from the Mission to London Queen's Park Rangers
Earlier this summer the Mission to London, headed by the uncompromising Latin American evangelist Luis Palau , took over Queen's Park Rangers football stadium to preach the Gospel. Each night thousands made their way to the stadium to listen and to sing their songs of praise, accompanied by the SALTMINE BAND. Paul McDowell went along, too, to meet some of the people involved in the Mission, talk to some of those who went to hear, and question Luis Palau himself about his beliefs and methods.

Haydn's Mass in D minor (Nelson)
Shortly after completing the Mass, in 1798, Haydn learned of Nelson's victory at the Battle of the Nile, prompting him to add the trumpet calls at the end of the Benedictus. Nelson himself heard a performance in 1800 and, although not a direct tribute to the Admiral, the work acquired 'The Nelson Mass' as a nickname. Eiddwen Harrhy (soprano)

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.
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.
