The Warner formula was simple - to thrill audiences with stories torn straight from the headlines, and as such, Warner Studios became the home of the crime film.

    David Suchet sets out to establish what connects three of the world's major religions - and critically what divides them - as he travels the world on a personal pilgrimage of discovery. Judaism, Islam and Christianity share far more in common than the abhorrent acts of extremists would ever suggest. When the roots of the three Abrahamic faiths are shared, why is it that they foster dissent, intolerance and disagreement? What unites them and what divides them? Is God a warmonger or a peacemaker?
