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 Gravesend
Princess Pocahontas is one of the many people associated with Gravesend's past - Shakespeare, Dickens, Turner and Hogarth are others. Bernard Jackson meets some of today's inhabitants of the historic Thames-side borough of Gravesham and asks them about their work, their faith and their favourite hymns, sung tonight in the Milton Road Methodist Church.
All creatures of our God and King (Lasst uns erfreuen); Life is great! So sing about it (Litherop); Lead us, heavenly Father, lead us (Mannheim); Jesus, my strength, my hope (Leominster); In Christ there is no east or west (St Stephen); Sun of my soul, thou Saviour dear (Abends); When I needed a neigh-hour; Let earth and heaven agree (Millennium)

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.
