Dr Michael Marten has been interviewed by Caitlin Smith for a BBC documentary, picking up on his research on Scottish missions in Palestine.
The presenter is Angus Roxburgh. The programme examines the hotel in Tiberias owned and run by the Church of Scotland, critically addressing current Church policies in the light of historical circumstances. The conversion from a guest house to a luxury hotel has long been a controversial issue in the wider Church, as this 2004 BBC article indicates.
‘A Hotel in the Holy Land’ is to be broadcast on Wednesday 31.10.12 at 11:00 on Radio 4.
We will post an iPlayer link if we become aware of one.
