Songs of Praise


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.
from Edmonton and Tottenham
Last October a vicious riot erupted on the Broadwater Farm estate in Tottenham, North London. One year later Cliff Michelmore talks to some of the people involved. He meets the Wiltshires, whose home was damaged, and a policeman who was severely injured in the fighting. Cliff also discovers hope in a project designed to help young people find employment. Christians from Edmonton and Tottenham sing their songs of praise in the parish church of All Saints, Edmonton, which is celebrating its 850th anniversary.
Thine be the the glory (Maccabaeus); Dear Lord and Father of mankind (Repton); Make me a channel of your peace; Great is thy faithfulness; Jesu, lover of my soul (Aberystwyth); A cry in the night (Notting Hill); Jerusalem; Let there be peace on earth.

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.
