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 Aylesbury
The 13th-century church of St Mary is at the physical and spiritual heart of the county town of Buckinghamshire. During recent renovation work, the church was found to be falling down. The options were demolition or rebuilding the church into a community centre. The church was saved and now every day St Mary 's is filled with a variety of activities.
Roger Royle meets the people responsible for this rebirth. He visits Christians working in the burns unit at the nearby Stoke Mandeville Hospital and in Aylesbury prison. He also discovers a couple building the world's first wildlife teaching hospital.

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.
