The University of Aberdeen’s Department of Film and Visual Culture invite you to join us for the first Director’s Cut of 2009 with broadcaster and former Bishop of Edinburgh, Richard Holloway.

The event will take place at King’s College Chapel, King's College at 6pm. The event, which is co-hosted by the Research Institute of Irish and Scottish Studies at the University of Aberdeen, will be followed by a reception and book signing in the James MacKay Hall, hosted by Scottish Screen.

Richard Holloway's television series include 'Holloway's Road', 'When I Get to Heaven' and 'The Sword and the Cross'.

Holloway hosts the BBC Radio book review programme, 'Cover Stories', chairs the joint board of the Scottish Arts Council and Scottish Screen, and has written over 20 books, including 'Between the Monster and the Saint: reflections on the human condition' (2008). For this Director's Cut he will be interviewed by Professor John Swinton, Chair of Practical Theology at the University of Aberdeen. The discussion, which will be filmed and include a Q&A with the audience, will cover how religious ideas and moral issues are conveyed on television and the media, including faith in a post-Christian age, homosexuality and the Anglican church, and the moral problems we face in the current economic crisis.

The event is free, but make your booking on-line, as seats are going quickly at the event website.
