Pageantry and ceremonial provide a living link with our nation's past. Robert Hardy visits and explains the background to some of Britain's most colourful ceremonies.
In 1824 John Nash redesigned the stables and coach houses of Buckingham Palace to become the Royal Mews. Today in the busy yet village atmosphere of the Mews are stabled the famous 'Windsor Greys' and Cleveland Bay horses, alongside pageantry's romantic centrepieces, the magnificent royal coaches-the Scottish State Coach, the Speaker's Coach, the Glass Coach and the magnificent Gold State Coach.

In 1972 London Transport had a surplus of over Â£2-million. But the buses and tubes are supported by over Â£30-million of Government and Greater London Council grants. To remain in surplus and improve their financial position, London Transport must persuade more motorists to leave their cars and join the six-and-a-half million people who travel into London every day by London Transport. The network is world-famous and stronger economically than it has ever been. What must be done to keep it that way?
