After the vicar for St Mark's and St Martin's died, a new one had to be found - a task that was not at all straightforward. In this multiracial north London parish, the demands of the parishioners, the wishes of the local bishop and the thoughts of the trustees (a group of businessmen from the City of London) all had to be taken into account.
This programme follows the shortlisted candidates for the post through the selection process - which included an interview in front of 11 elders and a right of veto that rested with two parishioners - and discovers how a decision was reached.
