The Narnia Code – now available on DVD

Based on the book Planet Narnia by Dr. Michael Ward, The Narnia Code explores what Ward describes as the Narnia Chronicles "hidden third layer." In addition to the simple story layer and the layer of obvious biblical parallels, Ward demonstrates that each Narnia book "declares the glory of God" by digging deep into Lewis's love of medieval astronomy.

The Narnia Code features at length interviews with Ward and other literary scholars as well as dramatizations of Lewis's early life and career.

After airing in Britain for Easter 2009, the documentary received glowing reviews from critics who called it "an exciting piece of literary detective work" (London Lite), "engrossing" (The Sunday Times), "thoroughly involving" (The Guardian), and "fascinating" (Daily Record).

Distributed by Entertainment One, the DVD additionally features extensive bonus material that includes everything from a personal guided tour of Lewis' stomping grounds in Oxford – to visiting three of his old friends for a fascinating run of unique, personal insights. The DVD also takes viewers to the surviving trenches of WWI in Belgium and France, rediscovering the long lost grave of Paddy Moore, Lewis' great wartime friend.

"If you're a fan of C. S. Lewis, this will be an insightful addition to your home library."
