from Clifton
The village of Clifton sits on the edge of the Avon Gorge, just ten minutes walk from
Bristol's city centre. It is best known for Brunei's famous suspension bridge, built over 100 years ago, and more recently for its Roman
Catholic Cathedral of St Peter and St Paul, the newest cathedral in Britain, where
Christians from the area have come together to sing their favourite hymns.
Cliff Michelmore comes to Clifton to hear about the wedding that almost didn't take place. Granville and Sandra Sykes postponed their engagement when Granville contracted cancer and entered hospital for extensive treatment. He tells the amazing story of how God sustained him through his darkest hours.
Christ is made the sure foundation (Westminster Abbey); God is love, let heaven adore him (Abbot's
Leigh); Lord. for tomorrow and its needs (Providence); Jesus Christ you sacrificed; Great is thy faithfulness; When I survey the wondrous cross (Rockingham); Let all mortal flesh keep silence (Picardy); Thy hand, 0 God, has guided (Thornbury);

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.
