What Parliament can make. Parliament can unmake ' had been the prophetic comment when Disraeli made Victoria Empress of India in 1887. And so it proved: in August 1947 Parliament ' unmade ' the fourth heir to Victoria's Imperial line, George vi.
As a group captain Peter Townsend served George vi for eight years and was with him during the very period when his Empire was unmade. But Peter Townsend's involvement with the Empire started with his birth in Burma to a family who had served their Emperors for two generations. He traces the evolution of Empire into Commonwealth during the years when he was equerry to the last Emperor. Producer HELEN FRY

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.
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.
