Organist, Daisy Garlett
The Secretary of the West Wickham, Kent, Fraternal of Clergy and Afinisters, here introduces tonight's service:
' I don't hold with all these denominations. After all, we're all making for the same place.' That is sometimes said as an excuse for not belonging to any church by those who are not making for anywhere in particular. But in one typical outer London suburb, West Wickham in Kent, ' all these denominations ' will be making for the same place this evening. From six different churches, Church of England, Baptist, Congregational, and Methodist, processions of worshippers will converge on the High Street and go together to Emmanuel Congregational Church: last year they made for a Parish Church; all have their turn. These processions will come from the old Parish Church, still on the edge of open country, where rectors of West Wickham have ministered for six and a half centuries before there was any London suburb on their doorstep; from two new Parish Churches, and from three new Free Churches, all built or at least begun only just before the war, to serve this new town of some twenty thousand people living in road after road of houses built for city workers.
At West Wickham. along with many other places, we see no reason why we should just sit down and accept ' our unhappy divisions.' We do not expect every member of a family to be made on the same pattern; we do expect them to be a united family, however differently Peter puts things from Paul. So on Whit Sunday this united service will be conducted by the whole Fraternal of clergy and ministers.

: Five Years After

The memories and reflections of seven men - Richard Dimbleby, Chester Wilmot, Maurice Brown, Robert Dunnett, Colin Wills, Joel O'Brien, and Stanley Maxted - who were present at the invasion of France on June 6, 1944, and who have since revisited the beaches and battlefields of Normandy
Programme edited and produced by Maurice Brown
In writing and recording our memories and thoughts of D-Day and the days that followed it, we have tried to speak for everybody who was there; by recording our tears and laughs, our actions and mistakes, we hope we have reflected the experiences of many.
To revisit is enheartening: Normandy has made a mighty recovery, but above all, as Colin Wills so aptly puts it at the end of our broadcast, 'it is also good to encounter the living sense of shared memory, a shared experience, a sympathy between those who waited and those who came ashore on June 6 five years ago.' - Maurice Brown

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
