The Facts, The Fiction & The Phenomenon
When The Da Vinci Code, written by Dan Brown, was launched on an unsuspecting literary world, few would have predicted the publishing phenomenon that this incredible book was destined to become. However, mention The Da Vinci Code today, just about anywhere, and you'll find that everyone has heard of it and the majority have read it!
This would be remarkable enough if The Da Vinci Code was purely a work of fiction, but the interwoven facts, that are indeed the backbone of the novel, put it in a class of its own. Yet the history, paintings and locations that inspired Dan Brown's tale are equal as fascinating as the book itself, and this program has been devised to take you on an intriguing journey of discovery in search of the facts behind the fiction.
Follow in the author's footsteps from the elegant Louvre Museum in Paris to the beautiful Chateau de Villette in the heart of the French countryside, and then travel on to London for Westminster Abbey and the Temple Church, before concluding the proceedings at Edinburgh's delightful Rosslyn Chapel. See for yourself the paintings of Leonardo Da Vinci and step back and step back in time to uncover the secrets of the past that have a message for the present and future that should never be ignored.
