: Band of H.M. COLDSTREAM GUARDS

Conducted by Captain J. Causley
Windram, Director of Music, Coldstream Guards
Any who listened to ' Monday Night at Eight' on April 21 will now be inclined to look upon Captain Windram as something of an old friend as well as something of a personality. In that broadcast, in which he was interviewed by ' Quiz ', he told how he was only the tenth musical director of the Coldstream Guards Band since its formation in 1783, when it consisted of twelve musicians imported from Hanover. The band now numbers over sixty, including string and dance-band combinations.
Captain Windram also reminded listeners of the pre-war visits of the Band to Paris-and to Vichy ! — as well as of the great impression they made at the World's Fair in New York in 1939.

The script devised and written by Harry Alan Towers
Produced by Tom Ronald
This new series will again introduce Addie Seamon 's crazy boy-friend Wilbur, who always has a date, but never keeps it. And thereby hangs a tale. Rupert and Elsie will be bringing along Hilarius, the only parrot in the world with a sense of humour. He always sees the point of Rupert's gags when they are four minutes old! Once again the gang will be welcoming a whole gallery of famous visitors, and one of these Wednesday nights Richard ' Stinker' Murdoch has promised to come along. In fact, were it possible, 'Quiet, Please !' is likely to be better than ever.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
