: CELEBRATION IN LONDON OF THE BIRTHDAY OF HIS MAJESTY THE KING TROOPING THE COLOUR

on the Horse Guards Parade, including a Commentary by Major J. B. S. BOURNE-MAY (late Coldstream
Guards)
The Ceremony opens with the arrival of the Royal Procession and the Royal
Salute
H.M. The King inspects the troops, after which the massed bands and drums of the Brigade of Guards play a slow march, countermarch, halt, and play a quick march
A Drummer beats the Drummers' Call, .and the escort marches up to the Colour, the bands and drums playing the British Grenadiers. The Serjeant-Major receives the Colour and hands it to the Ensign for the Colour. The escort salutes the Colour by presenting arms, the bands and drums playing God Save The King. Colour and escort march down the line of Guards, and the whole Parade marches past H.M. The King in slow time, and again in quick time, and finally forms up in line and gives the Royal Salute
The Household Cavalry marches off. H.M. The King places himself at the head of the King's Guard and the Guards march off to Buckingham Palace, headed by the Massed Bands, Drums and Pipes
Relayed from the Horse Guards,
Whitehall
THE FOOT GUARDS who perform the ceremony of ' Trooping the Colour ' consist of five regiments as famous for their gallantry in war as for their discipline and drill.
The Grenadier Guards represent a regiment which served with the exited princes in the Spanish Army, returned at the Restoration in 1660, and received their title in 1815 for their services at Waterloo ; the Coldstream, their title recognised in 1670, were part of the army with which General Monk restored the monarchy, and were called Cold-streamers because they crossed the Tweed into England at the village of Coldstream ; the Scots Guards were raised and maintained in Scotland after the Restoration, marched to London in 1686 and 1688, and were brought on to the English establishment in 1707 ; the Irish Guards were formed in 1902, after the South African War; the Welsh Guards in 1915, in the Great War.
Though all five regiments wear scarlet and black bearskins, there are certain differences to distinguish them, such as the number of buttons worn on the jackets. But there is one easy way to tell at a distance which regiment is which. The Grenadiers wear a small white plume in their bearskins ; - the Coldstream a red plume; the Scots Guards no plume at all ; the Irish
Guards a blue-green one; and the Welsh Guards a green and white one.

'The Zoo MAN'
' The Gallipot', a a story by Tony Galloway , read by MAC the zoo MAN, who has won such a corner in young hearts that you placed him top of the last voting list, has an infinite number of stories to tell about animals. He has had so many through his hands; nursed them when they were ill ; learnt their likes and dislikes; and found in all of them lovable qualities. He thinks that Bush Babies, which are small creatures related to Lemurs—animals with long squirrel-like tails, bright eyes, and fox-shaped heads -make the, most charming of pets if they can be obtained when quite young.
One day a friend called at the Zoo and told him he had brought from West Africa a very small Bush Baby which his wife had reared from a bottle since it was a few hours old, and he produced from his pocket a tiny animal, a baby of the smallest kind of Bush Baby , which the books call ' Demidoff's Galago '. He said it was necessary still to feed it with milk from a fountain pen-filler, and that it needed a lot of attention. So the Zoo Man took it home and proceeded to feed it according to his directions. It was one of the nicest pets he ever had and it went by the name of ' Ogo Pogo

FINLAND is one of the most highly cultured nations in the world and despite the fact that her population is only about three million, she has achieved much in art, science, and sociology-more, relatively speaking, than any other nation of far bigger resources.
Music plays an important part in the artistic activities of the Finn. At the capital, Helsingfors, there is the Finnish National Orchestra, which is a developmcnt of the Helsingfors Symphony Orchestra founded in 1882 by Robert Kajanus , the conductor who has done so much to make Sibelius's music well known.
One of its main objects has been to encourage the work of Finnish composers, and in 1900 Kajanus took the Finnish National Orchestra on a tour through Scandinavia, Germany, Holland, Belgium, finishing up in Paris. In 1913-14 Georg Schneevoigr , who after the death of Kajanus two years ago became conductor of the Finnish National Orchestra, also went on a tour with the Helsingfors Symphony Orchestra to Stockholm and St. Petersburg. Both these tours, as in the case of the present one, were organised for the purpose of propaganda on behalf of Finnish music. Foreign audiences have all been unanimous in acclaiming the excellence of the ensemble and the fine spirit of the playing of the Finnish visitors.

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.
