: Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance

Since 1921 the British
Legion, granted a royal charter in 1925, has represented all British ex-servicemen regardless of rank. Its annual Poppy Appeal, raising income for the benefit of members in need, is a focus of the Legion's activities, and reaches its climax at the Festival of Remembrance, when thousands of poppy petals fall from the roof of the Royal Albert Hall in silent memory of those who have lost their lives in combat over the years.
Raymond Baxter describes the scene at this year's service, attended by Her Majesty the Queen, HRH the Duke of Edinburgh, HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother and other representatives of the Royal
Family together with members of the Royal British Legion. The service is conducted by the Rt
Rev Michael Mann and narrated by Richard Baker
Festival producer Bob Reader
Television presentation Neil Eccles
As coverage of the festival
Is live, later programmes may be delayed.

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.
