Hymn, The Church's, one Foundation
(A. and M. 215 ; E.H. 489)
-When this church was rebuilt a hundred years ago no traces were preserved of the ancient churches which in former days stood upon the same site, but although nothing is left of the buildings the Church of St. Mary was for centuries the only church in the borough. It was in- 1828 that a Public Vestry was held to decide that the church should be rebuilt, and the foundation stone of the present building was laid in 1832. The old spire was pulled down by ropes, and the top stone with the vane afterwards formed the summit of the bell-tower of the Girls' National School. The pointed cap-stone is still there, but the vane bearing the date 1789 has been restored to St. Mary's.
The Bishop of Truro, the Right
Reverend Joseph Wellington Hunkin , D.D., was consecrated in 1935, and he is the first Cornishman to become Bishop of Truro for nine hundred years.


Unknown: Joseph Wellington Hunkin

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.
