BBC ONE Winter/Spring 2006 Highlights
The Miracles of Jesus

BBC ONE Winter/Spring 2006 Highlights


The Miracles of Jesus


Today, miracles are seen as supernatural acts that defy the laws of nature; but in the first century AD, miracles were seen as a secret code – a set of signs and ciphers known only to the Jews.


As codes, they possessed many layers of meaning – about history, Israel, the Romans, God and Satan, good and evil.


But above all, the miracles were clues to the identity of Jesus of Nazareth.


Presented by Rageh Omaar, this series explores what the miracles said about Jesus.


Who did the disciples and his followers think He was? And did Jesus see Himself as the son of God?


The latest historical and archeological findings point to answers as surprising as they are fascinating.




Richard Hammond and the Holy Grail


Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond grew up on stories of knights and the Holy Grail.


Now he is embarking upon a 5,000-mile journey to find something that may not exist.


It is a story that has been 2,000 years in the making – but he has just two weeks to find the Holy Grail.


From the Aegean to the Atlantic, Richard's route takes him to some of the most intriguing places in Europe.


It is a journey littered with extraordinary stories: Arthurian legends, Templars, secret treasures and codes.


For centuries, the Grail has haunted the imagination with its conundrums and legends. Does the Grail exist? And if it does, what and where is it?
