Praise Be!


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
with Thora Hird
'Thora's back - it must be summer,' writes a viewer, one of many who have written to choose their favourite hymns.
Thora Hird , at home in Sussex, invites you to join her in listening to some of the most requested hymns from the past year of Songs of Praise.
This week the theme is Praise which provides a clue to Thora's mystery tour, when she visits one of England s most beautiful buildings.
All people that on earth do dwell (Old Hundredth); 0 for a thousand tongues (Lyngham); Praise to the holiest in the height (Gerontius); Crown Him with many crowns
(Diademata); How great Thou art; Thine be the glory (Maccabaeus); Sing hosanna;
Let us all praise the Lord; Praise, my soul, the King of heaven (Praise, my soul)

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
