: Songs of Praise

from Detroit, USA
'Prepare for a blast!' warns Sally Magnusson as she goes to the gospel music capital of the world. 'We are Detroit, and we speak for gospel music' is the boast, and in the motor city there are recording artists, choirs and studios enough to live up to it. Hundreds of black Christians come together at one of Detroit's major
Pentecostal temples to sing their songs of praise as only they know how.
Their minister of music, Donald Vailes, is certain that God is at the centre of it all: 'He's worshipped, He's adored, and we get caught up in that.'
Songs of Praise captures the spontaneity and joy of that adoration and digs down to the roots of black American spirituality.

Hardly more than a year after leaving his home in Salzburg and moving to seek his fortune in Vienna, Mozart was married.
Leopold was very unhappy about his son's choice of partner; but his fears that domesticity would claim Mozart's attentions to the exclusion of his work were groundless. This was the period of some of Mozart's finest music, including his opera Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail and the string quartets dedicated to Haydn. Written by VICTOR POOLE and JANE GLOVER

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.
