The popularity of this recently-instituted series of mid-week hymn recitals from Ulster churches has grown considerably. It was originally intended to take the microphone to a few Belfast churches, but the idea has now been extended to churches elsewhere in the Province.
The present church of St. Comgall's, from where this evening's broadcast comes, is of no great antiquity, but Bangor itself has a long and honourable religious history. The monastery and abbey of Bangor were founded about 559 A.D. by Comgall, a priest who came of an illustrious family at Magheramorne. For eight centuries Bangor was one of the most renowned religious centres in Europe. Today all that remains of the monastery is one piece of old wall, but it is appropriate that the present church should be in the centre of what was the ancient Bangor.

Adrian Robinson
Adrian Robinson is the second speaker in this new series of talks, in which well-known microphone personalities in Northern Ireland have been invited to spend firteen minutes at the microphone with a free hand to say what they like on a subject of their own choice.
Asktd what his choice would be,
Adrian Robinson hinted darkly that he might chat about art, as he knew so little about it. He is, in his own words, a ' congenital Civil Servant', being both the son and the grandson of Civil Servants. Actually he is assistant secretary to the Northern Ireland Ministry of Home Affairs, and is in charge of the Local Government Division. As a broadcaster he will be remembered for his unrehearsed discussions with Michael McGilligan , and also with Denis Johnston in the ' Men Talking ' series.

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.
