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.
In 1883, only two years before his death at the - siege of Khartoum,
General Charles Gordon arrived in Jerusalem to carry out research into Biblical sites, convinced that the traditionally accepted locations for Calvary and the Holy Sepulchre were historically wrong. He identified Skull Hill , a rocky landmark outside the city wall, as the place of the Crucifixion, and the adjacent garden as the site of the Entombment.
Today, millions of Christians regard "Gordon's Calvary" and "Gordon's Tomb" as holy sites, and a mixed congregation joins this special edition of Songs of Praise presented by Alan Titchmarsh from the Garden
Tomb. Hymns include
Jesus Christ Is Risen Today, Thine Be the Glory and Led Like a Lamb to the Slaughter. Other sites visited include the Sea of Galilee and the Road to Emmaus.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
