Under the dome

Television: Eager to learn all there is to know about our diocese's mother church, I couldn't miss Secrets of St Paul's Cathedral.  How does the stupendous dome stay up?

Woman of her time

Gillean Craig reviews the secret life of a Tudor woman

Rabbinical work

Television:  THE struggles of the Church of England to achieve the ordination of women were placed in sobering perspective by Regina: The first woman rabbi

Seventy years later

Television:  TOUCHED by Auschwitz, marking the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the concentration camp, was one of several documentaries broadcast last week on the theme of the Holocaust

Novel approach

Television: STUDIES of the Reformation, and the general understanding of the origin of the Church of England, will be given a tremendous boost by the screening of Wolf Hall, BBC2's adaptation of Hilary Mantel's novels

Too many twists

Television: AM I the only viewer in Britain not to be entranced by Broadchurch (ITV, Mondays)? This murder thriller has returned, receiving universal plaudits that eclipse even the rapturous praise showered on the first series

Palatial ceremony

Television: Britain's Tudor Treasure: A night at Hampton Court celebrated the palace's 500th anniversary and was an appetite-whetter for the fast-approaching TV realisation of Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall

Buried treasure

Television: IT IS curious, when you think about it, that the Sovereign is awarded the Christmas Day TV message to the nation, while the Primate gets the New Year address. Logically, for cultic and social reasons, it would make more sense the other way round

Royal influence

Television: FOR my money, there is now only one genuine religious programme each year on the main TV channels

Where's the challenge?


Television: HEARTWARMING, uplifting, religious - but essentially a safe bet. BBC2 offers us another fly-on-the-wall documentary series about the life of one of our great cathedrals: Canterbury Cathedral 

Some serious sci-fi

Television: HOW good to have a serious TV documentary that considered basic theological questions: what constitutes humanity, the nature of life itself, the responsibility of the Creator to his creation
