What impact has Rowan Williams had as an Archbishop, presiding over the Anglican Communion worldwide through one of its most turbulent periods? How has he coped with the huge issues he has faced - the growing pressure from some wings of the Church to allow gay clergy and women bishops, and the equal pressure from other wings, who find such ideas abhorrent? What about the Iraq war, Sharia Law, and the Credit Crunch? Andrew Goddard has talked to those around the Archbishop, to discover what it is like to live and work so much in the public eye. In this objective and analytical record, we get also to see the man behind the mitre: a scholar who would probably not have chosen to take on such a role. What sort of leader has he been, and what legacy does he leave to his successor? Will he prove to be the last Archbishop of Canterbury for a more or less united Church?
