Her Majesty The Queen takes the salute on Horse Guards Parade, London, to mark the occasion of her official birthday.
Her Majesty is accompanied by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, Colonel, Grenadier Guards; HRH The Prince of Wales, Colonel, Welsh Guards; and HRH The Duke of Kent, Colonel, Scots Guards

The parade is the tribute by the Household Division to their Sovereign and Colonel-in-Chief, and is the most complex and spectacular military event of the year. The Queen's Colour of the 1st Battalion, Irish Guards is being trooped.
The parade, by tradition, is in five parts:
The Inspection of the Line - The six Guards and Sovereign's Escort of the Household Cavalry are inspected by The Queen.
The Troop by the Massed Bands, Corps of Drums and Pipes and Drums of the Household Division.
Trooping The Colour through the ranks.
The March Past by the Guards Division in slow and quick time.
The Rank Past by the Household Cavalry at the walk and at the trot.

Music played by the Massed Mounted Bands of the Household Cavalry and the Massed Bands of the Guards Division

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.
