: Songs of Praise

from Greenock
In 1711 John Scott founded a small herring-boat building firm that was to become one of the great shipyards on the Clyde, providing work for thousands. But just over a year ago the Scott Lithgow yards faced the axe and the loss of over 4,000 jobs.
Tonight Ian Gall meets some of the local Christians who were directly involved in the struggle to preserve hope and save the yards. They join congregations from many of the Inverclyde churches in the Old Kirk to sing their choice of hymns.
Ye gates, lift up your heads on high (St George's. Edinburgh); Lord, who in thy perfect wisdom (Blaenwern); What a friend we have in Jesus
(Converse); Almighty Father of all things that be (Chilton foliat); Mine eyes have seen the glory (Battle hymn); 0 for a closer walk with God (Martyrdom); God of concrete, God of steel (Parkhill); Thine be the glory (Maccabaeus)

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
