Long ago /BBC/ITV had to provide an hour of religious programming on a Sunday night IE The God slot.
If I recall correctly the BBC was less imaginative filling their hour with Songs of Praise and talking head vicars etc.
ITV on the other hand were really innovative, they had some cracking programmes in this slot which pondered the human condition, morals,spirituality etc and made it palatable for a progressive audience.
Adam Smith was in this slot as a Sunday night soap opera,from what I remember it was well written and acted with Andrew Keir his usual excellent self, as a man of the cloth who begins the series questioning his life and how he goes forward- when his wife dies…that how I remember it anyway.
So no car chases or blood and guts just 1970s good chatty drama about human issues.
Adam Smith ran for two seasons, there were 12 episodes in the first series and 27 episodes in the second series, series one was planned as a thirteen-episode series, though only twelve episodes were ever transmitted, the untransmitted episode (previously unseen) is included on the complete first series 2 DVD set.
