Velsheda
Built in the 1930s, the J Class yachts achieved a pinnacle of grace and beauty. Only ten of these massive racing machines were constructed to compete for the America's Cup or simply to provide for their wealthy owners a form of yachting on a grand scale.
Terry Brabent was determined that the J Class yacht should not pass into history.
Bob Fisher charts the struggle that resulted in the rebirth of the Velsheda.

: Songs of Praise

for Harvest
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, as President of World
Wildlife Fund International, introduces this special edition of Songs of Praise. It asks about the Christian responsibility for creation, and the exploitation of natural resources, at a time when overproduction and famine exist side by side. In Southwell Minster
Roger Royle joins local
Christians to sing traditional harvest hymns. He asks
GEOFF FARNSWORTH how he safeguards his business interests while still caring for the environment. A school choir travels from Blackburn to sing its own new harvest song. In Zambia President Kenneth Kaunda speaks of his faith, and reflects on an African answer to the use of natural resources; and the HERITAGE CHOIR sings an African setting of the Canticle of St Francis.
Come. ye thankful people, come (St George); All things bright and beautiful (Rutter); Morning has broken (Bunessan); For the beauty of the earth (Noricum); Care for your world; Canticle of the creatures; Let us. with a gladsome mind (Monkland) Prayer and blessing

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.
