from Clifton
The village of Clifton sits on the edge of the Avon Gorge, just ten minutes walk from
Bristol's city centre. It is best known for Brunei's famous suspension bridge, built over 100 years ago, and more recently for its Roman
Catholic Cathedral of St Peter and St Paul, the newest cathedral in Britain, where
Christians from the area have come together to sing their favourite hymns.
Cliff Michelmore comes to Clifton to hear about the wedding that almost didn't take place. Granville and Sandra Sykes postponed their engagement when Granville contracted cancer and entered hospital for extensive treatment. He tells the amazing story of how God sustained him through his darkest hours.
Christ is made the sure foundation (Westminster Abbey); God is love, let heaven adore him (Abbot's
Leigh); Lord. for tomorrow and its needs (Providence); Jesus Christ you sacrificed; Great is thy faithfulness; When I survey the wondrous cross (Rockingham); Let all mortal flesh keep silence (Picardy); Thy hand, 0 God, has guided (Thornbury);

Tonight Humphrey Burton presents The Quest for Reginald Goodall
The first television portrait of one of Britain's finest conductors, now 83 and one of the greatest living interpreters of Wagner. Yet until he was 67 virtually nobody outside the operatic profession knew his name, and even within the opera world he was thought of as a back-room boy, a coach rather than a conductor.
However, in 1968 came The Mastersingers at Sadler's
Wells, which Bernard Levin described as 'one of the most outstanding musical revelations of modern times'. The Ring followed at the English National Opera and 'Reggie' has become a legend in the opera world.
Taking part in this film is the Orchestra of the Welsh
National Opera, whom Goodall conducted for their recent production of The Valkyrie. Also taking part are:
MAISIE ALDRIDGE, JOAN CROSS

: Everyman Profiles

The Rock That Doesn't Roll Cliff Richard became a Christian 20 years ago. At the time the pop pundits predicted that his conversion would lose him his following among young people - but today Cliff is more popular than ever.
In this Everyman profile Cliff Richard talks about the private side of his life, and the claims that Christian morality makes on his personal philosophy, lifestyle and sexual conduct. With performances from the Albert Hall and other gospel tours, this film sets out to explore the feelings, questions and beliefs behind Britain's biggest pop phenomenon.

: The Sky at Night

Shells Around the Stars
Do other solar systems exist? Information from the infra-red astronomical satellite, IRAS, indicates that they may well do so. Many stars - some of them similar to our sun - have been found to be associated with what may be planet-forming material.
In this programme
Patrick Moore gives the latest result, and speculates as to their significance.

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.
