Banquet in Westminster Hall was for long an essential feature of every Coronation. It was dropped when Queon Victoria was crowned, and first reappeared in this new form in 1937, when King George VI lumdhed with a distinguished and representative group of Commonwealth legislators.
Some 750 members of the different branches of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association will be present at today's luncheon, with at least one representative from nearly every branch. The occasion is unique in that never before has the Monarch met so many legislators from so many countries of the Commonwealth.
The Queen, after arrival, will have presented to her her Prime Ministers, Presiding Officers of Upper Houses and Speakers of Lower Houses of the fully self-governing countries of the Commonwealth.
She will sit in a special chair in the centre of the High Table, on the very spot on which King Charles I stood on a very different occasion, that of his trial.

: Markets in the Caribbean

by Bruce Ball
Earlier this month the Board of Trade published 'Markets in the Caribbean,' a report of the recently returned U.K. Trade Mission to Venezuela, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Cuba, and Mexico. The mission spent thirty-six days in the five countries, travelling twenty thousand miles by air, and was impressed by the opportunities for the export of heavy engineering goods. Mr. Bruce Bail, a Kilmarnock engineer and a member of the mission, speaks from experience of the openings for British trade.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
