A recorded impression of the annual Bo'ness Children's Fair from the point of view of the central figure-the Queen
Produced by Tom Dawson
The crowning of Bo'ness Children's Queen is a ceremony typical of any number of small towns in Scotland. Three schools in this East Coast sea-port take their turn ifl providing the Queen, who is elected by her fellow pupils in the two top classes. Unsuccessful candidates become ladies-in-waiting.
T. P. Dawson has been with the recording van at the preparations .for the event on Thursday, and at the actual ceremony yesterday, to give listeners a sound-picture of the festival.
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.
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.
