Monumental Challenge: Cathedral de Santiago (TV Program)

I watched an interesting program tonight called Monumental Challenge which explores the challenges of restoring and maintaining historic buildings and structures. Episode 4 is about the Cathedral and it's a fascinating behind the scenes look at the initial forensic work on the restoration of the Pórtico de la Gloria, as well as the push to do some "face lift" restoration ahead of the King & Queen of Spain's Holy Year visit for St. James Day in 2010 and a visit from Pope Benedict four months later.

I watched it in Canada on Britbox - not sure how it would be accessed elsewhere.

Thanks, @Theatregal. I found the screen showing the series, but when I clicked to try to find the film it began to go to Amazon, and I thought, this is going to go round in circles. Please keep sharing your finds! Croire was worth watching, and I forwarded the link to a friend who needs French in her ear right now.
