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 Romsey Abbey
Today is the first Sunday of Lent, a time when Christians reflect on their faith. Songs of Praise visits Romsey Abbey, which has stood for 850 years as a place of prayer and pilgrimage. More recently it has become the last resting place of Earl Mountbatten.
Geoffrey Wheeler meets David Clegg , voted this year's Choir Boy of the Year, who sings the 'Nunc Dimittis', and talks to Ann Rispin , who went to teach in Africa and came back with an adopted Ethiopian daughter. The people of Romsey sing their favourite hymns.
0 the deep deep love of Jesus (Ebenezer); Eternal glory of the sky; Lord of all hope-fulness (Slane); Lead us, heavenly Father, lead us (Mannheim); The whole wide world for Jesus! (Wolvercote); Immortal, invisible God only wise (St Denio); Nunc Dimittis (Burgon); 0 thou who dost accord us (Innsbruck)

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.
