with the Girl Guides Six hundred and fifty
Brownies, Guides, Rangers and their leaders have gathered in Chelmsford Cathedral for tonight's Songs of Praise. They're celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Girl
Guides Association, which began in controversy but today is a movement with more than eight-and-a-half million members in 108 countries around the world. Sally Magnusson meets
Amanda Webb , a 10-year-old Guide who is the ears and voice of her family, and Irene Hotchin , winner of six medals for Great Britain in the 1984 Disabled Olympics. The Third South Weald
Brownie pack invites Sally to join in the fun and the games and to visit Little
Baddow in Essex for their annual Thinking Day ceremony.
Among the hymns is one written specially for the anniversary: Let's take hands in friendship.
Lord of our growing years (Little Comard); God is love (Theodoric); Far round the world (Woodlands): Jesus good above all other (Quern
Pastores): Unto the hills around me (Alberta): Forth in thy name, 0 Lord I go (Song 34); Let's take hands in friendship

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.
