Ninety million people visit the National Parks of England and Wales every year. But they are not ours, only ours to look after, according to Brian Redhead , President of the Council for National Parks. And now there are new threats to the parks, it is important, he argues, to remember the original aim of the parks legislation, which was to protect and enhance their beauty. Cedric Robinson , Royal Guide to the Sands, reveals some of the mysteries of Morecambe Bay. Plus at 12.55pm the weather with Bernard Davey

: Songs of Praise

from Aldeburgh
This small town on the Suffolk coast has changed little over the years: its income still comes from fishing, and from visitors to an area of unspoilt natural beauty.
In tonight's programme,
Pam Rhodes talks to Bob and Doris Ling , who look after the Snape Maltings concert hall, and Julia Lang , whose catchphrase 'Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin ...' conjures up childhood memories for millions. Their choice of hymns are sung in Aldeburgh parish church.
Praise, my soul, the king of heaven Spirit of God (Skye Boat Song), Eternal father, strong to save
(Melita), St Patrick 's breastplate, I need thee every hour. Breathe on me, breath of God (Trentham). Who would true valour see (Monks Gate). Rejoice! The Lord is King (Gopsal) Conductor JEREMY CULLUM Assistant producer

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.
