A three-hour primetime documentary about the origins of Christianity
An unusual subject for a news team to undertake, this documentary is a sweeping examination of the roots of Christianity told through the stories of Jesus and the Apostle Paul. The program takes viewers on an educational journey to the current-day Mediterranean settings where centuries ago a small Jewish sect took hold and ultimately displaced the Roman gods. It is an extraordinarily beautiful production with an exemplary balance of visual beauty, archival sources, editing, music and narrative power.
