Second Coming - Manchester Passion 
From MediaGuardian:

"The BBC plans to mark the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ this Easter with an hour-long live procession through the streets of Manchester featuring pop stars from The Stone Roses and Happy Mondays and featuring songs by The Smiths and New Order.

In the programme, called Manchester Passion, a character representing Jesus will sing the legendary Joy Division anthem Love Will Tear Us Apart before dueting his arch-betrayer Judas on the New Order hit Blue Monday, according to senior church sources involved in the production."

However, reports that Mary Magdelene will sing a version of the Buzzcocks' Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn't've), have been dismissed by the BBC.
