GEOFFREY DAMS (tenor) BAND GEOFFREY DAAIS BAND
A Coldstream Guards Band existed as early as 1742. Many of the early bands were composed of civilians; but in 1783 a petition was made for the regiment to have a military band of its own, and one was enlisted in Hanover by the Duke of York. It consisted of 12 players. The number was augmented to 20 in 1815, and the Band was in Paris during the occupation by the Allies. A hundred and fifteen years later, the Coldstream Guards Band represented British Army bands at the funeral of Marshal Foch.

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.
