: Your Songs of Praise Choice

with Thora Hird
' Nice to see you back. You herald the return of the summer days,' ends one of the letters Thora has received requesting hymns about love. Thora has chosen some beautiful moments from the last year of Songs of Praise, hymns that reflect a passage that she reads from St Paul 's first letter to the Corinthians. ' There is nothing love cannot face; there is no limit to its faith, its hope and its endurance. Love will never come to an end.'
What wondrous love; A cry in the night (Notting Hill); Immortal love (Bishopthorpe); The captives' hymn; 0 love how deep, how broad, how high (Mach's mit mir Gott); The King of love my Shepherd Is (Dominus reglt me); Bind us together; I give my hands; My song is love unknown.

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.
