: Presentation of Colours by His Majesty the King

to the 1st and 3rd Bns. Grenadier Guards, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Bns. Coldstream Guards and 2nd Bn. Scots Guards
A description of the Ceremony by Major J. B. S. Bourne-May (Late Coldstream Guards)
Broadcast from Hyde Park
This morning listeners will be able to visualise a ceremonial parade as splendid as Trooping the Colour which was broadcast the other week. Every fifteen years new Colours are presented to certain battalions of the Brigade of Guards by his Majesty the King. The parade, under the command of the Major-General commanding Brigade cf Guards, will form up in Hyde Park, and the band of each regiment and the drums of each battalion will be on parade.
Queen Mary and the ladies of the Royal party will arrive by motor-car and set down at the Royal Dais. The King, accompanied by the Duke of York and attended by the Field Officer in Brigade Waiting, two equerries, and an escort of Household Cavalry, will reach the saluting base at 11 a.m. His Majesty will be received with the Royal Salute. The Band will play while His Majesty inspects the line.
And so the ceremony will proceed : the consecration and presentation of the Colours, the march past, and the playing of the National Anthem in full by the Band.
The thousands watching, the millions listening, will remember that twenty years ago His Majesty, then Prince of Wales, served in France with the Brigade to whom this morning he is presenting Colours.

What do you think ?
Working for Profit, or Working for the Public
DOUGLAS JERROLD
The question of production for use or production for profit is being debated every day all over the country from the standpoint of the consumer. It may be interesting to consider it, for a change, from that of the worker. What is the essential difference between work in a Government office and work in a private business house? What difference in outlook does the one type of work require and produce as compared with the other type of work ? How far does the public-service motive really operate in a Government office, and how far does the profit-making motive really operate in private business ?
Douglas Jerrold 's qualification for thinking aloud on this subject is that his life has been nearly equally divided between Government service in Army, Ministry of Food, and Treasury, and ; private business.

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.
