A Model of the Coronation Procession

Three thousand figures and pieces in three sets, altogether fifteen feet long.
The building of this model - the scale is three-eighths of an inch to a foot - took H. Edward Offord and his brother, Frank Offord, some four months. It is 15 feet long, 6 feet high, and 3 feet deep. The proscenium opening is 13 feet by 2 feet.
Edward Offord was also responsible for a model of the Queen Mary which was used in the Lord Mayor's Show of 1934. Briefly, viewers will see the curtains open to disclose a representation of a 150-yard section of Westminster. Soldiers line the pavement, and behind them is the crowd. The roadway itself is clear. Then the sound of military music is heard and the procession comes into view. The effect of movement is done by means of a series of small platforms on an endless belt.

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.
