An Everyman Journey into the Desert This week:
The Mystery of the Beduin
Desert landscapes are magnificent, enticing and for those who venture deep into them, simply overwhelming.
It is this experience that has fascinated Western explorers and romantics of the past. Today's explorers and romantics in their thousands, scientists, adventurers, farmers and artists are rediscovering that hypnotic attraction of the wilderness. Could the deserts' unique qualities have shaped the emergence of Judaism, Christianity and Islam? And indeed could they still possess a powerful message for the modern world?
Everyman has followed the lives of desert dwellers, ancient and modern, in Arizona, Israel and the Sinai Peninsula. In tonight's programme we journey with the Beduin in search of those spiritual and physical roots that mysteriously sustain them in so uncompromising a world.
Film cameraman KEITH HOPPER Film editor PETER DELFGOU
Written and produced by STEPHEN ROSS Everyman editor PETER ARMSTRONG
