The Real King Herod

Well, our telly has gone on the blink here (perhaps Who Wrote the Bible? was just too much for it), but it's worth noting that Channel 4 in the UK are again providing the most interesting NT related programming:

The Real King Herod

It's 7.00 pm on Channel 4 today. I don't know anything about this one beyond what is on the useful website above. I can't even work out from that which company has made it. I once took part in a programme with a similar title for Channel 4 called The Real Jesus Christ but The Real . . . is a pretty standard title for this kind of documentary.

Helenann Hartley mentioned Let's hear it for the King of Judea on Radio 4 the other day, a programme I managed to catch some of, but alas it does not seem to be archived on the Radio 4 site any more. It was Terry Jones doing the business and a very enjoyable programme. Let's hope the Channel 4 one tonight is also worth watching.
