These Reunion notices will now be given in this period, together with the various general notices connected with Government and other Public Services, such as Postal Arrangements, Civil Service examinations' and Regulations which are of concern to the general public.

: The Ceremony of the Keys

Carried out by the Chief Warder and Yeoman Porter in conjunction with the 3rd Bn. Coldstream Guards (By kind permission of Lieut.-Colonel H.C. LLOYD, D.S.O., M.C.)
Relayed from The Tower of London

The Ceremony opens with the Chief Warder meeting his escort at the Bloody Tower. The Chief Warder and escort then proceed to the Visitors' Entrance gate on Tower Hill, the sentries en route presenting arms. The Visitors' Entrance gate is locked, and they then return through the Middle and Byward Tower, locking each in turn. On reaching the Bloody Tower, they are challenged, and then proceed to the Main Guard. The Guard and escort present arms and the Chief Warder, raising his hat, calls out, 'God preserve King George.' The drums and fifes play 'God Save the King,' ten o'clock sounds, from the Tower clock, and the relay finishes with the sounding of the Last Post.

: The Wireless Military Band

(Continued)
A Programme of Military Marches
Arranged by WALTER WOOD
IT has always been a subject of debato among musicians-like the problem of the hen and the ogg-whether marching tunes were first suggested by the rhythmic tramp of many feet, or whether bodies of men learned to march in step together by having rhythmic music sung or played. In any case, march music is probably almost as old as mankind himself-at any rate, as old as warfare, which is nearly" the same thing.
But the strange thing is that the oldest march music of which wo have any trace now is comparatively modern, no older than 'the seventeenth century. In the older European wars the march music of each different nation had an even more distinct character than now, and in Tudor and Stuart days there was probably only one marching tune for all the British armies.
Many of the earliest marchos were founded on folk songs and were no doubt sung by the troops when no marching band was avail- able, or even along with the band when it was. This evening's programme includes several examples of march tunes which were originally songs, as well as others which are, from a strictly musical point of view, not much more than a stirring and rhythmic martial noise.

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.
