The second of a two-part investigation into Christianity in Britain today by Peter France.
As Bishops argue whether the traditional 'truths' of Christianity have to be taken literally, Peter France goes on a journey through Christian Britain. He looks at the strength, beauty - and oddities of the Christian tradition.
In this film he examines the powerful dissenting movements which have helped to shape modern Britain and asks influential Protestant leaders: 'What do I have to believe in order to come in?'
