Songs of Praise
BBC One Sun 16 May 1.15 pm
Aled Jones visits the cathedral town of Exeter in Devon. He explores the underground passages that brought water from Saint Sidwell’s Well to the cathedral. We meet Mark Edwards, a cyclist who makes a 25 mile round trip every Sunday to deliver DVDs to fellow members of his church’s congregation who don’t have access to its online services. It’s also Dementia Action Week and YolanDa Brown meets Jo Earlam, a local woman who has mapped the city to create safe routes to encourage those living with dementia to get out and about. At St David’s Church we hear how they’ve turned lockdown into an opportunity for a different sort of bible study group, and there’s also music from there, led by hymn writer Graham Kendrick. Aled performs Pie Jesu with the current BBC Young Chorister of the Year and launches the search to find the next winner of the competition.
