Everyman: Hell to Pay


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
The first of ten programmes
Q: Are you really saying that someone who is in all respects a good person, but has not found the Christian faith, is going to Hell?
A: Yes. It's not me saying it, it's God's revelation.
Luis Palau is an Argentinian evangelist. He's been called 'the new Billy Graham'. Over the past 17 years he has preached to five million people in 37 countries. Now he's arrived in Britain, and this coming June he'll be trying to save souls at the Queen's Park Rangers Stadium, west London, every night for a month. His message is uncompromising: he believes the many compromises the churches have made in recent times to arrest their decline have only accelerated it. His evidence? The thousands who have flocked to the more basic 'evangelical' Christianity that he-and other similar preachers-have offered over the past few years. But does this kind of fundamentalist Christianity really make sense in the 20th century? Can we still believe in the narrow path to Heaven, the broad highway to Hell? In this film Peter France follows Luis Palau through one of his big warm-up meetings at Wembley, examining his message and talking to those who claim it has changed their lives.

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.
