Since 1973, ABC has been airing the 1956 version of The Ten Commandments every year, with its airing date somewhere in between Passover and the Saturday before Easter. The only exception to this was in 1999 when they aired a remake which was in no way comparable to the classic. Luckily they switched back to the original the next year :) I look forward to watching this movie every year and am always so grateful that ABC continues to broadcast it!
Here is the synopsis given by ABC:
The film traces the story of Moses, from the time his mother set him afloat on the Nile, through his years as a young commander in Pharaoh's army to his betrayal and exile and, finally, his deliverance of the Israelites and the receiving of God's Commandments.
