At 9pm on Good Friday, BBC 3 will broadcast ‘Manchester Passion‘ live from the city centre. It’s a ‘contemporary retelling of the last hours of Jesus life told through the music of Manchester’.
I’m not exactly a big fan of religion (or Manchester pop bands), but you have to admire the BBC for taking a chance with something different like this and that alone makes it worth supporting. It’s being made by the same people as FlashMob the Opera — which I enjoyed.
Hopefully I’ll be there shooting some video to put up here next weekend.
