And there's more to come. On Thursday (28th Feb) the Beeb are launching a special website to cover the film.
Users can explore a wealth of extra material, ask questions and contribute their own opinions and programme reviews.The press pack also happens to mention that Stephen Graham will be playing Barabbas. I mentioned this back in November, but I'd not heard anything about Graham's involvement since. In fact, I was beginning to wonder if the IMDb had got it wrong. Thankfully their information appears to be correct, so I can only imagine, therefore, that his part is fairly small.
Features include episode guides, video interviews with cast and crew, picture gallery and specially commissioned articles giving the background to the drama and the Passion itself.
The People's Passion tells the gospel story of the Passion in a wide variety of voices and accents from around the British Isles and beyond.
I get to see some of this for the first time on Thursday, and whilst I'll probably have to agree not to reveal key plot points or share my opinions on it until nearer its broadcast, I may be able to provide some more fresh information.
