Catholics: A new BBC Television series which explores what it is like to be Catholic today.
The Catholic Church in the Diocese of Westminster is set to feature in a new series of three films to be shown on BBC 4 Television in February and March 2012.
Produced by documentary film maker Richard Alwyn, ‘Catholics’ goes behind the headlines to explore what it is like to be Catholic today. Each of the three films – one about men, one about women, one about children – is an intimate portrait of a different Catholic world, revealing Catholicism to be a rich and complex identity and observing how this identity shapes people’s lives.
The series starts on Tuesday February 21, 9pm, with ‘Priests’ filmed over six months and an intimate behind-the-scenes portrait of Allen Hall seminary in London. It examines the lives of those who believe themselves to be God’s shepherds in the 21st Century.
‘Show me the child of seven and I’ll show you the man’, goes the Jesuit proverb. The second film Children, to be shown on Tuesday February 28 at 9pm, observes the truth of this famous saying in a film about children becoming Catholic.
Women, the third film in the series to be shown on Tuesday March 6 at 9pm, focuses on Catholic women and how Catholicism has shaped their lives.
