Songs of Praise joins London and Jamaica in a celebration of Christmas. Jamaica was the first Caribbean member of the Commonwealth to achieve its independence and as everybody of Jamaican origin in the UK will tell you, this year is the 25th anniversary of that event. The year's celebrations are to be rounded off with a special link-up edition of Songs of Praise in which Christians from many churches in Kingston join in singing their favourite carols with relatives, friends and well wishers in London.
Roger Royle introduces the London end and meets Christians of Jamaican origin who talk about their experiences of living in Britain.
In Jamaica Leonie Forbes tours round the island and tells something of its history including 'Jonkunnu', the carols and dance performed each year at Christmas by wandering bands of musicians.
Joy to the world (Antioch); No snow on our Carib island; Island in the sun; Sing de chorus, clap yu han; Silent night; And the glory of the Lord (Messiah); The Virgin Mary had a baby boy; Mary's boy child; Isaiah cried; Rejoice my soul Conductors

Paul Drake Jr:
with Philip Hayton Weather
In the past 150 years there have been thousands of reported appearances of the Virgin Mary , usually to children. The visions warn of disaster and call to prayer. The Pope, a keen visitor to the shrines where the visions are commemorated, has declared 1987-88 a Marian year.
Many women in the Church are troubled by the cult: they say it has gone hand in hand in the Christian tradition with the subjection of women and the fear of sexuality. Yet it remains magnetic. The Virgin Mother still draws thousands of sick and despairing to her shrines in search of wholeness and hope.
