EWTN Episode includes a dramatization of a portion of TMWWT
It should come as no surprise that The Man Who Was Thursday has about it a spiritual and in fact Christian element. Even for atheists that should not be a roadblock for reading and discussing this book.
That being said I would like to advise anyone who is interested that the EWTN network's broadcast of G.K. Chesterton's Apostle of Common Sense this week includes a dramatization of a small portion of The Man Who Was Thursday. It is the encounter of Gabriel Syme with the policeman at the beginning of the book.
My local cable showed the episode last night, 2/10/13 and will rerun it on 2/13/13.
In the interest of full disclosure, EWTN is the Catholic Network but this episode is light on doctrine and heavy on dramatization as it also includes a dramatization of a part of one of Chesterton's plays, The Surprise.
The entire show is less than 30 minutes and the bulk of it is taken up with the above plays.
