Learning about religion can be the most formative experience of a child's life. But how do early encounters with faith affect children and influence the adults they become? Through personal stories of the fascination, humour and mundanity of faith, comedian Omid Djalili, novelists Sarah Dunant and Jenn Ashworth and journalists Abdul Rehman Malik and Emma Barnett describe their early memories of engaging with religion at home and school, the sense of community it provided but also the challenge and frustration they encountered during their teenage years.

Producer: Nija Dalal-Small.
