Jerusalem is a unique place on the face of the Earth. The ancient city is sacred to three of the world's great religions: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. This fact has been its strongest and weakest point, the cause for great celebration and great strife. This program examines the history of the region, and looks at the vibrant, multicultural city of Old Jerusalem today. Archival film clips, photographs, journals, personal accounts, and commentary by historians and religious scholars tell the story.
