The Great Cathedrals of Britain In the Middle Ages Christianity filled people's lives and churches were the most important buildings in any community. They glorified not only God, but man, offering protection for all, ecclesiastical as well as lay, rich and poor.
Outstanding among churches are the cathedrals with their glorious sculpture, jewelled windows and magnificent architecture.
In a series of six programmes, Malcolm Billings and Tim Tatton-Brown tell the story of the development of British cathedrals from the arrival of St Augustine in 597 until the Reformation.
