Olney on The One Show!

Incase you missed it- Onley was on BBC's The One Show on Tuesday evening, following the story of John Newton and the famous hymn, Amazing Grace, which was written in Olney. 

If you missed it, have a watch on iPlayer (skip forward to 12 minutes in to watch the part about Olney and Amazing Grace!)

The programme includes an interview with ex-MP Jonathan Aitken who has written a biography about John Newton, titled John Newton: From Disgrace to Amazing Grace, and fits in some of Olney's beautiful scenery, as well as a performance of Amazing Grace in St Peter and St Paul's church in Olney by the Gospel Touch choir.
