Hope in Difficult Times

Those of you who watch Songs of Praise may have seen Loretta Williams, one of the retired Readers from Ripon Cathedral, being interviewed by Aled Jones, last Sunday. In a fascinating snapshot of broadcasting 70 years ago, the programme showed The Revd J.G.Williams (Loretta's husband) leading daily prayer from Trinity Chapel in St Paul's Church, Bedford, to which city parts of the BBC service had been evacuated in the early years of the war.

Loretta's interview is about 4 minutes 30 seconds in.
