I am delighted to find this item on IMDb. I have searched for it many times in the past, as I remember it as well as you can remember anything you saw at the age of 6 or so, 55 years ago. It ran on BBC once a week from Christmas to Easter, in 15 minute segments, if I recall correctly, and presented a memorable and intriguing life of Christ that has stayed with me all my life. I saw it at least twice, in at least two years.
I can still remember scenes such as Jesus holding a rock in his hands, refusing the devil's temptation to turn it into bread, or the roof being torn away before the paralytic is lowered to Him, or the scenes before Pilate and on the cross. (You know how the story ends, right?)
This is one series from my childhood I wish I could see again, if only to see if it was as good as I remember. It certainly made a lasting impression on me.
