Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
The expansive mythology of author Dan Brown's wildly successful novel The Da Vinci Code is put under the spotlight as British actor/commentator Tony Robinson interviews a series of respected biblical experts in hopes of separating edge-of-your-seat fiction from the harsh reality of historical fact. Could it be that a highly guarded secret concerning Jesus Christ, Mary Magdaline, and the Holy Grail was discovered and subsequently hushed by a secretive sect of medieval warrior monks? Now, as a series of renowned experts including Biblical scholar Elaine Pagels, Holy Blood, Holy Grail author Michael Baigent, and Scotland's Rosslyn Chapel come together to compare notes on the history of this fascinating enigma, viewers will finally find out the compelling truth behind one of the new millennium's hottest fictional works.
