: Songs of Praise

from Jarrow
Jarrow became world famous 45 years ago on 5 October, when 200 people set off with a petition to march almost 300 miles to the House of Commons in London.
Sam Rowan returns to the spot where the march began, to tell Geoffrey Wheeler about his memories of the famous crusade against unemployment and poverty.
Sam gathers with other towns-people to sing some of their favourite hymns in the church where the Venerable Bede worshipped 1,300 years ago; St Paul's.

: The Sunday Film: The War Lord

starring Charlton Heston
Richard Boone , Rosemary Forsyth Normandy in the 11th century When Chrysagon, a Norman war lord, comes to the isolated Druid village he has been assigned to oversee, he finds the villagers as primitive and steeped in ancient tradition as the desolate land that is their home. Franklin Schaffner 's fine film is a far cry from the usual Hollywood saga of the Middle Ages; his direction, an intelligent script and some masterly colour photography combine to produce an entirely convincing re-creation of a distant period and people. As the war lord, Charlton Heston gives one of his best performances.
Screenplay by JOHN collier and MILLARD KAUFMAN. Based on the play The Lovers by LESLIE STEVENS Produced by WALTER SELTZER

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.
