The Funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

 

To mark the Funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, join us for a day of special programmes.

Andy Marriott (6.00 am) and John Peters (7.30am) begin the day with a selection of fitting music. At 10.00, as the final guests file into Westminster Abbey, David Lloyd plays music and sets the scene. 

After the news at 11.00, as the Service begins, Bill Bingham on Boom plays more fitting music - plus insight into the occasion from our colleagues at Sky News. At 11.55, we fall silent as do our Nations for two minutes.

David Lloyd returns at 1.00 as a new era begins, with the mood of our music lifting a little. Roger Day joins you at 2, with Nicky Horne at 4.00 - drawing upon a special selection of music, with the theme of 'change'. News bulletins throughout the afternoon are live from Windsor Castle.
