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 Beccles Quay, Suffolk Holiday-makers and boating folk gather by the river with choirs and congregations from Suffolk and Norfolk to sing their Songs of Praise with the Wrentham Band and the East Norfolk Youth Jazz Orchestra.
Pam Rhodes discovers how the spiritual needs of holiday-makers are cared for, and goes messing about on the river with some waterbound missionaries. She takes a 'Swallows and Amazons' journey to the remotest part of the Broads to find a young man who lives in a resurrected 'Ark' and the last of the offshore fishermen tell tales of 50 years at sea, in all weathers, in the same tiny boat.
Shall we gather at the river? Our
God reigns: I need thee every hour; Seek ye first; God is love: let heav'n adore him (Hyfrydol); By the rivers of Babylon; Abide with me; To God be the glory

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.
