This new TV series comes to the UK via Channel 5. It begins broadcasting on Saturday 30th Novemember 2013 at 9pm, presumably fitting perfectly in the run up to Christmas.
The reviews of this have been very positive and picks key events from the Old and New Testaments that cover the whole journey as the People of God to the first early Christians. Watch the trailer here:
The first episode takes the viewer from Noah all the way to The Promised Land via Abraham and Moses. It should be great viewing for all students and teachers of RE!
