The show tells the story of Evan Roberts, a 26 year ex miner who claimed to have been commissioned personally by the Almighty to lead a world wide Religious Revival. From the start controversy dogged him as he travelled the UK accompanied by his band of teenage female disciples. Over an 18 month period his message turned the UK upside down but at the end of that time, broken and exhausted, he left public life never to appear again in public. The story is told by W T Stead, a real life investigative journalist who travelled to Wales to experience the Revival first hand. Stead was last seen alive sitting in the smoking room of the Titanic. That's where our story starts.
