Premiere of BBC series ‘Catholics’

Catholic World News - February 24, 2012

A three-part BBC series, “Catholics,” has premiered, with the opening episode devoted to men preparing for the priesthood. The second and third parts will examine the place of children and women in the Church.

Filmmaker Richard Alwyn’s technique is “observational, unobtrusive, and non-judgemental--but he also has a talent for getting people to open up,” stated a Daily Telegraph review. “This, combined with a clear respect for his subject, and a keen eye for filmic irony (a statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus standing in front of an old sign for Guinness; a jumble of discarded crucifixes in a cardboard box in a sacristy) resulted in a gorgeously shot, beautifully judged film that gave a strong and honest sense of the emotional and intellectual challenges of devoting one’s life to the Roman Catholic Church today.”
