Special Television Event: BEYOND THE DA VINCI CODE

Special Television Event: BEYOND THE DA VINCI CODE

This Tuesday 5th April at 8.30pm, Prime brings Beyond The Da Vinci Codeto New Zealand television screens. The must see two-hour documentary special, examines the evidence for and against the radical vision of Christianity proposed in the bestselling book The Da Vinci Code.

The Da Vinci Codeauthor, Dan Brown, made the case that "the greatest story ever told" is more accurately the greatest story ever sold. This week on Prime, Beyond The Da Vinci Codeexamines many of the most enthralling and controversial ideas raised in Dan Brown’s runaway bestseller.

Beyond the Da Vinci Codelooks into many of the most contentious ideas fostered by the book, from whether Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married to the existence of the Priory of Sion, an organisation said to protect their bloodline.

Beyond The Da Vinci Codecontrasts the conventional view with Brown's alternate history and invites viewers to decide which version is more compelling.
