A SPECIAL Remembrance edition of the BBC’s flagship Christian programme Songs of Praise will be centred on Portsmouth this Sunday.

Remembrance from Portsmouth will be broadcast at 1.15pm on Sunday, November 13.

The programme’s description says: ‘Remembrance Sunday is a poignant occasion for Christians in the armed forces as they join in prayer on the national day of reflection to remember those who have lost their lives whilst serving their country. The Rev Kate Bottley is at His Majesty’s Naval Base in Portsmouth to meet Christians working in the Royal Navy and to find out why their faith is so important at this time.’
