On 20 January, EWTN will be showing a one-hour documentary about pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, titled "Walsingham: England's Nazareth":
The latest one-hour documentary about Walsingham and pilgrimage was made by EWTN during 2007 and will be shown on its channels for the first time on Sunday January 20th.
"The Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham in Norfolk, England has been a place of pilgrimage since medieval times, when travel to Rome and Compostella was virtually impossible. Though destroyed during the Reformation, it was eventually restored, and is now England's National Shrine of Our Lady for both Roman Catholics and Anglicans. In this beautiful documentary especially made for EWTN, Joanna Bogle describes in detail the various stages of Walsingham's history and the special graces found in this holy place of pilgrimage."
The above description of the documentary comes from the Europe programme schedule - the descriptions on the UK and other countries' and continents' listings vary. There are different schedules for UK/Ireland and for Europe, but both can be received in the UK.
