Bell Ringing on BBC

I have received the following message from the CCCBR:
We are excited to announce we have received confirmation from BBC that the Blue Peter episode, featuring bell ringing and clips from the RWNYC will be aired this Thursday, 10 January at 17:30GMT, CBBC channel.
The programme will be repeated and available on BBC iPlayer for some time after also.

Any requests to CCCBR from interested new learners will be handled in the usual way, but it might be worth making sure towers in your association are aware this is being broadcast and are primed for any direct requests.

Armistice Ringing

Ringing for the Centenary of the WWI Armistice

Please add your planned attempts and then link your completed performances of any length: tolling, touches, quarter peals or peals. You may wish to link performances to other events as well, for instance if there is also a local project to mark the occasion. (It is at the Ringing World’s discretion how these will be printed.)
Ringing Remembers is the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers’ campaign to mark the Armistice Centenary, officially endorsed and sponsored by HM Government. It encourages muffled or half-muffled ringing for the 11am Act of Remembrance followed by open ringing at 12:30pm on Sunday, 11th November – aligning with the published agenda for processions and marches in celebration of peace. Nevertheless, knowing the national mood to acknowledge this centenary, CCCBR encourages all ringers to respond as they see fit, taking into account the wide variety of local circumstances. Ringing open at or around 12:30pm is the ideal and recommended option, but any time that afternoon/evening is also supported.
Ringing Remembers is also focusing on recruiting 1,400 new ringers to ring for the Armistice Centenary, in honour of the 1,400 known to have been lost in the war. There is a database of new Ringing Remembers learners at – please make sure you register yourself, or tell your new ringers to do so.
Performances will be collated and printed in the Ringing World soon after the 11th November, so please remember to link your performance to this event as soon as possible.
The Ringing World is also looking for special photographs to mark the occasion in its published coverage. You can link photographs to performances, submit them independently via the ‘Add Photos’ link on the left panel, or email
Make sure you link your performance so that it can be included.
