* In Season 5 of ''Series/TheAmazingRace'', the editors used a version of the HolyBacklight on, of all things, an airport departures board when they were talking about their faith. To underline the effect, they also added a sound effect of a heavenly choir. On the next leg, the same sound effect was used, along with a shot of a line of white-robed nuns descending an escalator, when they were able to secure seats on an earlier flight that hadn't been available the day before.
