The spire of the Notre Dame collapsing on April 15, 2019

On Monday the 16th of November the BBC programme Storyville took a look back at the raging fire of Notre Dame on the 15th of April 2019.

Over its 90-minute course, this minute-by-minute Storyville documentary brings us a parade of tears, prayers, peril, gargoyles, French President Macron, stern faces lit by flickering flames, an emotional Monsignor, desperate decisions, giant bells, the stalwart mayor of Paris, and lots of battle metaphors. A film director would make much of the scene where a firefighter eventually emerges clutching the precious Crown. Oh no! That’s the replica!
