And very glad we are
to be back with you again on this great day. The weather unfortunately was
bad but, as one of our commentators said, the rain dampened everything
except our spirits.
And now for the rest of our programmes.
At five minutes to nine we shall hear the Sound Broadcast by Sir Winston
Churchill from Downing Street. At 9 o'clock, Her Majesty the Queen will
broadcast from Buckingham Palace, and immediately afterwards, our cameras
on the Victoria Memorial will show the scene outside the Palace.
We leace the Palace at 9.20 when there will be a special 60 minute edition
of the Television Newsreel which we shall interrupt for a few minutes at
about 9.40 to see Her Majesty make an appearance on the Palace Balcony and
give the signal for the floodlighting of London.
The news was received this morning in Great Britain of the conquest of Mount
Everest. And tonight, after the newsreel, Dr. Raymond Greene, as a
representative of the many previous expeditions that have pioneered the way
to this ultimate triumph will be in the studio to say a few words.
We end with another outside broadcast from the Queen's capital. We shall
take you to join the crowds lining the Thames Embankment at Westminster to
watch the display of Coronation night Fireworks.
Now very briefly I'll remind you of these times again.
