: Royal Heritage: 9: Edward VII and the House of Windsor

The Story of Britain's Royal Builders and Collectors in nine films Told by Huw Wheldon

Edward VII was the first British monarch to travel widely overseas, a custom which has been extended in modern times with the State visits of our present Queen in the Royal Yacht Britannia. Britannia is the latest in the line of Royal Palaces.
In the 1860s Edward VII, then Prince of Wales, acquired Sandringham in Norfolk as a country retreat and it has remained a favourite home for later members of the Royal Family. His successor, George V, opened up Holyrood House for State visits to Edinburgh, and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother has continued the link with Scotland by renovating the Castle of Mey on the coast of Caithness, the most northerly castle in Britain. In this final programme Sir Huw Wheldon looks at some of the beautiful and surprising modern acquisitions to the Royal Collection.

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.
