Children of Jehovah [electronic resource]

The Jehovah's Witnesses are a fast-growing, media-shy religious sect that believe that Armageddon is rapidly approaching. Its members find fulfillment in their tight-knit community and in church activities, including the extensive proselytizing required by the faith. Children raised as Jehovah's Witnesses are often torn between the rewards of conforming to its laws and the freedoms of a secular world. This program focuses on the pressures adolescents and adults come under as they decide to stay in the church or leave, and on the impact of the terrible penalty faced by those who do leave. They are "dis-fellowshipped" and their religious community, including their own family, is required to cut off all communication with them.

Priests [electronic resource]: Catholics in Britain

Allen Hall is one of only three remaining Roman Catholic seminaries in Britain. In this intimate portrait, we follow Allen Hall's seminarians as they pursue a timetable that swings from the esoteric to the practical - from biblical Greek to lessons on how to live a celibate life - learning that the seminary is no "priest school." Beyond learning the tricks of the priestly trade, the seminarians are preparing to be fundamentally altered as human beings. They believe that at ordination they will be materially changed as men, only then able to celebrate the Eucharist and perform the act that is central to Catholic life - the transformation of bread and wine into the body and blood of Jesus Christ. This mystery is what Catholic priests exist for - to make Christ present in the world. Fil [...]
