: '...and The Queen Passed By '

A lot goes into a royal tour that the Queen doesn't see.
On the eve of her next tour, this impressionistic documentary presents an unusual sideways glance at the Queen's recent visit to Jamaica, the United States and Canada. It reveals sights and sounds that would normally go unrecorded. The Jamaican Prime Minister's six-year-old son, Michael Caine 's beautiful wife, a fashionable Hollywood sculptress, a fervent member of the Monarchist League and a band of Kwakiutl Indians are among the rich supporting cast. There are problems of etiquette, menus, rain and how to feminise a Presidential Suite.
Over the air come music, local reports, home-spun poetry, hamburger and hotel commercials, all providing an unsolicited and lively accompaniment.

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.
