The Agony & The Ecstasy:
The fascinating story of Michelangelo's (Charlton Heston) painting of the Sistine Chapel as the project descends into a battle of wills fuelled by artistic and temperamental differences.

The Greatest Story Ever Told:
Lavishly produced and honoured with five Academy Award nominations, this glorious epic is an inspiring recreation about the life of Jesus of Nazareth, from his humble birth and teachings to his Resurrection.

The Bible:
Starring George C. Scott and directed by the legendary John Huston, the greatest stories of the Old Testament come together in this spectacular story of man's creation, fall survival, and faith.

Demetrius & The Gladiatores:
The enormously successful sequel to The Robe continues the story of the Greek slave sentenced to train as a Roman Gladiator in the ultimate test of faith.

The Song Of Bernadette:
Bernadette Soubirous is a sickly 14-year-old girl whose visions of a "beautiful lady" not only cure her illness, but through a fountain that suddenly materialises near her vision, all visitors who bathe in it as well.

The Robe:
One of the silver screen's greatest biblical epics and nominated for five Academy Awards. The Robe stars Richard Burton as the Roman centurion whose life is chaged forever when he wins Christ's robe in a gambling game after the crucifixion.

Francis Of Assisi:
Born into a life of privilege, one of today's most beloved saints was a lusty adventurer who heard the voice of God and abandoned his secular for a higher calling, only to see his life's work threatened by a corrupt and jealous church hierarchy.

The Story Of Ruth:
This stunning retelling of the famous Old Testament story sees the beautiful Ruth sold to worshippers of the stone god Chemosh. Moved by the plight of a Jewish slave, she frees him and befriends his mother. Tragedy then compels her to travel to Jerusalem in search of the peace she longs for.
