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 Scarborough
Most people think of Scarborough as a holiday resort and conference centre, but it still has a small fishing industry - and in tonight's programme Francis Appleby and his colleagues in the FILEY FISHERMEN'S CHOIR perform a medley of sea hymns. Among the people Geoffrey Wheeler meets are Kathy Staff (Nora Batty from Last of the Summer Wine), who's in Scarborough for the summer season, and a group of Christians who are involved in theatre of a less conventional kind.
Their hymns are among those sung by local people in the Church of St Martin-on-the-Hill.
Come, let us worship (Epiphany); My God loves me (Plalslr d'amour); God-head here in hiding (Adoro te); God moves in a mysterious way (London New); The Church's one foundation (Aurella), I serve a risen Saviour; Praise the Lord. you heavens, adore him (Austria)

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.
