One of our readers across the pond writes of the BBC series:
It concluded yesterday and I can say that it really was the finest and most interesting relgious programme I have seen in years.The series was more of a "fly on the wall" type documentary than a "reality tv
show".The concusion of the last programme was so powerful that it brought tears to my eyes.I hope you get the chance to se it in North America.It is a very powerful tool for evangelisation and shows much of the beauty and truth found in Catholicism.I have attached a link to a more detailed description of the series which you may find interesting.
I wrote to BBC America about showing the program. Here's the response:
Thank you for taking the time to bring this program to our attention.
Unfortunately, at this time, there are no plans to air "The Monastery"
on BBC America in the immediate future.
However, please know that BBC America takes the opinions of our viewers seriously. Rest assured we will forward your program request; as well as your comments, on to the appropriate department(s).
