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 St Asaph, Clwyd
Although St Asaph claims to have the smallest cathedral in the British Isles, it has played an important part in the life of Welsh Christianity. It was here in the 16th century that Bishop William Morgan completed the first translation of the Bible into Welsh.
Noreen Bray visits St Asaph and talks to some of the cathedral's congregation, among them a member of the cathedral choir DON Rowortii. And we hear about the life of Gerard Manley Hopkins from DERMOT AND WINIFRED DOYLE when they visit St Beuno's Jesuit College, where he wrote much of his poetry.

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.
