[edit] Information

Broad in scope and bold in vision, this three-part series filmed around the world takes a fresh look at God to see how belief in a supreme being came about and whether religion and science contradict or complement each other. This is both the history and the mystery of God explored in a respectful spirit of intellectual curiosity—outstanding for use in courses ranging from comparative religion, to cultural anthropology, to philosophy of science. Professor Robert Winston hosts. A BBCW Production. 3-part series, 60 minutes each.

[edit] Life,the Universe and Everything

Beginning at the Gargas Caves, France—humankind’s first house of worship?—this program seeks to understand why our ancestors began to believe in one or more divinities and how, through the ages, different cultures have expressed that belief. Great mysteries such as death and nature are considered as factors in the evolution of religious faith as Robert Winston, archaeologist Jean Clottes, The British Museum’s Irving Finkel, and others discuss animism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Zoroastrianism. The Pyramid of the Moon, Teotihuacán; Bambalapitiya Temple, Sri Lanka; the Great Stupa, Anuradhapura; and the Atashgah fire temple, Isfahan, are just some of the sacred sites visited. A BBCW Production. (60 minutes)

[edit] No God,But God

In this program, Robert Winston focuses on monotheism as he continues to examine the building blocks of faith and humankind’s quest to plumb the nature of God. Visits to Mt. Sinai, the Tomb of the Patriarchs, the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, St. Peter’s Basilica, Mecca, and the Abalfazl and Imam Mosques, Isfahan, shed light on the beliefs that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam have in common and the issues that divide them. Featured experts include scholar Zaki Badawi, historian Elizabeth Lev, authors Jonathan Kirsch and Jack Miles, and Jonathan Sacks, Chief Rabbi of Britain. A BBCW Production. (60 minutes)

[edit] The God of the Gaps

Will modern science close the book on God, or can reason and faith coexist? This program analyzes how the process of scientific inquiry has challenged belief in a divine being. With visits to locations ranging from the CERN particle physics lab, to the Lourdes shrine, to Grace Fellowship Church, Kentucky, Robert Winston discusses the views of Pascal, Galileo, Newton, and Darwin; the Higgs boson, or “God particle”; the “God gene”; the curative power of faith; evolution versus creationism; and other topics with probability expert Stephen Unwin, physicists Jim Virdee and Jordan Nash, geneticist Dean Hamer, evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, and creationist Ken Ham. A BBCW Production. (60 minutes)
