Praise Be - Christchurch Cathedral Special

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1998

The ritual of choral music, bell ringing, daily worship and welcoming visitors begun in 1881, continues today. Though the words we use might be different, the message remains the same.
– Graeme Thomson
One hundred and sixteen years of prayer and devotion. You can feel it in the very walls of the place.
– Very Rev John Bluck, Dean of Christchurch
Once, its spire commanded the skyline. Overlooked today by its highrise neighbours, it yet remains the pre-eminent symbol of this city.
– Graeme Thomson
