THE CORONATION, 2 June 1953

Transmission schedules

Ever since Coronation Day, I have kept my copy of the Transmission schedules which are on faded typed duplicated sheets of Foolscap-size paper. Talking to Sylvia Peters in 1996 I discovered that she had kept her copies, too. I have tried to reproduce the original layouts fairly closely (including any "typos" - well, it adds to the excitement!). Exceptions are that words which were originally underlined I have put into bold type to avoid possible confusion with internet hyperlinks, and page breaks have been removed.

In those days practically all announcements were scripted and everything planned to the second as far as possible.
