As part of the Worlds of Difference radio series following global cultural change, Jonathon Miller reports on the rock band The Free Monks — a group of Greek Orthodox monks who use their music to spread a message of faith to Greek youth. The Free Monks have made four CDs since they burst onto the Greek pop music scene in 2000.
