The church from which this service comes stands on the banks of the Kelvin, just a short way downstream from Glasgow's new Broadcasting House. Its crown tower is one of the landmarks of the north-west of the city.
It owes its foundation to the driving force of the Very Rev. Dr. George Reith (father of Sir John), who was minister of the College Free Church. It received its name in memory of Nathaniel Stevenson , father of James Stevenson , LL.D., whose generosity was largely responsible for making the building possible. It was opened in February, 1902, as an extension church to serve as a place of worship for the College Church mission.
The Boys' Brigade, now a worldwide movement, was inaugurated in the College Church mission in 1883 by Sir William A. Smith. The original company, the 1st Glasgow, is now attached to Stevenson Memorial Church, and the officers and boys will be worshipping at this broadcast service.

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.
