The Concept

“The epic 6x50 minute series is the final part of a trilogy dating back to 2003 when with the support of TG4 in Ireland and S4C in Wales we started to develop the series Heaven on Earth looking at howethe six major religions of the world found expression through the Art and Architecture. This series was broadcast in 2004 and found widespread success and went on to be broadcast across the world on channels such as A&E History Channel International US, History Channel UK, History Channel Latin America, SRG SSR idée suisse - Switzerland, YLE Teema Finland and SBS Australia.

This first series was followed up by a series called The Lost Gods exploring the forgotten Gods of six ancient world civilizations. The Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Maya, Inca and the Celts. TG4 in Ireland and S4C in Wales were again on board and were joined by Vision TV in. As with the first series The Lost Gods had widespread appeal and did very well.

Through out the years when we were making Heaven on Earth and The Lost God many in the production team felt we should return to the theme of the Art and Architecture of Christianity because of the richness of the subject so it was fantastic when the main broadcaster partners signed up to the final part of the trilogy. “
