With respect to the devastating fire that tore through the Notre-Dame de Paris, National Geographic was fortunate enough to visit the 850-year-old cathedral earlier this year for the most recent season of THE STORY OF GOD WITH MORGAN FREEMAN to get an intimate look at the church and the priceless relic, the Crown of Thorns, which is thought to be the crown placed on Jesus' head during Crucifixion. Fortunately, the irreplaceable crown was saved.
For any news story relating to Monday's incident, National Geographic is granting access to THE STORY OF GOD WITH MORGAN FREEMAN footage visiting Notre-Dame from The Gods Among Us episode.
