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.
This week passionate gourmets and lovers of simple fare join in a celebration of food. To celebrate Shrove Tuesday, chef Anton Edelmann shares his perfect pancake recipe. Diane-Louise Jordan visits Bournville in Birmingham, the home of the chocolate bar, and John Eley, the cooking canon, explains some close links between the Bible and food.

Fern Britton and Nick Nairn from Ready, Steady, Cook give thanks for the enjoyment of food and, over in America, galloping gourmet Graham Kerr suggests some healthy fare to keep the body fit.

In Scotland Clarissa Dickson Wright from Two Fat Ladies looks at nice food for those eating on their own and, on the Isle of Man, chef Kevin Woodford explains why Jesus asked to be remembered with bread and wine.

Hymns include The Feast Is Ready to Begin, Bread of Heaven, Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow and Lord Enthroned in Heavenly Splendour. Producer Jeremy Kime : Editor Helen Alexander

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.
