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.
A harvest festival celebration. In his novel Under the Greenwood Tree
Thomas Hardy describes his grandfather's long-lost world of rustic orchestras that played in galleries in the west end of churches. By the 1870s they were gone, ousted by a new breed of Victorian high churchmen who demolished their galleries and burned their music. So what were they like?
With the help of today's Christians of the Puddletown and Abbotsbury areas of Dorset, Debbie Thrower goes back to 1840 to see how a bumper harvest was celebrated. Hymns: Come, Ye Thankful People Come (St George); 0 Come, Loud Anthems Let Us Sing; Come Thou
Conqueror of the Nations (Calcutta); Psalm 47 (Old Foster); Behold the Morning Star Arise; The Last Full Wain Has Come (Creation).

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.
