: Nobody Minded the Rain....

Impressions of Coronation Day
Where were you on 2 June 1953? Perhaps you were one of the 20 million who watched the day's events on television; perhaps you were one of the hundreds of thousands who braved the cold and rain to cheer the Queen through the streets of London. Possibly you were one of the 7,000 present in Westminster Abbey for the Service, the most glittering ceremony that our tradition provides. This programme tells the story of Coronation Day and the preparations for it through the reminiscences of people who were there, including Lord Ramsey - then Bishop of Durham, Lord Eccles - then Minister of Works, Lady Rayne - one of the Queen's Maids of Honour, together with the many citizens who, for one reason or another, have good cause to remember the day, like the crewmen of the Lowestoft lifeboat who were among the few that missed the Coronation celebrations.

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.
