Retreat: Meditations from a Monastery

BBC4 has done a TV series about various Benedictine monasteries in the UK. Each episode has scenes filmed at the monastery- from the monks at prayer and work. Calm, quiet, uplifting and an interesting insight to the lives of monks, which an outsider would not normally see. The monasteries covered are: Downside Abbey, Pluscarden Abbey and Belmont Abbey.
