of the Bells of St. Columb's
Relayed from Londonderry Preacher, The Most Rev. Dr. CHAS. F. D'ARCY, Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland
THIS famous peal of bells is, so far as can be ascertained, the oldest in Ireland. The newest bell was given by the citizens of Londonderry in 1671. Five were the gift of King Charles I in 1638. The remaining two were given by the Honourable the Irish Society, one in 1630 and the other ' recast for Londonderry steeple' in 1614, and are actually older than the Cathedral itself. They were not, however, correctly tuned, and attempts made since have not proved satisfactory. In recent years great advances have been made in the casting and harmonic tuning of bells. The 'Derry bells have recently gone through this new process, and the reconditioned peal will be formally dedicated by the Primate at this evening's ceremony. At the close of the service a team of ringers from St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin, will give an exhibition peal.

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.
