: Honour Royal

The Installation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother as Lord Warden and Admiral of the Cinque Ports at Dover
Today is the Queen Mother's 79th birthday. Last Wednesday she became the first Lady and first member of the Royal Family to be installed in the Office of Lord Warden and Admiral of the Cinque Ports.
The Cinque Ports of Kent and Sussex existed before the Norman Conquest. In return for the privilege of being exempt from the taxes and tolls paid by other towns, the Cinque Ports were required to provide ships and crews for the defence of the realm.
The presentation of the Keys of Dover Castle, the Installation Ceremony at the Grand Court of Shepway, and a display by the Red Arrows over the Royal Yacht Britannia, moored under the White Cliffs in Dover Harbour, combined ancient and modem in a day of colour and spectacle in honour of Her Majesty.

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.
