It has been 16 years since the national anthem has been played at the end of the day's programming on BBC1, its demise a result of the arrival of 24-hour broadcasting. Now Jim Shannon (left) has backed a Commons motion calling for it to be revived. The motion "regrets the decision to play God Save The Queen on BBC1 for the last time on 3 October, 1997, and believes that this proud tradition should be reinstated".
