: Only Time Would Tell

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

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.
