Twist of Faith 13×30 mins
Martin embarks on a world trekking assignment.
In China, he finds out how Islam survives and even resists the suspicions of the Communist government.
In Canada, he meets a rebellious group of Catholic Women demanding the right to priesthood who find themselves facing excommunication from the Vatican.
In Soweto, he discovers how the energies of a powerful clergyman can give pride and hope to thousands of unemployed AIDS sufferers.
Deep in the forests of Russia, he encounters “Jesus of Sibera” a religious leader with thousands of followers who have fled the chaos of Russian life.
In the USA, thousands seek out faith healing, as a way of coping with loneliness, stress and ill health that modern life can’t treat.
And in the filthy slums of Delhi, Martin accompanies a frail but powerful woman who is trying to save the Hindu Untouchable workers condemned by their low caste to a life of working in the poisonous and hazardous sewers of India.
