The Complete Story: Religion and Race in Global Non-Fiction Programming


This essay examines the intersection of media globalization, race and religion. Focusing on the BBC/Discovery Channel’s documentary Jesus: The Complete Story, the essay argues that the production of documentaries by global television networks such as Discovery necessitates rethinking Eurocentric representations of iconic figures like Jesus Christ. Ultimately, discourses of nationalism and race that have been tied to religious imagery are increasingly being replaced by discourses of science and technology in order to appeal to international audiences.
