Another Easter Topic The Shroud of Turin


I wait with some anticipation for tonight's BBC 2 programme:
BBC Two examines the mystery of The Turin Shroud in a new documentary presented by Rageh Omaar. This year sees the 20th anniversary of the Carbon 14 dating of the Shroud of Turin that deemed the most famous relic in Christendom a fake. But since then, despite many attempts, no one has been able to determine who the forger was or how the forgery might have been done.

Shroud Of Turin – Material Evidence sets out to discover exactly what it is about the image on the Shroud that has defied imitation and explores new evidence that may challenge the Carbon 14 verdict.

With unique access to the Shroud itself and those closest to it, Rageh embarks on a journey of discovery that takes him to meet Dr John Jackson, the leader of the 1978 US investigation that was given access to the cloth; to Professor Christopher Ramsey of the Oxford Laboratory that did the original C14 test; to Jerusalem; and, of course, to Turin, where the production team was given permission to film the Shroud itself in High Definition for the first time. Read On..........
