"I have. I've always said that john carpenter's halloween. The original one released today except for like very brief nudity would just be a pg thirteen. There's there's very little violent. It's all suggested it's all scream Murder on the orient express the The murder murray Express is more horrifying than anything in the movie. Halloween in terms of sustained violence and the angle he shoots at. It's so disturbing. When did you encounter this pattern. This was this came out when you were results. I assume this was i forget. Might've been in college or something but there was just something about this. 'cause i'm very ocd. So that i'm very this kind of. Ocd guy just kind of in his own little world accurate poirot and he has to like not only does he have to like put this mickey kind kinda put together spitefully because at the end. Yesterday's actually. This murder was done for good reasons. And i can't actually arrest. Who did it. And he asked to make this bigger moral choice which is again foreshadows these massive moral choices or that world was about to be put through right very weird way So there was just something. It just hit me. It hit me at the right. Goddamn time and also sidney lumet. He's just an amazing filmmaker. He's amazing with images they pull you in He's amazing directing actor so that you're just constantly can't keep your eye off the screen. I just love it. You alluded to a bit. And you mentioned some of the actors. But this is one of those classic seventies like ensembles that at that. Oh i think you would also where you're saying it's kind of the last gasp of of an old world not potentially the acting too. It's like richard win mark and then but then it's like michael york. These different generations kind of colliding ingrid burr. yeah feel-good but then anthony perkins martin balsam lake. These great character actors. Sean connery by the way us. Also i mean just the fact that there's so many things going on in terms of they wanted ingrid bergman to play the Lauren bacall part she goes no. I wanna play the kind of mentally disabled nurse rights. You want an oscar for it today. Richard mark who basically this. How cool ritu with. Mark was he goes. I took the role. Because i just wanted to meet all these actors. I'm such a fan of all of them. So like the fact that a guy of that stature richard marku such an icon especially like filmed warr and everything. But he's still a fan of the movies like i get to meet. Sean connery loved talk. So that was really you know. And then in the middle of an albert finney justice absolute powerhouse. And it's show brilliant you've got twelve of the world's actually fourteen of the world's best actors and they end the whole last twenty minutes. They can't speak while he goes on to. There's real tension in that room of like. How fucking long do i have to sit here and you know how what it takes to make a move. That must've an days if not weeks to get all those angles and so. The tension is just excruciating. When you watch that final scene somebody some the greatest mustache work. I would say in any way how not only poirot by the and faro's iconic moustache is one thing but you got connor martin balsam rocking like pencil. Thin job On you all around and that should not be ignored and connery is being such an anti james bond. Just stuffy racist. He makes he. Does that joke about i was i was. I was yawning with with young. What's his name. He thought that the british should leave it. Can you believe that like he plays a country goes. Can you believe this indian gandhi. I mean come on so but but you're supposed to sympathize with him. It's oh god it's so fucking good. So where do you come down on the twenty seventeen recent remake of braun who somebody that. I respect a law. A lot of his films. Did it just not work for you. And why yeah. It just was too many. They added all this personal back story. Diplo which you don't need all the all. The character work you need of borrow. Is the way that our tiny his face before. He finally walks down that hallway at the end when he's made the decision that he's made and he looks at how everyone else's reacting but he realizes it's very much like john wayne and the searchers or jimmy stewart at the end of call northside seven seven seven. I've helped to bring some justice in the world. But i'm also not a part of it personally like there's something removed and my diminish because of that and that's all you need. You don't need all his picture of the woman then it gets broken. The guy's got damn so you know there is something very frustrating about watching it also. I thought that the the the when when the david suchet poirot series did their version of it. They did an amazing version of it. And had perot do some kind of make some surprising decisions without without ruining the faith of the original text he really They did some really cool and actually did way more realistic of what. It's like to be a train trapped in a snowdrift and you have to actually packard one in the same room or they all freeze to death and so that was really interesting. Yeah in the bronco. One just did and i love kenneth braun that his a. Why can't i think of the name that he doesn't amazing. Police series the swedish one. A wonder oh. My god is so good one of my favorites of his debt again. Very early against brilliant and also. I just quad row has to he really. I will give him this. He does nail the i m. Ocd to a fault.

And then we're so happy to make available a new resource for the holiday called the Jesus storybook Bible a Christmas collection by Sally lloyd-jones. It's actually here with Pastor Greg and me today along with Pastor Grace wife Cathy Cathy Sally. I think that wage When we speak to our children or till our children Bible stories, we're so careful to not admit our own fears our own shortcomings and what I love about your storage box that you're very real and honest with children, you're not shielding them from some of the gentle realities that they need to begin to be talked to about that. There are things that go wrong that there are times when we are afraid how do you take those difficult times in a child's life and address them through your stories based on what the Bible is John you? I yes, I think that's so right. You don't hide the fact that sad things happen and you know children right now, we'll have experience sad things happening losing grandparents or who who knows that's true. So they know and children know from a very early age that not everything is right with the world. And so unless we tell them the truth, they can't trust us. So I think that just to encourage that obviously we would we have to say it in age-appropriate ways. But if we can process scary things with children while they're on our laps, then they can have their feelings while we're them in a safe place and that will just prepare them and equip them cuz I think the main thing is when yes, we protect children, but we also have to get them ready. So I think this year perhaps the telling of the truck is yes, everything is not all right with the world, but our headlines don't come from the news they come from this story, which is the story underneath all the stories and it's about how long Who is still in charge even though everything looks completely out of control? He's not and he has a good plan. And I think it's just declaring the truth. Wow, the great insights from Salvage Jones everybody who you're listening to right now and and she's the so prolific author of children's books and most notably the Jesus storybook Bible.

"Then it also reminds me Miles when I think about the situation of the replica of David in front of the old palace the fact that the renaissance was a great cultural thing but it wasn't for the Commoner. So much was up in the higher floors of the palace there with the windows just out of stones throw reach and I believe that the story is. They're having a riot and people broke into the palace. And the through furniture out the window at actually knocked off. Part of the Statue Michelangelo's precious David and they realized they needed to put David safely off the street and into a gallery. Is that your understanding of it? Well that happened actually years later it was damaged and interestingly enough the great art historian and sort of disciple of Michelangelo Save the arm and preserved it until after the riots were over and then we attached it but it did stand out there for a couple of centuries more before it was brought in I think in the nineteenth and to preserve from the mostly from the weather revolution and other other damage. When you see that the David today you see almost like it's an church like it's the altar of humanism under this amazing Dome Well it's really been transformed from a and this is the way art often goes art particularly it's made for a particular political or religious purpose. It's often nowadays. We're used to seeing things in museums. Or they're SORTA sanitized and separated. We look at them as aesthetic objects first and foremost and this is certainly one way to look at them. But I think it's also important to understand the way. They functioned within society at the time as propaganda as patriotic or religious symbol. They were not sort of separated from life the way they are now in the kind of climate controlled atmosphere of the museum. You know I think that is so important to understand the context and who paid for it and why. What was the agenda? Because this art took a lot of money and people hadn't agenda and in so many cases like David had a a real purpose miles Jay unger explores how Michaelangelo redefined what it meant to be an artist and why his works are among the highest achievements of Western civilization in his book called Michelangelo. A life in six masterpieces unders earlier works. On Renaissance. Italy are about Machiavelli and Lorenzo de Medici. His website is miles. Jay UNGER DOT COM. Well let's talk about the PGA. There's three or four Michelangelo Pietas Beautiful. Of course the most famous one is in Saint Peter's but a beautiful peter is in the Museum of the Walmart of the Cathedral just behind the cathedral and that's one of the highlights in one of the less appreciated masterpieces by Michelangelo. I would say yeah. It's partly because it was never finished. In fact he wanted to destroy himself. This was the statue that was meant for. He meant for his own tomb but he was working on it late in life. And it was a very complex figure grouping with four figures including his own self portrait as Nicodemus. Who brings the body down from the cross but he really had a hard time with that he at one point he smashed the. It's the right leg of Christ in anger because he couldn't get it right and he wanted to throw it out in frustration anger of but fortunately was preserved and it is a very moving both the unfinished self portrait as Nicodemus. Plus the the body of crisis one of the most wonderful passages and all sculpture But it is an incomplete in probably uncompleted sculpture which is why he himself was so furious and frustrated by its execution. I find it so touching because I'm looking at that portrait that face of nicodemo which is actually the very old. Michelangelo looking down at one of his last major pieces of art in. And you have this beautiful piece below him and Michaelangelo as naked. Mrs Looking down over it and then maybe cap your visit to Florence with Michelangelo theme by going to the Santa Croce Church. Because there you will find Michelangelo's tomb surrounded by all the other Great Florentine big names of the renaissance and it is quite a reminder that this was a time of great energy and things coming together a perfect storm of creativity and artistic wonder. What do you see when you go into Santa Croce Miles? I Love Santa Croce. It's one of my favorite churches in Florence. I love the square outside Santa Croce as will But it was used as the MEDICI for longtime tried to make it into Pantheon of Florentine Greatness Machiavelli is buried there as well. It was also the church that was the one of the sort of parish. Church was right in their neighborhood. It was the one that Michelangelo himself felt most closely tied. But it really gives you a sense of the kind of constellation of genius was created in a city that in Michelangelo's time was no more than fifty thousand maximum people but you know the number of great artists and poets and philosophers. That came out of there is true. I think the only city that I think in history that could rival that record would be Athens in the fifth century. Bc It was just one of these moments where everything came together and you really see in the merger Santa Croce so there in Santa Croce. You've got really that celebration of all the greatness that came together that perfect storm of creativity and genius and civic pride that put Florence on the map miles. Jay Unger thank you for writing. Michaelangelo a life in six masterpieces. And thanks for giving us a better understanding of how we can enjoy the brilliance of Michelangelo. Next time we go to Florence. Thank you Cameron. Hewitt is senior researcher. At Rick Steves Europe and he joins US ON TRAVEL WITH RICK. Steves from time to time. Last year Cameron stayed at a farmhouse agritourism allowed in the Italian countryside. Tuscany but he didn't have to worry about getting bored. He files this report for us. One of the activities guests are invited to join in on making homemade pasta. The old fashioned way a Tuscan agritourism. Oh tourist farm really puts you in touch with local traditions. I'm staying at a farmhouse that purchase on a Ridge just outside of Piacenza as the sun sets it casts warm orange light on vibrant greenfield in the glass in Verandah a dozen American travelers huddled around a table. Our hosts are about to show us how to turn a few bags of flour and some eggs into a traditional Tuscan feast. Hi I'm Cameron Hewitt. It's Thursday night and here at Crayola agritourism. Oh Thursday night is pasta making night a few years. Back City slicker Isabella. Mary Country Boy Carlo. They turned his family farm into an agritourism. Oh and today. They fill their guests. Weeklong stays with vivid experiences. Everyone's favorite activity is learning how to make a traditional noodle called Peachy Isabella and her right hand woman. Carlotta stand over an oversized cutting board and address the group on a record we need to clean that toward perfectly from August. Now rests okay but like the bumps and we don't want we reduce the roughnecks here okay so first Carlotta dumps out four bags of flour. Dredges out crater turning your mountain into a volcano. They crack seven eggs into their powdery reservoir. The KIDS HELP. Leeson okay now that it changes the sound here and couldn't inside okay. Okay now we try another one. They beat the eggs with a fork and speak in a few drops of water slowly. They pull in more and more flour from the lip of the crater and gradually the EGGY goo turns into a hunk of sticky dough. We with the thing that you lifted up you wrote it back a little bit and the hand heels gently push forward than the thing. Tips Roll it back. Peachy is a peasant's noodles. It's not neatly extruded from a metal tube. It's rustic and hand-rolled here's the technique you cut off a hunk cadeau. Hold it in your left hand and use your right hand to roll a little tale from the DOE against the cutting board. It's trickier than it. Sounds too little pressure and you get thick ropes too much pressure and it breaks into bits but if you do it just right you get a noodle shape like a three foot long earthworm. While everyone's making noodles. I had outside to find Carlo at the grill. We're his ribs and pork sausages sizzle. According the Choir Chai only evil chip sausage in the Little Garden shed nearby Isabella poorest three generous handfuls of salt into twenty gallons of boiling water. Then she drops in the handfuls of the noodles squirm around the bubbles like miniature heels so when it really starts to. Falmer from that point we wait another minute now. Begins to see what happens in a few seconds and in just a few minutes. It's done cooking is Bella tosses the peachy with some meat ragout. She's been simmering all day long and everybody gathers on the Veranda and we all dig into our hard earned feast the peachy our firm but tender. Each noodle clings to just the right amount of sauce. Just like it was designed to do. Is I enjoy my favorite meal of the trip. It dawns on me here in Tuscany. Traditional ways still really are the best ways.

"By breathing human sensibility into the religious themes of his sculptures and rescues. We'll explore how his hometown of Florence is the ideal base for you to enter into the world of Michaelangelo next on travel with Rick. Steves when you get to see one of Michelangelo's masterpieces in person could be his frescoes in the Sistine Chapel or his famous statues of David. Or you're seeing works of art. That are not only beautiful. Their revolutionary in the height of the Italian Renaissance Michelangelo Buonarroti of Florence added a humanistic sensibility to the religious art. That he was commissioned to create he fought with his patrons to create. What his inner. Musa Michelangelo left us. A legacy. That touches the deepest cords of the human spirit. Five hundred years later miles. Jay Unger spent five years in Florence in preparation for Writing Michelangelo. A life in six masterpieces. He joins US now on travel with Rick Steves to tell us how Florence is an ideal place to understand Michelangelo. That's because Florence retains much of the character that framed Michelangelo's World Miles. Thanks for joining us. Pleasure you know something striking and something you mentioned in your book Michelangelo a life and six masterpieces is how Florence today to a large extent. Feels like Florence in Michelangelo's time five hundred years ago how so it's Been preserved very well in part because it. Shortly after Michelangelo's death it sort of slid into irrelevance. It was a nation state city state on the decline and so it did not have the great post Michaelangelo building boom that Rome had to with all those wonderful baroque churches and palaces So it in a way. It's was a city frozen in time and today when you visit to Florence you can walk within. What were the city walls Very easy walk. You can cover so many dimensions of Michelangelo's career. If you were to be our tour guide and design of visit in Florence to just pick up on the genius in the wonder of Michelangelo. How would you structure it? Where would you go? I think the place to start is the cousin of one or not which was a property. He purchased himself. It's not where he grew up. And it's one of the palaces. He purchased as soon as he had some money there. They had some of his earliest works. Particularly the battle of the centers and the Madonna of the stairs which are his two earliest sculptures. So I think that's a good place to start. It wasn't necessarily his boyhood home. It's treated like the House of the Bonar. Ot family if there is a Michelangelo Museum in town that would be it a nearby center. Perito and Central Spree tow is seems like another church but it has actually some of his work. Insitute doesn't it it has it has a crucifixion. Though I have to say that this is disputed not everyone believes this is a genuine Michelangelo Most scholars do button. Most people think it was a work. He did as a young man after he did a number of dissections in the church there in the mortgage and in gratitude for allowing him to do this which was not really considered a kosher back in those days He carved this nude Christ for the Church. Which is still there in an hangs on across to this day. Five hundred years later and that's a good point. Michelangelo had that Renaissance Appetite and curiosity for understanding. What's under the skin and it was very dicey to be dissecting corpses and If you had good connections in the church you could probably have access to some corpses and that let Michelangelo do his research and it shows in his art I would say. I think it's exciting to see a Michelangelo. Actually not in a museum but in the original place it was intended to be artistic term for that. I think is in C two and a beautiful thing about the crucifix in Santos Burrito is. It's that slender less muscular. Michelangelo that you see in his early years and later on. He got into more massive and big bodied work. The bargello the former prison in Florence is a tube statues. What the Uffizi is to painting? Isn't it was one of the great collections of renaissance particularly early Renaissance Sculpture? And you WANNA see the sculptures of David that Michelangelo was looking at when he sculptured his own. David there a couple of wonderful ones the DONATELLO's there wonderful bronze Donatello David and the video David as well but In terms of Michelangelo's the most important works. There are the early bacchus which was the first working in in Rome and again not the kind of over muscled figuring that you expect to Michelangelo and also one of the early release. He did of the mother and child the Piton. Does there as well. So that would be on your list. The bargello and you mentioned something really that I hadn't even thought of miles petit appreciate Michelangelo. Appreciate the art that inspired him in the Bargello. You could see those earlier. David's by Barocco and Donatello was Michelangelo actually inspired by those masterpieces. He was very inspired by Donatello. In particular who know Florentine sculptor could sort of escape the legacy donatello but I think he was. He wanted to do something very different. His is a much more monumental figure. It takes a different point in the story. It takes the the point before. David has defeated Goliath. So he's looking at. Donatella but I think he's trying to do something very different. Any certainly did you can almost psychoanalyze the tenor of the age by looking at the treatment of David from one generation to the next of course. Michelangelo is a renaissance genius in almost by definition. That means you are a master of different media. And he was a architect he was a sculptor and a painter. And if you WANNA see I think the only painting I've ever seen by Michelangelo's in New Jersey. Yeah it's the only painting on panel if you don't include the great frescoes of course right In the Sistine Chapel and the last judgment it's the only panel painting and described it. He famously did not like painting. And even though his trained as a painter in gear on dial studio he kept saying. Oh it's not my art and trying to beg off various projects but he was as you can see if you look at the holy family of highly skilled and trained painter. But when you look at the holy family you feel like his heart is in sculpture because the figures he painted have that sculptural kind of depth. Don't they they do Unlike his great rival and the person who was looking at when he was painting this he was looked. Definitely looking at Leonardo Davinci's a wonderful family groupings and trying to compete with them but whereas Leonardo's painting these soft misty his famous snow motto. Everything in the holy family. Is You know as if lit by Clegg Lights just harsh bright light and I always think it's interesting that when all this controversy happens a couple of decades ago about cleaning the Sistine Chapel and people saying Oh we'll all the you know if you clean it off it's way too garish. I was thinking to myself. What just look at the holy family in the feats the and look how how Garish. These colors are bright. And you know these lines marines and purples are very much the colors that popped out after. The Sistine ceiling was clean. This has traveled. Steve's for talking with Miles Jay Unger Miles is book. Is Michelangelo a life in six masterpieces and were traveling through Florence right now dropping into all the sites that have Michelangelo masterpieces and of course people go to Foreign David. David originally was positioned outside of the City government building on the DILLARD's in your area and it ended up a replica there and the original nearby in the academia gallery. Talk for a minute please. Miles about the Piazza della senior and how that relates to Michelangelo. The Piazza del senior year and the Palazzo behind were the seat of the Florentine government and Florence at this time was a separate nation. State with a proud centuries-old history but it was beleaguered on all sides by much larger foes who wanted to swallow it up and the David was sculpted as he patriotic symbol and it was placed in the center civic center of Florence it had actually originally been commissioned to stand on top of the Tribune of the Cathedral but the city fathers quickly realized it would be much more effective as a patriotic symbol. If it sat there in the Civic Square so today you can see a very good copy of the David standing where stood for many centuries and then One can go on to see the original in the Academia Museum a few blocks away where you see this sort of exquisite art of the original the subtlety of the carving the beauty of the surfaces. But you need to keep both aspects of the sculpture in mind both the sort of profanity and as a work of art but also as a kind of civic patriotic symbol..

"Radio sex net. Rick Steves Dot Com in your travels. David you talked a lot about these house. Churches and understand before there were like legal churches when when Christianity was still under the radar people would gather in people's homes. They would have house churches. I can envision somebody saying hey we have a letter from Paul. That's all gathered together in the house. Church and some leader would would read it. Is that the sense you got in your travels. Yes absolutely the house. Churches were the beginning of the church. The first church if you like main big building that was known as a church was when the group of people followers of the way became known rather derogatorily as Christians was in a in a big building in Antioch in Turkey before then it was literally house churches and pour hot to send letters to these people because they were getting it all wrong when people meant to have the what we call the Eucharist or the communion of the wine and the bread to celebrate. Jesus they will turn into a dinner party and people will get drunk and things like that. So he had to he have to SORTA keep people on the straight and narrow by his letters and they and that's why they're so full of great great instruction. So how you read these letters today if you're respecting the New Testament to to read it like you said as if it's being read to you and with the sense that Paul is trying to keep the young church from derailing and keep it on track and true to message yes. I think that's so important. I would recommend to everybody listening if you read any letter in the New Testament or indeed any historical letters to fully understand it. Put Your name at the top Dea Rick. We're talking about traveling in the footsteps of Paul and going to emphasis must have really been a good place to make the whole story of Palm Vivid with what happened Ephesus. Well Paul into emphasis which was a great pagan the city. I mean this man was brave. And they were all worshiping the goddess optimus. He would preach two hundred some people about Jesus and he became a huge threat to the autism fans who were making images of the goddess Artemis. And they really try to get rid of him. In fact they did get rid of him and then the Andy how to leave. All these pagans were buying these little statuettes in order to it was a big business and Paul comes in. Says you don't need to buy these little idols. You'd I need anything. So He's Jesus is in your Jesus is in your heart. This is bad business with the Fijians. But you know what was wonderful is just outside ethicists. Today there is the famous cave of some of the grotto of some Paul and it has to be unlocked. You'll need a torch but inside is one of the earliest depictions of Saint Paul and actually funnily enough when we got in there. We were very very privileged to film. And I put my face next to the image of some Paul and I said to the camera. Hey we we look. We look very similar. I remember we had seen in your show and it really. There was a physical resemblance between fresco there in the cave above episode by the way when you were talking about house churches a in the fourth century. If you're anybody is going to Capito Chea in Gorham G. O. R. E. M. E. Wonderful Small Cave churches which are just extraordinary as well where people worshiped in these caves. Little caves the earliest form of formal worship. That we know David Suchet. It is such a delight talking with you. I know that you we've found that fresco in the cave at emphasis that had a resemblance between Paul. You also wrote that you'd you'd enjoy portraying the sometime as an actor that rule Happening any I think and I think by my time of life now. I think that has passed me by. I feel so very privileged to have been given the chance to have made the program unsympathetic find out about him as a man and the same with some pizza. What a gift for an actor and a Christian David Suchet thank you so much for joining us and best wishes with your work thank you. It's been such a pleasure. Rick in just a minute. We explore the world of the high renaissance in Italy. Michelangelo transformed the way we see our world.

"Slow am where the Old Testament took. Place these historical places. Rather than if you like the great pilgrim tourist trap. I like to go to places where I can. Just sit and meditate. I like to go outside of Jerusalem in the Wilderness the Kidron valley and down to Jericho and you can see where the the parable of the Good Samaritan actually occurred. And you can go outside and see where Jesus was baptized in the Jordan. These for me touch the heart as much for the Old Testament as for the new testament because we have to remember continually when discussing Paul discussing. Peter Discussing Jesus. They were Jews. They were not Christian David physically walking as Paul. Did people estimate he covered ten thousand miles on foot. When you say the footsteps of Paul for the name of your documentary. It is literally the footsteps of Paul on these ancient stone roads. What were the roads like? And what was it like to walk these roads as you did when you made this special one of the most exciting moments of the series on pole with when I found myself on the way realizing that the stones beneath my feet had not changed in two thousand years and I could have been standing on his very footsteps and when I realized that I got such a tingle up my spun amazed and then realizing of course the hey now you have to walk all those miles.

I mean how they did it how they would driven or they would driven because it was that important to them and we should mention to our listeners. David you can ride a bicycle out of Rome for half an hour and find yourself on the way the AP way and those jobs are right there. Some of the best stretch of ancient roads. I've ever walked is just outside of the city of Roman just outside the city of Roman. I would recommend it to everybody who wants to touch that history. Two thousand years ago. It's there you can walk it now. It's interesting to think about the infrastructure of Rome. Two thousand years. If you ever wanted to start a religion about the time of Christ would be the perfect time to do it because that was the beginning of the POX Romana and for two hundred years. You've got general peace and stability in a better road service than anywhere just like the United States built our interstate system. Just like Hitler built his autobahns. Rome built all these roads so they could lace their impair together and defend it more efficiently and of course we have one language of educated people. Well Greek or Latin. Let's talk just a minute about these letters. Because Paul really was moving the word of God the word of Jesus around with these letters and we think of the city of Ephesus. It would be a letter to the. Athenians the Philippine Philippines Thessaloniki. Thesselonians Corinth Corinthians. Talk a little bit about how? These letters worked. And how Paul was a master with this new technology of letter writing. Well I call it the first use of the what we now call the internet or the email. I mean he was able because of the road because of the network of roads he was able to send these letters to these groups of struggling Christians. All over the place. All the places that you've just kindly mentioned these were letters that were meant to be read out loud and forget that most of the little group of who became. Christians later for probably illiterate. Anyway said these were letters. Were to be read out loud and they would take some time to get to where they they have to go that destination but there were as you say highways and roads to make this possible. And in that sense you're right. It couldn't have happened at a better time because of the way that Rome had these network of roads. Our guest is actor David Suchet. He's a major figure in London theater. And maybe best known in America for the twenty-five years he spent as the star of Agatha Christie's progress on TV David also produced a follow up BBC travel series in the footsteps of Saint Peter and he narrates a documentary about the Protestant reformation that you can see occasionally on your public television station. You'll find links to his specials with this week show in the.

And the Turtle Lake. It's beautiful it's a very very close to Bilbao. It's a lot of will go to Bilbao when we visit this. Spanish part of best country and near Bilbao is the town of Loyola. And if you WANNA make your pilgrimage to Saint Ignatius that's what you have to do any good Jesuit. Well we get out of. This is going to implode because he was wounded there to Yola to Barcelona because he left his support to the footsteps of Ignatius itinerary. Well this is an initial route. The Ignatius route all right. There's so many ways to incorporate all of this Rich Catholic heritage into your sight seeing in Spain. This travel with Rick Steves. We've been discussing the importance of saints in Spain. And we've been joined by Hori remond and Francisco Cloudy Francisco brassiness coming up on travel with Rick. Steves we'll look at how you can get in touch with the genius of Michelangelo in his hometown of Florence and we'll sample a night of making homemade pasta in Tuscany. That's in just a bit. But I actor David. Suchet tells us what he learned about the first century world of Saint Paul. David filmed a travel documentary. Replacing Paul's extensive travels from the Middle East and Asia minor to Rome and he shares how the apostles words inform his own faith today. Happy Easter it's travel with. Rick Steves his travels in the Mediterranean world of the first century helped transform a small Jewish sect into one of the most powerful religions on earth. British actor David. Suchet was eager to learn about the world that Saint Paul encountered in the Eastern Mediterranean. And the places that inspired the famous letters. He wrote to the fledgling churches of that region. Reading Paul's letter to the Romans Changed David's own beliefs and his outlook on life. So a couple of years before he wrapped up the Agatha Christie pro TV series. David hosted a BBC documentary called in the footsteps of Saint Paul in it. He retraces Paul's route across the Roman Empire from Turkey to Israel Cyprus Greece Malta. Eventually does seat of the empire itself the city of Rome his special on Saint Paul airs from time to time on public. Tv in the US and it's featured video download from Acorn TV. David Suchet joins US now on travel. With Rick Steves to tell us why it was important for him to investigate the life and travels of Saint Paul David. It's great to have you with us. It's nice to be with Ring David. You were raised. I understand a secular Jew in London. He stumbled upon a Bible as you were traveling in the United States. Actually and you've done a BBC special that I just watched about the footsteps of Saint. Paul that is just so intimate and takes us right there. Tell us a little extra on how you came to do this. Project on the Apostle Paul well in a nutshell. I was converted to Christianity by polls letter that he wrote to the Group. Oof Christians in Rome so in the New Testament. You'll find the letter Paul to the Romans and by the time I'd finished thought letter that I imagine to be written to me because that's how I look at a classical plays if they I. I imagine that comes fresh through my letterbox. And if I'm reading a letter like Paul then it'll be written to me so I can take it very seriously and personally by the end of reading that letter of poll to the Group of Romans Christians in Rome especially in the last few chapters. I had found a world view that I'd been searching for all my life now. In nineteen eighty six which was the data my conversion. I was fourteen so I'd be looking for quite some time. And as I said it gave me a world view in the world of Christianity is very simple and the hardest to follow which is love your God and love your neighbor as yourself. Love God and love your neighbor. So you set out to retrace the footsteps of the Apostle Paul. I sat out once. The BBC had agreed to let me do it. I set out to find out who this mind was that. Actually League taught me this world view through his letter and I discovered one of the most fascinating and energetic man in history you call him the greatest international ambassador of Christianity. Give us a sense. What impact he had on the spread of Christianity. Well Jesus died on the Cross. Christians believe that he resurrected and ascended into heaven leaving a Little Group of bewildered disciples of his followers of his on the ground. They were Jewish. They were all Jewish. Jesus was a Jew and they wanted to continue believing in what Jesus taught and the Jewish authorities were very much against them. They were like a breakaway group. That had grown during the Ministry of Jesus Christ on one of the greatest men from the Jewish synagogue. Cold Seoul was their greatest persecutor. And in fact he was on the way to Damascus when he saw a blinding light and heard Jesus talking to him and it said sold soul. Why are you still persecuting me? This is the man who was so against this little group who following in the way of Jesus this is the man the became Saint Pol and he was the man who took the faith of Christianity. Outside of the Middle East outside of Israel. He was the first person to cross the water and take it to Europe and without polls three travels three journeys huge journeys that ended up in Rome Christianity. I don't believe would have ever left. Israel seems like Paul was a big personality and Regardless of which team he was on I mean I. He was a avid persecutor of Christians and suddenly he becomes the greatest ambassador of Christians quite different from Peter. I mean you you did a show on Peter and you did a show on Paul having done. Both of those shows the footsteps of Peter in the footsteps of Paul. How do you distinguish the two men Well they're both leaders in their own right because they both had a commission. Paul actually had a commission from Jesus to go out and preach and to move the Christian faith to the gentile world I e he was meant to take it outside of the Jewish faith and to give it to the gentile Peter however was to continue to take it to the Jewish people which very few would accept Christ. Poll never ever believed that he was wrong. He was a very proud mom. I said in my series. He's a man that I don't know if I'd have. Well he would have been a man. I would love to have had dinner with but I don't know if got through to the desert I think I might have. I might have left halfway through. He he was going to be a very tricky dinner companion however pizza and Paul was a great intellectual. Peter however was a simple fisherman right. Peter had quite a an enterprise game because he had a fishing business with two other fishermen had a nice little business there in Galilee but meeting. Jesus changed his life. The thing about Peter is that Peter Always blessed got it wrong. He's the disciple that when Jesus was being tried and he was in the courtyard outside and somebody said to him. Aunt you one of the followers of this man Jesus. He denied him. He denied being a following three times. He LET CHRIST DOWN. The thing about pizza for all of us is that he allows every one of us to fail and yet still beloved. And I think that's one of the greatest differences between Paul and Peter. Peter was if you like more like you've made the ordinary man and woman. In the St Paul was driven. He was a almost a religious fanatic but without polls fanaticism without his energy without his drive. We don't know where Christianity would be. We know what happened to Peter by the way. Obviously the Catholic Church believes that he ended up in Rome That he was buried in Rome. Hence you have the Vatican in Rome but it's not actually a one hundred percent. The Peter Actually got to Rome David. Suchet is our special guest right now on travel with Rick Steves. He's an accomplished stage and screen actor best known in the United States for his portrayal of inspector parole for many years on the Agatha Christie mystery series. Poirot we're talking to him about the documentaries filmed in the footsteps of Saint Paul David. It seems like the travelling you did really complemented your fascination and your admiration for Paul. Let's talk about a few places that we could actually go physically to get a better appreciation of Paul. First of all as you mentioned. He went beyond Jerusalem before we leave Jerusalem one evocative spot you really feel biblical times in Jerusalem well in Jerusalem itself. I can't give you one spot. Although obviously I will go to the Church of the holy sepulcher where Jesus is said to have been crucified. And where he was buried is actually located in the church itself. Obviously that's a very holy place but once again it's full of pilgrims and it's so crowded you can hardly find a place to sit quietly and meditate but that's an extraordinary place. I like to actually walk in the old markets in Jerusalem and down by the Old City of David. Down by the pool of.

"Teaches us anything. It's that we're all in this together. And it's important to get to know our neighbors Michelangelo's backstory can make his masterpieces come to life.

Michelangelo lived in influence. Five hundred years ago and actor. David Suchet tells us how he retraced the route that Saint Paul traveled through the eastern Roman Empire. Nearly two thousand years ago. Let's start the hour with a look at how people in Spain honor the lives of important figures from their past. There are actually hundreds of national and regional saints in Spain. And you'll find that many of them get a festival that brings their communities out into the streets to celebrate to explain the role of Saint in the culture of Spain. We're joined now by tour guides or hate Roman from Madrid and Francisco Gloria from pump. Lona or Hey in Francisco. Happy Easter Thank. You thank you so. Spain is a Catholic country in in the church is a huge part of the political and spiritual past. To what extent is the Catholic Church? Still a big part of Spanish society. Today it is. I mean now. The government that we have now is very conservative and they relates a political issues with the church. Not Everybody is happy about that but still part of it and also the most of the celebrations in Spain national holidays. They advocated saints. Lady's name names. I think a lot how. How does the naming of children work compared to the Catholic faith? I mean you're or hey your Cisco do they have any with your parents. Passion for Saints a Whole Mike. As many Ms Francis Xavier because your middle name is executive because for some frantic savior was born in my town so and he was the first Jesuit Right. He was one of the founders of Jesuits Yep okay main signatures which is a very common name. Ignatius and Francisco Xavier. That's a common name where you come from pump loan and actually my name is the ACLU into English degeorge and is the only saint in the Catholic Church actually wasn't a saint also warrior that killed the Dragon Saint George killing the Dragon. Yeah it wasn't saying actually but so there are a lot of festivals when you travel in and almost all of them seem to be related to the church. Talk about a couple of the the great festivals in the Saints Days. That are important in your life in your travels Francisco I am from component the running of the Bulls on what we celebrate. The death of Seinfeld mean so. It's like huge huge celebration. That week starts July six hundred ends July fourteenth saint for me and I. You wouldn't even know who saint for me unless you went to. The running of the Bulls and pump. Lana developed comes from employees. They don't even know who he is attacked because everybody wears the red Kerchief around their neck and when people go to the running of the Bulls they wear this red neckerchiefs symbolism planet. We are under two hundred thousand people. I didn't know we. We welcome one million people and everybody's wearing white unread and nobody knows why like. Excuse me you do get excuse me. I'M A tour guide. I want to explain to you why. You're wearing this red handkerchief. That was the first person that was baptized employees and they cut his head for the recent. So what we represent the white outfit Represents Holiness and the Redmond nights the blood coming out of his neck so he was an early Christian. Pump Loner who was beheaded. Yes he was. We hit it. We say that he was beheaded any Pamplona although history tells us that he was beheaded in France. But Hey ho hey. From Madrid what festivals would impact a traveler when that we should know about quite Madrid? Not Maniacs you say but there is one very close which is Toledo the Corpus Christi is the big the there in Corpus Christi in Toledo is and that's the the corporate the body the body of Christ that's correct. Yeah and that's the Big Day in Toledo and they do bring some things to parade around. And he's part of a could be the equivalent of the beaches. Pelton SPAIN LIKELY. You have here states them. They're very conservative in there. That's interesting because in the United States We've got a region called the Bible Belt in Spain. Is there a region that would be the Bible belt get could be the political? Be One of them if you go around. Let's say like half Mouche from Madrid to the West from Madrid to the West Toledo Arbella. Salunke that part of your Browning what do you? What is your image of being? We'll have to think that we had the Muslim heritage Muslim heritage started to come down of it from the north down. Thanks Community Santos on James. Drake has just for the historic context. The Muslims came in and took over Spain and Portugal in from the eighth century until fourteen. Ninety two a good part of Spain was ruled by Muslim overlords. And then for centuries there was the RECON keystone reconquering has finally fourteen ninety two. The last Muslim was pushed out of Granada and back into Africa. What I make the difference that the Community Santiago okay. The origin was by the coast and it was the beginning of the Spanish reconquista. So this is the Camino Santiago. This is the big pilgrimage trail that cuts across from France all the way across north Spain the major city in the north west of Spain Santiago de Compostela. They'll go and How what's the historical roots for this pilgrimage? Because thousands and thousands of people make this high out there still do it people at the beginning they did it by the coast so those kingdoms those ancient kingdoms there the realize that whatever was going there were no Muslims so th would they decided to push it south and south and south and south until the Camino we know today so I am from the north in the north we barely have any Muslim heritage. We were more Christine. Must time before. But if you go down to under Lucia there you find. Churches generally built upon a mosque. Correct and mosque was built upon a church than they destroyed. If you go to civilian you see them at Nickerson Tarver. A Cathedral Tower actually was the minaret of the old mosque. So there's this layering of history. And what's very poignant to me? Is We hear about people. Being beheaded today in this struggle of fanatic Islam and Christians and so on but if you go to a church in southern Spain it's very common to see a man on a horse with a big sword cutting off the heads of Muslims and at the feet of the Horse. There's six or eight heads of beheaded Muslims as correct. Lose this man that is son James. The son teams we're representing three ways bishop as more slayer the more slayer so his. His nickname was saint. James the slater the more killer. Well enter the Moore's for the Muslims. Yeah most of our lives and today's politically incorrect. So we're beginning to cover those heads on the floor seriously. Some of those old statues and paintings are getting with put flowers well enough so you hide them so you hide you see a guy on a white horse with a sore but every time a Christian is just so disgusted by a Muslim fanatic. That cut off one of his people's heads we've got to remember. This is nothing new in history Spanish. I consider myself Catholic. We've been the worst ever I mean. We've inquisition the request. We have expelled. The Jews I mean with excuse of religion with Don's much bad. The inquisition is Sort of gift of Spain to the rest of Europe. What gave yeah. I poisoned gift. Would you describe the The inquisition you see the palace don't you out l. escorial that's right correct. What is the inquisition? Mean to to church history It's a sad episode. I mean this might personal opinion. Very site I mean also gave us practical thing. But it's a very very sad history. Every time I talk to them to my travelers about inquisition unites ties with Catholic moral and they kept going on. We're exploring the important role that saints play in Spain right now on travel with Rick Steves. We're learning about the parts. They played in Spanish history. And how the focus of many national and regional festivals or guides are Francisco Barrio from pump Lona and Roman from Madrid. Where he when we travel around Spain. A lot of the saints. We encounter are patron saints limit. Cities does give me a few examples of that twelve james from Santiago still and we also have pilar which is a lady's name by diverging of Pr Saragossa. They have a basilica in there half way from Madrid to Barcelona. We got Theresa Innovia in Villa Santa Teresa of Jesus. Yeah that's right and there's beautiful convent made cookies and cakes that you experienced this close. Jim Sexually there are folks. We Love Sugar Skull. Gm us from Santa Teresa. Or Hey when I'm in severe. It seems like every neighborhood has its favourite. Mary and Virgin Mary and during Holy Week everybody takes their statues of Mary out in the streets. And parades what are some insights for travelers to severe during Easter time? You have a plastic. You're there on Easter and you are on the Good Friday and you'll see the verging of the hope you can the last. That's Esperanza the Virgin Villa. Esperanza she's nickname macarena because democracy district in the north of the city. So we know the Macarena song which was kind of went viral is that the same same is at the same word or whatever it. Is that your name? Monterey report specimens via because there's ladies. There's actually a church dedicated to the Virgin Della Macarena. Actually there is a beautiful church in there. And we're GONNA see this tattoo of the Virgin and also have a museum on the site and Sai Wing which you can see the Big Franz that they are native to this is the virgin with the crystal tear-drops direct. I find that to be one of the most impactful and emotional and just emotional statues anywhere near and then a couple of times. They'll actually take her out and walk through the town They took him. I think the early winter on my own means gene. Good Friday. Which is the Verge Mary? The Virgin de la Macarena. Anytime if you're if you go to that church in their open business travel with Rick Steves. We're talking with Roman and Francisco Gloria about saints in Spain.

"And that's step foster. Mother says he's got to watch yourself around. Then he says He's been at the University of very long time but again you site with Pity cloudy was yeah. Yeah I I've known often for a very long time familiar. I remember watching him in local hero back in the early eighties. So you know. He's he's a an actor being familiar with for very long time so when he finally became the doctor in the twenty tenths. You've got an expectation of not say what the character is going to be because capacity capacity. Pay Place lots of different things. You use an actor but certainly certainly an interesting person to bring to the role and it feels like this this season this is is. It's the best of his eat east playing a warm character the the two previous when he's quite abrasive. I mean although he's doing a great job aids it's hard took wom- table that much because of that had never heard of him before is costing which has been the case with all the doctors series which I always like having a blank slate. Not Yelling Sta. But I've had a lot of people saying expectations having team before. So how does it work with the reflection so she's reflected back but faces the right way round but presumably everything in the background is also the right around but in the right place so it looks like a mirror reflection never over easy to understand. I think very clever reflection reflection anyway just as it. Because she's got stars in her us. Yes but that's what did you think of the head of romance thing. Swat wasn't sure about the star. Sure I thought it was just really sort of like where did this come from. One Minute by lock is in a by the next minute. They're talking about reflections and the next minute she's gone to. There are only happy part of the whole episode where she sort of says promise. And that's it looks rather radiant in some one on and that's sort of the she's got this obsession with bill and offend that a bit spicer as Richard mentioned before it's a whole lot of time condense down but you really get that impression because there's nothing to watch to actually think that there's been any conned of real interaction between the two of them to sort of stop because you see them at the ball on walk online seating talking and I'm a bit perplexed about the whole thing because because the buffing looks very significant off then the next time you see him to get they appear like they hardly know each other and indepth not really sure of what each other things feels. The thing comes at that moment in the ball is when bill sees US sitting on UH revenge. She still doesn't know a name that point knock mercury injuries you know each other's name. Yeah when she's looking at the bottle. Yeah Yeah and you do see have early on are we to assume. That's the first time they really told guests. I think so We you see him early on sitting behind in one of the doctors lectures which is the first time you see him and it's lot yes. Bill funds at a little the bad heather that she wants to run away source wanting to run away this that and the other but hither funds nothing at about bill at all certainly not from what we hear the shipped Tena Really Conduct strange. I always thought she seemed a bit header. Seem sort uh-huh distracted old zest by this thing the whole time tim fairly a loser doesn't see because she she had already saying the Pontiac by the time we we see bill and I hope the veterans from that very fast. So I'm if you look into the puddle. She she'd changed the way she smiles. And that's about the only bit where she's probably self. I guess ooh It's off on that one and then. What does the doctor lighter? Never underestimate a crush crush for some reason by stone. A couple lines of dialogue and sing each other about that. Will you very weak crow shorts very powerful attraction and not follow this letter. I think I think gets dinking meaningful from From Moffett saying that it spent love at first sight. 'cause Israeli when I first lock is if it were love at first sight which appears to be from the way it's presented in the guess Baugh. Aw both remarkably hopeless but then actually made it stays true to life. My bills upset. Jessica kicks to give you say side. Yeah so have the disappearance puddle and then suddenly starts reappearing the bathroom. And it's quite a scary little site. I thought that was actually quite well. Donald that guy was so what's got it on You thought about being hitter. But it's like what's what's going on type thing that I thought that was caught. Well done what did you think Reja. Yeah well I I. I just thought it's taken back to the shining in a way this said she's cheese a bit drippy that she she was very tricky. I like the STAR The star in her I in the sink. Yes digital India. Can you then you sort of think. How does that happen? That mean how much of her body is physically manifested on the sinclair. Thanks you just don't tend to water. Kept the eyes. So that she'd been the bill also. We found out a little bit about a little bit more lighter. Aw when she returns but not funded much here now says cooler by her her actual nine five about I only saw at the end of the episode. uh-huh guys goodbye. Bill Tears. Yeah she picked out. Her name was bone. Remember that the we think. Think much about near the two characters named Beland Heather Allah Bill Hot and. I'm sure that's deliberate because I read that statement moffitt. It wasn't delivering really is Quincy which I didn't believe at the time. Because he sort of think need to know that but I think it transpired that stigma offered is not really a big William. I Dr Fan so he might. Yeah I been away mono the precursor unless of course. He didn't think about it. But it was deepening subconscious. Man could okay. Heather always go through bill. Yeah Yeah that can happen. That's happened was Dr Rogers before so I've heard I think I think certainly what can happen is you. Can you can write something or you can cover the idea that you think is original and then it turns out that actually. It's something that you've seen before but you didn't realize yeah what I'm thinking autism. There's a line in the type indicator by Garth Roberts which she's a lot like a line from the twin dilemma. That he was asked about it. Turns out is complete coincidence but that it may okay. Well wait subconscious here so after after Bill Gates targets and G has described earlier trying to work out whether it's a Akasha kitchen or a knock through or lift or whatever we we come to the elephant in the room which is Sickness and under at the bar and said yes. I thought you're going to say the elephant in the room of whether the todd has has a coil right. That is the question what happens when when the target goes on it. SIDEK mixing with the swimming pool. The the Sydney thing is eh. It's interesting because they obviously didn't go to seed need to film it although I think it really but you've heard of it may have been filmed when they went to when I had that was stopped to America pulled Ian Genyk Reimann by the film some backdrop of the usual Sydney stuff coverage of the House and then stitched with whatever it is they used this nice to make it look like it looked sunny Argentina's stock. They would have stopped shots of the harbour bridge available. Perhaps holiday Hudson for a long time. Doesn't he stands in front of it for a considerable good Seafood Louisville. We're lucky it wasn't wasn't based volcano. Saw has fully dungeness power station. Yeah I mean I guess you could go to any bar anywhere in the UK and find about. It doesn't Australians in the corner somewhere so I think it would be that hard to well. I liked the one of the. The extras in the background was wearing a yellow and green shirt with the Australian flag on the front. Just in case you didn't pick it up when I was J just before the reveal I think so if you look at the background. CACTUS the striving although it was filmed on in Cardiff back cafe just by that do you wear at toy like that in Australia only only Australians in the UK. I think that's people pretending to be a straight yes. I think it's Anton clothing choice belief. Well actually the those three chapter the beginning of enemy of the will you can tell their Australian because that's the legal the suit so yellow reading Yup one of the rare California's assist us a nicer. Maybe Kent was wearing purple. Yeah good question. It's like those Sweat shirts you see Dean University town. That are only for Chinese store. Americans may be able to actually live true. Ed Adler Michael Fly or to. Hey this is where we are really really we are here so we have a nice touch that tar. This only works in the English language. Really doesn't take her anywhere. Yeah one of those questions you can bring out and say. Hey this doesn't make any sense on. Yeah well that's I mean that's Mafa overs alikes to drop these things in and then Slightly slightly blue individuals time-limit limitation isn't it that We will mentioned it but Dan some something something happens in the background doesn't give time to explain to them when we come back to explain life for a nice MOFFITT line hungry looks looks like evil from the wrong end of the yeah. That was good. You think you'll bacon sandwich loves you. So what about the valid said. Well yeah that was surprised. That's a really sort of fan but isn't that By Land and you see them briefly they getting shot at and of course the dialects back briefly there in the trail and we knew that they were coming. But we didn't realize at Bayside Breif but I think the majority of the footage of Valens in the episode was in the side so yeah it was really nothing more than and then have it. It turns into a yes briefly Kobe exterminate your thought. That was a funny visual with Alec with the The star and its own with the OUGHTA. Call me off his. I was crying and that was the same in there with the had that whole extra saying that released ahead of time when they announced bill yes Jason Yea companions friend from the feature does He. Actually I mean another didn't bother to replay it this time. Does it actually fit if you were inserted our point. Yeah it's not in the APP so that you can stay tuned into the episode Design at some point. Think of or fully thing. I'll say on twitter. Come here. It's just a bit of laborious. Saint actually have in the episode. Yes yes so. It's a problem it shop to out and thought nervous if this doesn't work very well but we do. Is that how it works. Absorb all deny it to the script phase and ventiseri remade as a special introduction to bill I believe they filmed it especially right but essentially before the episode itself. doesn't Capelli's hairs different thing thing you know. All the sets of the Siamese fits now And then heather ability showed ago. I suppose you see any way that is going to resolve itself so this another instance of the Bad Guy Turning out to be mostly bad. Just WanNa brand which does recur around this time. Yes in fact the next episode of the sign up. Actually this is serious. Ten wasn't there a lot of buttons. What you've got very certainly got the defending eighteenth century? London this big yes because the thing in the the Emoji ball and the one with David Suchet yes. Well Oh yes yeah yeah and in small pots just trying to think. Yeah when trying to guilio mapping that's a very valid storytelling conclusion. Probably overuse not good old fashioned evil from. Yeah Yeah Yeah I think I think in any season you want to mix and that's probably why people get frustrated with Moffett. Killing people love bringing them back to life chip no letting the villain walk off into the sunset. Not It's a problem. Having it happened once it's when you see a pattern of three or four times that you feel less enthusiastic these gas to get back to interesting and certainly the end is sort of like the guy. Love conquers.

"Detectives Hercule Poirot. And this time Hercule is portrayed by John Malkovich. Next year will be the one hundredth anniversary of the publication of the first Agatha Christie novel, featuring her cool. He's an acutely observant crime solver in the Sherlock, Holmes tradition. He has a sick Belgian accent, and he's been played on screen by such actors Albert Finney, Peter Ustinov and most famously David Suchet who ended up starring in all the stories in a lengthy series presented here by PBS that series ended five years ago. But now in a new British production imported by Amazon prime video. Hercule Poirot lives. Again, this time. The novel is the ABC murders the thirteenth in this particular Christie series. It's adapted by Sarah Phelps who's writing and production credits in the UK in the last few years alone include the classy TV adaptations of Christie's. And then there were none. The witness for the prosecution and ordeal by innocence. And the ABC murders introduces as Christie's famously imperious Belgian detective an American actor John Malkovich. The murders is set and was originally written between the two world wars. It's one thousand nine hundred thirty three in England where posters proclaim such anti immigrant sentiments as we must stem the alien tied. Poirot an immigrant himself had come to England and succeeded admirably as detective, but the man we meet now is basically retired and long past his prime the new police inspectors don't respect him much, less consult him. He dies his beard to look younger, a temporary affectation that only makes him seem more outdated and desperate. But when someone begins taunting him with typewritten letters posted daily from different cities and threatening a series of random murders of alphabetically chosen victims. Poirot is the first to take the letter seriously. Letters which make it clear that the killer knows the detective well down to his newly blackened beard. Poirot. Always the smartest guy in the room. Is the first to recognize when the police arrest the wrong man pointing out the year of their ways even as detective buns. Played by Shane at wool is taking the suspect into custody. Isn't.

"You want to know the story and you will not get the story unless somebody like us gets the story for you you wanted. And so there's a constant kind of argument of push me, pull you around and we see a very young journalists, his first death, knock now top legitimate. They have to do that. They have to go to people's stores and they knock on the door and they say, we're really sorry to hear that you're relatively side. Would you like to tell me the story that push notes through the door and the problem that that people generally in how they feel like that's harassment? And I do think that there are elements of that kind of wrong. What we don't see here, which I think. Didn't win. True. Is with the young journalists coming up to get the story. What would happen normally is it would be him and four other people trying to get that story. So that's what's the different rival papers on rival. So come in, there'd be ringing the door. That'd be going the mobile. They put in notes through the going around the other way. That's the difference that you don't feel. So that kind of sense of would competitiveness or there you get between the broach in the tabloid that's not actually real life. What is between tabloids the Daily Mail on the they're all fighting for the same story. One thing I thought was laughingly convincing world. Some I really enjoyed the exchange with the intern and the holy Evans characters like the team. Yes. She's solution Tak dishes in time, so then turn comes up. So I've emailed this nurses in the hospital. No one's replied to me. I'm so don't think there's a story then the holy Evans. T. news editor just gets on. The train goes up there to to the cleaners face to face gets the story comes back. I mean, I don't know. This would be wonderful if you could get people to resign, wouldn't it? And then you know, day later gets the resignation of someone on the health board. A military thing that the fact that you have to go out and get stories very true, religious Email things in that doesn't really happen Andrew thoughts about this whole thing. Drama in it drama newspaper. I've never actually worked in arms length by sending them things, emailing them, things. As a drum thought, well, they're trying put of it is put a twist on the standard cliche newspaper drummer of which there are many people with hats with paper saying, press on its cameras as flashes to the trying to modern spin on it. Certain of the characters are compelling. The tabloid that it's, that's the bench chaplain is very ugly, overplayed kind of scenery-chewing news bastard. The the kind of disillusion jacker found less compelling Modi when one more one dimensional thought was incredible, was it is that newspapers of this kind of booming going concern, mighty engines of of control and power. And when you compare it to for me, the the only accurate portrait of newspapers that we've seen in drama lately, which was the series of the wire set in the Baltimore where people aren't talking about the and they talk about the redundancy package and what's gonna happen when there's no newspapers anymore. And incomes that guy from the social networking company that says, hey, it's all about tweets. And after After you. you have that kind of thing. So it's like this felt like drama that could have been made anytime open, tell about two thousand and two after pointless. Why goes if only we could get people to resign? If only we could get politicians, it was issues to resign was kind of a bunch of Harry posse idealize. One thing I really did like actually there was the David Suchet proprietor character. He plays against type. What you don't get is the scenery during you don't get this fake. Murdoch is saying, I want my newspapers to bring culture news and elevations, and it's good.

"david suchet" Discussed on Travel with Rick Steves
"David Suchet's a major figure in London theater and maybe best known in America for his twenty five years as the star of Agatha Christie's Perot on TV. He's telling us what he learned about the first century life of Simon Peter. When he explored the holy land and Roan for the BBC travel documentary called in the footsteps of Saint Peter, you might find it on your local public TV schedule and it's distributed on DVD by vision video. Among David's other projects, he narrates the entire new international version of the bible. You can also listen to our travel with Rick steves interview with David about the footsteps of Saint Paul. It's in our show archives at Rick steves dot com. Slash radio, look for program number four. Eighty one. It's from April in twenty seventeen David, watching your documentary on the footsteps of Peter. It really was clear that when you actually travel up to the gallery, you can find artifacts that that really. Sort of caused you to go back to a first century AD frame of mind. I mean, you can actually find as you pointed out, lead weights and needles for mending the the nets for the fishermen. And there's actually a boat from the first century that well, Warren boat with iron Staples holding together, they call it the Jesus boat, right? Yeah, that was an extraordinary experience. When I was making the program some pieces to be shown this first century fishing boat, it was an extraordinary find, but it put the whole life of Peter and the apostles on the industry into perspective. This isn't a big vote by any means, and you can imagine by being in a boat like this when the storms that come over the Galilee and big waves, you can imagine them being absolutely terrified. They're not like great, big fishing trolling boats of today and and just by looking at that boat and by being a close vicinity to it, you really are take him back to the. Century. And that is so grounding. It is interesting to look at it from a historical point of view, like Cup is the place on the Galilee where there was the most commerce and then happened to be where the I think the Jordan river comes into the sea of Galilee, and that would be where the water was most area did with there'd be the best fishing and fishing was big part of the industry. Talk a little bit more about the sight seeing you see around Copernican. What were some of the impactful sites that you saw? Well, the tourist sites there for everybody to see. I won't repeat all those. But what I will say is that the early Christians or the early followers of the way they have to worship in secret. They were very, very persecuted in an area that was ruled by Rome and persecuted by their own. And so the beginnings of the group that were following this rabbi at the time that was preaching such. Such a message that had nothing to do with the local Jewish belief. I mean, here was a man who was saying to his disciples and the poor. The first shall be last and the last shall be first. This turn the whole world view of Judaism on its head. So he was quite a revolutionary figure in his day and that that how area of Galilee and and as you walk around it, I think rather than any particular place if I was saying to anybody, what to do there is obviously yes and go to the tourist sites. But once again, I would find moments of peace just walking around the lake of find somewhere and just sit quietly, look, gays, and realize that you are there with them who was the tent, maker of the apostles that was poll paw. That was poll. He was attended mak-. That's how. He and his living. And you can find yourselves in nomadic communities where there are tent makers today with the same kind of black goat-hair temps. Yeah, that's right. But we remember with Paul that he was also one of his big assets was that he was also a Roman citizen, and there was some theory that his family were perhaps slaves rooms slaves. But yes, no, he was the tent maker and wherever he went on his travels, he would set up his his little temp- making business there. These sort of echoes of two thousand year ago economy civilization, the the goat hair tents the fishermen on the Galilee. And so on. Getting back to the footsteps of Saint Peter. David Peter died according to legend in Rome. It's conceivable he would have gone to Rome because this is before the diaspora. When the Romans destroyed the temple and the Jews dispersed all over the world, I believe that was AD seventy. So couple decades before that Peter could have gone to Rome because there was actually a Jewish community in Rome that predated the diaspora business community. And that's where the ghetto is enrolled to this day. Tell us about Peter in Rome and what is the veracity of the fact that he was killed there and buried on the Vatican hill and on that cemetery was built Saint Peter's basilica? Well, if you go into the, I'm not quite sure how to pronounce it. It's I think, is cool to Kharasi Chapo the Santa Maria del Popolo the church that you will see the most extraordinary painting by Jew of some Peter being crucified upside down. And the theory is that he was crucified in Rome and chose not to be crucified the correct way of because that was the way Jesus was crucified. So he was, he chose to be crucified upside down. If you go and venture to the catacombs in Rome, you will see on a wall images of Peter with Paul and prayers written to both of them on broken tiles. And that would suggest I'm told that pita could have been buried in the cartoons, and then his Assira which contained his bones was then later moved to where the Vatican is now, if I'm going to be perfectly honest, and I feel that I can do other, I'm not sure that Peter actually got to Rome because I feel and having read the New Testament in Paul's letters over and over and over and the acts of the apostles over and over and over. Nobody mentions. Peter in Rome. Nobody mentions Matola fact pita just disappears from the acts of the apostles, very suddenly a never comes back. We don't actually really. No, there's lots of books books called the bones of some pizza, and lots of people have written to try and prove that he was there and it could be the case. But I would like still further proof because it's not their Paul never mentions being with Peter in Rome, and you know, I wonder how this little fisherman Peter would feel walking into the Vatican now colds and pitas. I wonder how he would look at that and how he would react. I'm not sure he would have the biggest smile on his face a billion Roman Catholics, love the idea that Peter was yes pointing. I'm not. I'm not pointing any fingers Catholics I, it's just my personal belief that as much as I would like to believe the pizza was in Rome. I think. He would have been documented as having gone there because Peter was perhaps with John one of the very, very favorites disciples. I'm because of that. He would have been like a hero to his followers after Jesus's ascension host who would have been big news if he was there and it would have been a big news for him to visit Rome and there's none does nothing. There's nothing in the acts of the apostle to say, ever went there. He just suddenly disappears and the what we know is that he wrote to people in cappuccino. And that's why I went to the cave churches in company chair. Got I'm, which are just amazing Renault that he wrote to the people in capita. You know, the some indication that he wrote about Babylon in one of his letters and people say, well, that was Rome. But you know, I would like to see harder evidence in. If I did see hotter evidence, I would applaud it and welcome it. But at the moment, my own feeling is the pita actually didn't get there. Was Babylon codeword for room. That's what they say. So it'd been if you're doing anything subversive within the Roman empire, you wouldn't. You might see something bad about Babylon to be kind of a wink, wink. We're talking about the empire. Yes, yes, absolutely. Of course there's wonderful, inspirational, religious. I told her of these training, but you call Jerusalem what you consider the most religious city anywhere. Let's just closer discussion here about the footsteps of Paul with with an image in Jerusalem. What is it about Jerusalem that that really takes you back and connects you with your faith? I think standing if you ever go to the Austrian hospice, which is right in the centre of Jerusalem and on the actual Via Dolorosa where they say that Jesus walked to to the cross. If you go into the Austrian hospice and you stand at the very top on its roof and look around that city and you'll see the dome of the rock and you'll see different. Churches and you are aware that this city was fought over. People died for it there with the crusades. Islam came and took it from the crusaders, and there is so much blood on that soil that ironically is the religious competent of the world in the skyline is a commotion of crosses end crescents reminding people that it's such a holy place for Christians, Muslims and Jews alike. And yet it's the place famous for the greatest hostilities even today so pointed and so inspiring to actually go and travel there night, encourage anybody who's curious to not wait for things to quote settle down. I mean, if you know that it's never going to happen if you wanna go to Israel in the holy land do it. Now it's perfectly safe from thousands and thousands of people go there and I highly recommend if you do go to Israel to make sure you, you cross the wall and go to the West Bank Palestine as well as Israel in here. Both narratives and recognize there's a lot of powerful biblical sites on the Palestinian side of the wall. Well, as in Jerusalem up in Galilee. Absolutely Bethlehem Bethlehem, isn't it interesting to think that Bethlehem which is in Palestine you could buy from Bethlehem where where people believe Jesus was born to to Druce lem, where they believe he was crucified. You could Bank there in half an hour, but there's a wall that makes it a world apart today. Yeah, yeah. It's a sad, sad thing that going into Bethlehem and coming out of Bethlehem. You have to go through border patrol guards, it's a very, very different world, but closure is for one second. When you're doing that and imagine that to be instead of his Rayleigh guns Roman guns. Well, spoken like a person who's been there in person has been there a very thoughtful way David Suchet. Thank you for all of your work, and thank you so much for joining us. Thank you.
