A River Runs Through It - Episode 2


Edward Stourton explores the Jordan, one of the most powerfully symbolic rivers in the world. Its unique mix of faith, politics and beauty has intrigued and inspired writers and travellers from Biblical times to the present day. In a region where water is said to be more precious than oil, it is understandable that the River Jordan has also, for centuries, been at the centre of conflicts that have swept through the Middle East. But that may now be starting to change, as Edward discovers when he visits the Jordan valley. This series is available until 11.00am on 23rd September as part of the Series Catch-up Trial.
