Crusades. Series 1, episode 4.
Acclaimed war correspondent Rageh Omaar examines the legacy of the Crusades and the lasting impact on the relationship between Islam and the West. Recent remarks attributed to Osama bin Laden describing the Gaza conflict in terms of a Zionist-Crusade and encouraging jihad or "holy war" lend credence to Rageh's view that many Muslims see today's conflicts in the Middle East and beyond through the prism of the Crusades.
Reformation. Series 1, episode 5.
Ann Widdecombe, MP examines the turbulent years of the Reformation. Five centuries ago a vast religious revolution gripped Western Europe.

Dark Continents. Series 1, episode 6.
Actor, playwright and broadcaster Kwame Kwei-Armah argues that the worldwide success of Christianity - followed by a third of the global population and growing - has mushroomed as a result of one of the greatest revolutions in religious history. A revolution in which, he says, the peoples of Africa, Asia and Latin America seized the religion of their former colonial masters, transformed and adapted it and are now set to overturn the Christian world.
God And The Scientists. Series 1, episode 7.
Eminent scientist Colin Blakemore examines Christianity's relationship with science. He argues that science is the biggest challenge Christianity has ever faced, and questions whether the fundamental tension between the two can ever be resolved. Or will science eventually make religion redundant? Blakemore interviews esteemed scholars and Churchmen in order to understand how science continues to force Christians to re-evaluate the way they look at the world.
The Future of Christianity. Series 1, episode 8.
In the final episode of Christianity: A History, practising Catholic and leading barrister Cherie Blair considers the challenges facing the future of Christianity. She looks back over the last hundred years to see how Christianity has fared in the face of two World Wars and monumental social change.
