The ninth programme in a ten-part series telling the story of the twelve men and one woman who witnesses the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. Starting in Galilee, traces the story of Judas within the Jesus movement, culminating in the events in Jerusalem at the Last Supper and the betrayal in Gethsemane. Re-examines traditional interpretations of his act of betrayal, and considers alternative ideas, including the possibility that Jesus and Judas were in collusion for some reason. Ponders why he is seen as a "hero" in some Christian traditions.
