: Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance

Raymond Baxter describes the scene in the Royal Albert Hall , London as members of the Royal British Legion assemble for their annual Festival of Remembrance. The State
Trumpeters herald the arrival of HM the Queen, HRH the Duke of Edinburgh, HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother and other members of the Royal Family.
The Massed Bands of the Guards Division play as representatives of the Royal
British Legion, the Royal Navy, the Army, the Royal Air Force, the Civilian Services, and the Chelsea Pensioners proudly muster with their standards on the stage of the hall, and there are contributions from many branches of the armed services.
Conducting the service is the Rt Rev Michael Mann , assisted by the Rev Dr William Davies and the Rev Anthony Smith. It culminates with a moment's silence as thousands of poppy petals fall in memory of the lives that were lost in combat over the years.
The festival is under the direction of Lt Col PC E
Creasy, produced by Bob Reader and narrated by Richard Baker.

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.

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.
