: Edinburgh Military Tattoo

Highlights from the floodlit esplanade of Edinburgh Castle, as over 800 performers, 20 motorcycles and 12 horses take part. This year's Tattoo celebrates the 200th anniversary of the Gordon Highlanders in a display of pageantry, action and music portraying moments from the famous regiment's history.
Sadly the bicentenary marks their last anniversary. Later this year they will become part of a new regiment to be called The Highlanders. Over musicians will display their skills, including the Massed Band of the Royal Air Force, the newly-formed Highland
Band, the Band of the Dragoon Guards, Australia's Rats of Tobruk Memorial Pipes and Drums, and the Delta Police Pipe Band from Canada. High speed skill and courage will be added by the Flying Gunners - the Motor Cycle Display Team of the Royal Artillery. In a sensational finale, the Massed Bands are joined by the Kevock Choir and the rest of the cast to bid Farewell to the Gordons.
The show concludes with the evocative sound of the lone piper, and the performers march off to the stirring strains of The Black Bear which traditionally signals the end of a Scottish regiment's working day. Commentary by Tom Fleming. Director/ProducerSteveSmith

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.
