NATIONAL ANTHEM
Benediction pronounced by the Lord Bishop of Portsmouth
ON Whit-Sunday two years ago the Memorial Service of the British Legion was broadcast from the Cenotaph in Whitehall. A similar service will be held there as usual this Whitsun-tide, and at many other centres up and down the country. The most important ceremony this year, however, is that held at Southsea, near Portsmouth, where the Legion's Annual Conference is due to open on Whit-Monday. To pay this solemn tribute to the memory of their fallen comrades upwards of ten thousand ex-Service men will be assembled before the Naval War Memorial, which stands in a commanding position on Southsea Esplanade between the spacious green common and the sea. Incidentally, this Memorial, which rises to a height of a hundred feet, is a replica of the Naval Memorial at Chatham.

The Unveiling of The Canadian War Memorial at Vimy Ridge by HIS MAJESTY THE KING

in the presence of THE PRESIDENT of the French Republic Broadcast from Vimy
This afternoon, on the actual battlefield, in the presence of the President of the French Republic and more than 6,000 Canadians who served, or are relatives of those who served, in the war, His Majesty King Edward is to unveil the memorial dedicated to nearly 12,000 Canadians who fell in action and have no known grave.
Listeners are to hear the speech of His Majesty and that of the President of the French Republic, and it is hoped to arrange for a Canadian who can speak French as well as English to describe the scene, so that he can say a few words in French for the benefit of French Canadians who are listening.
The memorial is the work of the Canadian sculptor, Walter Allward. Two main pylons, each 138 feet high, stand on a base 230 feet long. There are twenty sculptured figures each 12 feet high. The names of all the missing are engraved on the base.
The Canadians present at the ceremony have travelled specially from Canada in five ships set apart for the pilgrimage. They will return to England on Tuesday, and on Wednesday there will be a short service at the Cenotaph, and a detachment will proceed to Westminster Abbey to lay a spray of Canadian flowers on the grave of the Unknown Warrior.

From the Horse Guards Parade,
Whitehall
This is the seventh annual Service to be held in memory of the 2,000 British Jews who laid down their lives in the War. The opening Prayer has been especially written by the Chief Rabbi for the 1936 Service. The Memorial Prayer is traditional. The ' Kaddish ' is a Prayer for the Dead and is in essence a Glorification of God and His Kingdom. An interesting feature is the singing by the whole congregation of ' The Adon Olam ' (Lord of the Universe) accompanied by the Band of H.M. Scots Guards. This ancient hymn is the best known and most popular in the Hebrew Liturgy.
Before the service,
Field-Marshal Lord Milne will inspect the Parade, and there will be a march to the Cenotaph.

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.
