A six-hour documentary series on the rise of religious fundamentalism and its impact on world events
This sweeping series reported by Christiane Amanpour reveals the ways in which religious fundamentalists use politics, and sometimes violence, to influence national and world events. Amanpour and the CNN team document the rise of fundamentalism in Judaism, Christianity and Islam in three two-hour programs with reporting that spans seven countries and advances a common theme: religious extremists alienated by modern society are working to impose their beliefs on the rest of the world. In dozens of interviews with key political and religious leaders and ordinary citizens, Amanpour engages the faithful and challenges those who defend violence as a means to their ends.
