Queen Hails Songs of Praise on 60th Anniversary

Ask a Question

I can't believe this programme has been around longer than I've been alive.

It's the world's longest running religious TV program.

I used to watch it as a kid, but I haven't watched it in years, do you watch it? Image

We watch it occasionally when we remember it's on. My mother in law has been on the show before. Our son always seems fascinated with the singing, he doesn't pay attention to the rest of it.

An interesting fact B

Roache is the longest-serving actor in a televised soap opera, honoured at the 2010 Guinness World Records ceremony for the achievement, having surpassed actor Don Hastings from the American soap As the World Turns, who previously held this title

He also appeared in some stage productions, then had uncredited roles in several films, and later small parts in tv serials such as Knight Errant Limited and Skyport.

A long time ago - must have been well over 40 years ago we had to go to a church where they were filming Songs of Praise. (cant remember if it was in Plymouth or Portsmouth) We were scrubbed within an inch of our lives and had to wear real sunday best - dressed up to the nines. Hated it. After all that we sat around the Tele to watch it when it went out and we were never in shot! I think they got close but never quite reached us - maybe our sunday best wasnt good enough! The church was a lot fuller than normal too!
