On Thursday, Our Fathers is on BBC Scotland channel at 8:30pm.
It follows Fathers Maximilian and James, who have been sent on a mission by the Bishop of Aba, Nigeria to the Scottish Highlands to help with a shortage of priests. It shows how their priesthood - as well as humour and African songs - contributes to their Catholic communities.
Both documentaries follow Priest School, a big hit on the BBC Scotland channel earlier this year. It follows the lives of seminarians studying at the Pontifical Scots College in Rome.
Priest School is now on BBC iPlayer.
