TBN’s "Great Souls" Inspires Millions of Everyday Souls Worldwide
What do Billy Graham, Pope John Paul II, Mother Teresa, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Elie Wiesel, and Nelson Mandela have in common? They are the heroic souls whose lives are featured on American Trademark Pictures "Great Souls" television series, airing Wednesday evenings, 6 PM Pacific, on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN).
Each half-hour long biographical sketch highlights the inner strength and purpose that motivated these amazing individuals, particularly during times when they faced extraordinarily difficult challenges.
Focused on for their contributions to the betterment of humankind, these six "Great Souls" are known for their enormous influence on the world, often winning over people (as well as nations) against seemingly insurmountable odds. But they did not succeed merely because of their position or office. Their greatness was achieved through their powerful spirit and the inner qualities that guided them throughout their lives, eventually shaping the very foundation of twentieth century western values.
Special guests include David Frost, William F. Buckley, Elie Wiesel, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, and Billy¹s son Franklin Graham. Private interviews give these unique personalities a platform from which to share their own in-depth reflections, reinforcing the superb quality of the telecast.
The series also includes symphonic tributes performed by the hugely popular, quarter-century old Virginia Beach Symphony Orchestra, whose current roster of musicians exceeds one hundred members.
David Aikman, the show¹s host, has interviewed numerous powerful personalities, reporting on their exceptional lives from various world capitals for over two decades. As former senior correspondent for TIME Magazine, Aikman was on hand as many remarkable human forces immersed themselves in global events, pointedly illuminating vast wisdom, and fostering insight for all whose lives they touched.
TBN’s publicist, Susan Zahn, says the response to "Great Souls" has been excellent, and falls in line with TBN’s goal to inspire its viewers through positive and uplifting, contemporary programming.
