Publicly financed broadcasting system in Britain. A private company at its founding in 1922, it was replaced by a public corporation under royal charter in 1927. 1 With its sense of tradition in the Pearly Kings and Queens A Pearly King (feminine form Pearly Queen) is a person dressed in a traditional cockney costume covered in mother-of-pearl buttons. These costumes were treasured heirlooms, hand made and sometime representing much of a family's material worth. and a very strong connection to royalty by having the Queen Vic pub on the corner, you'd think they'd make more of an effort to honour the monarch in Walford.

jubilee - a special anniversary (or the celebration of it) back in 1897. Just ask Cora and Rose, as they were probably in the crowds...
