: The British Empire: Echoes of Britannia's Rule: 1: Oh! the Jubilee!

An Imperial story in 13 parts.
The Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria was the high noon of the British Empire. On 22 June 1897, the elderly Queen gave thanks to God for her reign of 60 years. Her British subjects joined in a festival of celebration and self-congratulation.
The British Empire in Jubilee Year was the largest Empire the world had known. It was 91 times the area of the mother country, a quarter of the earth's surface.
In their 'jubilation,' the British compared themselves to Imperial Rome, and assumed that God was on their side. As they watched the great Jubilee military procession through London, they cheered the 'Soldiers of the Queen' who had fought 70 colonial wars during the 60 years Victoria had been on the throne.
Narrated by Robert Hardy with Dame Gladys Cooper, Andre Morell, Penelope Lee.
Appearing: Peter Reeves, Harry Landis, Gaye Brown, Tony Newlands and Members of The Auckland Grand Operatic Society, Household Cavalry, Royal Horse Artillery,
Royal Navy, Scots Guards, Band of The Welsh Guards.

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.
