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 Thirsk
In the heart of North
Yorkshire lies the market town of Thirsk. A steady flow of visitors over the years has enjoyed the charming cobbled market-place and the serene beauty of nearby Sutton Bank. Geoffrey Wheeler discovered its delights many years ago, before it became famous as the home of James Herriot , the vet.
He now revisits Thirsk to meet June Bindoff , curate's wife and health visitor, and Jim Wilkinson , who built a church in his farmyard.
They are joined by members of other local churches, from Sowerby and the surrounding countryside, in St Mary's Church, Thirsk, for their Songs of Praise. All my hope on God is founded
(Michael); I heard the voice of Jesus say (Kingsfold); All that thrills my soul is Jesus: Lord of the dance: Jesus is Lord, creation's voice proclaims it; Little David , play on your harp: Love divine (Blaenwera); Father in high heaven (Evening Hymn)

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.
