Sacred Spaces Debuts Sunday on CET
A couple of DVR alerts for Sunday night: CET premieres "Sacred Spaces," a one-hour documentary about the unique architecture and art in area churches.... while a couple of former residents show up on ABC's "Here Come The Newlyweds" reality show.
Sacred Spaces: If you have HDTV, this show is gorgeous. The local film, three years in the making, tours the inside of our great old churches in downtown Cincinnati, Covington and the suburbs. But it's not all statues and steeples. Producer Meg Hanrahan also provides a historical and social context to the churches, showing how Avondale Jewish temples have been adapted by African-American Christian congregations. This is truly educational TV.
CET will air the show with pledge breaks at 8 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Sunday; 7:30 p.m. Thursday March 6; and 4 p.m. Saturday March 8. (And probably several more times during pledge month.)
Newlyweds: Have you recognized anyone in the ABC promos on Channel 9? Two of the seven couples on the show have area ties: Former Mariemont residents Fawziah and Atif Bajwa, who moved to Chicago after the taping in California last summer, and Lance and Heather Burt Holmes of Middletown, who moved from Middletown to Colorado last fall. Heather is a 1997 Fenwick High School grad.
The six-week reality show premieres Sunday (10:02 p.m., Channels 9, 22). Each week the couples vote a couple out of the game. The winners could receive $250,000 or more.
