There is a documentary on Coptic iconography by the BBC:

Thank you for posting this Salpy - I love BBC documentaries.  They're always so well done and this subject was fascinating.  I haven't seen many documentaries on the Coptic Church.  The only problem with video is that you just don't get the true, full experience of the women ululating.  I attended a Liturgy served at St. Anthony Coptic Church here in San Antonio years ago when HH Pope Shenouda visited.   The womens' ululating would positively send shivers down your spine.  The whole experience was so beautiful.  His Holiness seems so good natured and genuinely loving.

On the spiritual path somewhere between the Simpsons and St. Theophan the Recluse, but I still can't see the Springfield city limits sign yet.
