"What The World Thinks of God" -- another excellent BBC project, on the world's religions and how they affect ethics, government, and daily life. Including introductions to the main faiths (I always wondered about Baha'i myself), a hilariously biased piece on religion in America by a Southern Baptist minister, and some trippy imagery, it's another example of the Beebe's willingness to take on big, abstract subjects. Over here in the land of the First Amendment, we've got non-stop Ken Burns and pledge drives on PBS, and on broadcast TV...I mean, let's not kid ourselves.
