Of the military marches by Schubert originally written as duets for two players on one pianoforte, this one, in D major, is much the best known-too well known to need introduction to any audience. It has been arranged for practically every combination of instruments in use, and is, with every right, as familiar in the repertoire of military bands as in any other form.
This now famous march by Eric Coates began its career as the third number of a suite entitled ' London Everyday '. Such remarkable verve and brilliance was destined for greater things, and its adoption as the very thing to open and close the Saturday broadcasts of ' In Town Tonight' was a happy inspiration, as can well be imagined.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
