A series in three parts introduced by Bishop Richard Holloway
While church membership climbs in the African continent, western church membership is falling - the result, some say, of loss of nerve among church leaders in face of the modern secular world.
How far should the Church adapt itself to its culture? How does a bishop or a church know when and where to draw the line?
The Bishop of Edinburgh, the Rt Rev Richard Holloway, puts these questions to leading Anglican churchmen, including the Rt Rev David Jenkins, Bishop of Durham; the Rt Rev John Spong, Bishop of Newark, New Jersey; the Most Rev Brian Newton Davis, Primate and Archbishop of New Zealand; the Most Rev Khotso Makhulu, the Archbishop of the Province of Central Africa; and the Most Rev Robin Eames, Primate of All Ireland.
Lady Victoria Leatham takes time off from managing
Burghley House, the family stately home near Stamford in Lincolnshire, to visit Rockingham Castle near
Corby in Northamptonshire - one of the royal castles used by the kings of England to run the country. It is also where King John is supposed to have left his jewels. Today's owner
Michael Saunders Watson , a former commander in the Navy, and his wife Georgina are still looking for them. Historian Brian McNerney explains what life was like there in medieval days.
