Kirsty Lang presents a Front Row special celebrating the big screen's love affair with the Biblical epic. It's a genre that defined the golden age of Hollywood, but it's undergoing something of a resurrection in 2014 thanks to the release of Darren Aronofsky's Noah starring Russell Crowe, a film soon to be joined in cinemas by Ridley Scott's Exodus, and the long awaited prequel to The Passion of The Christ - Mary. And whilst general audiences seem hungry for the bible on screen, churches across America are showing Son of God, a faithful retelling of the life of Jesus Christ. In the company of Hollywood's hottest directors, Life of Brian's Michael Palin, and the British actor who played Jesus Christ himself, join Kirsty as she sets off on her own pilgrimage in search of the roots of the biblical epic. Presenter: Kirsty Lang Producer: Craig Smith.
