Amazing Grace

The Englishman John Newton, had an unbelievable life  that went from being press-ganged into the Royal Navy, through a number of near-death experiences to spiritual conversion and hymn writing. 

He's the man who, in the 1760's, wrote  'Amazing Grace' with himself as 'the wretch'  who was saved.

But that hymn has since taken on a life of its own. . .as a bagpipe standard, a civil rights anthem, the most popular song for funerals.. . .as the song people turned to after 9/11, Columbine, and the Challenger tragedy. 

Writer Steve Turner follows the evolution of  that song in our CBC Documentary 'Amazing Grace' following the 11 o'clock news tonight.
