There's a Bible marathon on Italian TV. It was kicked off on Sunday (fittingly enough, the day the Synod of Bishops opened their discussions on the Word of God in the life of the Church), with the goal of reading the every book, every word, from Genesis to Revelation, on live TV. Even Pope Benedict had a turn with the book of Genesis. At this writing, Sunday night, they are already well into the story of the golden calf.
Even if you can't understand Italian, it's worth spending a bit of time with. The production is very high quality--and the Word of God is living and active, even in a language you don't understand!
