Harold Williamson Revisits the Pop Preacher
Paul Jobson could always make people sit up and take notice. In the swinging 60s the young curate turned his church crypt into a disco and talked about sex in a language teenagers could understand. He was certain he could get them back to the church. He failed, but he hit the headlines before he left for a quiet post in the country. Then he was back in another London parish. This time he was after the whole family - with a bar in the crypt. But does draught bitter win worshippers or just domino players? Film editor JESSE PALMER
