: Heritage: 1: HM The Queen holds an Investiture

Pageantry and ceremonial provide a living link with our nation's past. Robert Hardy visits and explains some of Britain's most colourful ceremonies.

An Investiture is a ceremony which is uniquely the monarch's own - only when the reigning monarch personally nominates her representative can anyone else conduct an investiture. It is also The Queen's own prerogative to decide where the ceremony will take place and how many of her subjects she will honour.
Outside broadcast cameras were admitted to the State Ballroom, Buckingham Palace, for the first time to witness this event.
(Repeated: Friday, 9.0 pm. 'Just like talking to my own mother': pages 6-7. The Queen visits the BBC: Wednesday at 11.55 am, BBC2)

: Full House

An entertainment for Saturday, presenting a live mixture of music, plays, poetry, prose, comedy, films, the visual arts - and a few surprises.
Introduced by Joe Melia with a little help from Henry Woolf, Jane Wood, Dave Hill
and from the studio audience.
Among the main events are:

9.15* Gladys Knight and the Pips
From Atlanta, Georgia, one of Tamla Motown's most successful recording groups - responsible for hit singles like "Heard it Through the Grapevine" and "Take Me in Your Arms and Love Me". Tonight this group - who have sung together since their schooldays - make one of their rare appearances on British television.

The Fine Art of Goofing Off
From station KQED, San Francisco, some more ingenious cartoon variations on the theme of "Goofing Off" or "Don't do something, just stand there". This week's montage will include the "Big Audience Participation Show", "International Leisure Aptitude Tests", and "How To Make a Trombone".

10.0* The Millenarian
by E.A. Whitehead
with Tim Preece as The Tutor
David Troughton as Anthony
The last of three plays, written for "Full House", which explore the relationships of a student with his teachers - in tonight's play, with his Cambridge tutor.

Ram Narayan
plays an evening raga on the sarangi, an instrument rarely heard outside India (its nearest western equivalent if the cello). Ram Narayan is accompanied on the tabla by Suresh Talwalkar.

10.45* Vernon Scannell
Poet and novelist, winner of the Heinemann Award for his book of poems "Masks of Love" in 1961. He's been a professional boxer and, during the war, he served with the Gordon Highlanders - an experience reflected in his poetry.

Eccentrica
A collection of adult toys.
Also included: sketches by Adrian Mitchell ... and whatever else turns up.

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.
