This week:
POP PREACHERS
The pop group tunes up. The house lights dim. Into the spotlight steps a young man in a while jacket. The scene for evensong, 1967-style, is set. And, as always. The Rev. Paul Jobson (Church of England) has a full house. Fr. Giarchi, a Roman Catholic priest, enjoys similar success, taking his special brand of religion to the people. In the North they call him the Tommy Cooper of the Church circuit, applauding his slick act performed against a backcloth of pin-ups and pop images. Two clergymen of different denominations, but with similar ideas and ideals: that you've got to have a gimmick to sell anything these days. Some worshippers disagree. Some ministers are incensed by the suggestion. Are the pop preachers selling Christianity or getting in the way of it? Producer, BILL MORTON

: THE PRIVATE LIFE OF THE KINGFISHER

Introduced by Peter Scott
The Kingfisher is the most beautiful bird in Britain. No more detailed and intimate ciné-study has ever been made of so secretive a bird. This programme follows the fortunes of a pair of Kingfishers on the river Test through their year's cycle, and sees them in sunshine and snow, above water and below, and inside their nest-hole.
Directed and filmed by RONALD and ROSEMARY EASTMAN
Written and produced by JEFFERY BOSWALL
The award-winning film previously shown in the Look series on BBC 1

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
