The Bible: A History: The Bash

The Bible: A History: The Bash

It could so easily have been just another bit of God-slot box-ticking. But The Bible: A History, in which Channel 4 has invited guest presenters to mull over some aspect of the Good Book, has been exciting a lot of comment from viewers. Summoning Gerry Adams to present a film about the life of Christ won't have done anything to dampen audience ardour. Channel 4 have responded by organising a public discussion. It takes place at the British Library next week on Wednesday 3 March at 6.30pm. Roger Bolton chairs, and the panel consists of three of The Bible's presenters - historian Tom Holland, journalist Rageh Omaar and theologian Robert Beckford. For some reason the Sinn Fein president has not accepted the invitation which was doubtless issued. For more information visit the Channel 4 TV Show blog.
