: Songs of Praise

from Thirsk
In the heart of North
Yorkshire lies the market town of Thirsk. A steady flow of visitors over the years has enjoyed the charming cobbled market-place and the serene beauty of nearby Sutton Bank. Geoffrey Wheeler discovered its delights many years ago, before it became famous as the home of James Herriot , the vet.
He now revisits Thirsk to meet June Bindoff , curate's wife and health visitor, and Jim Wilkinson , who built a church in his farmyard.
They are joined by members of other local churches, from Sowerby and the surrounding countryside, in St Mary's Church, Thirsk, for their Songs of Praise. All my hope on God is founded
(Michael); I heard the voice of Jesus say (Kingsfold); All that thrills my soul is Jesus: Lord of the dance: Jesus is Lord, creation's voice proclaims it; Little David , play on your harp: Love divine (Blaenwera); Father in high heaven (Evening Hymn)

Warriors of Paradise
Iran Now: part 1
'In short, holy war and martyrdom bring about justice, the rule of virtue, even if only partially. This is fundamentally the logic of Islam and its teaching.'
(MR KARRUBI , National Head of Iranian Martyrs' Foundation)
The Iranian Revolution was one of the most important world events in recent decades. It radically shifted the balance of power in the Persian Gulf, and it has acted as a focus for a resurgence of confidence throughout the vast Islamic world. Yet the causes, meaning and basic facts of the situation in Iran remain largely unknown to outsiders.
In two films Everyman shows scenes from all levels of Iranian society, and gives a unique insight into the state of Iran today. In this, the first part, an examination of the religious beliefs that inspired the revolution -and still sustain it.

: Omnibus

with Humphrey Burton The Killing Fields
Ten years ago the war in South-East Asia was drawing to a bloody close. New York Times correspondent Sydney Schanberg was among the handful of journalists in Cambodia who wrote daily accounts of the fighting as civil war gripped the country. It nearly cost him his life - and the life of his Cambodian partner Dith Pran.
Now their story has been made into a major feature film by David Puttnam. In
Omnibus this week Schanberg and Pran describe the real story behind the film as BBC cameras join the unit on location in Thailand. Narrated by journalist and Cambodian expert William Shawcross.

Reflection Nebulae
There is a tremendous amount of material spread thinly between the stars. If a star happens to pass into a cloud of denser gas and dust, it will illuminate it to produce a reflection nebula. In this programme Patrick Moore talks to Dr Paul Murdin , who is in charge of the British telescopes at the new observatory in the Canary Islands, and shows some of the latest spectacular pictures of these strange clouds in space.

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.
