Amish: A Secret Life is a new BBC documentary following David and Miriam Lapp of Lancaster County. From the description on the BBC website:

An intimate portrait of Amish family life and faith – this film opens up a world usually kept private. Miriam and David are Old Order Amish and photography is not permitted under the strict rules of the Amish church. So when they agree to open their home and their lives to the cameras, they embark on a journey which is not without risk. As the film unfolds, we learn exactly what is at stake for this family – and why they wanted to share their lives and risk all.

The film has been airing on the various BBC networks (next showing: BBC One, Aug 27 at 3:45 AM). It’s also up on Youtube (thanks to Simon in the UK for the link):
