The Mystery Of Mary Magdalene

12noon, BBC1

Whether one regards the Bible as the dictation of God, or a collection of old fishermen's yarns which have got out of hand, Mary Magdalene is a crucial character: a witness to both the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. Melvyn Bragg marks Good Friday by trying to figure out who Mary Magdalene was, and reflecting on her portrayal across the centuries. Bragg has himself made a contribution to her mythology; he wrote the screenplay for the film of Jesus Christ Superstar. Andrew Mueller
