Regional Variations (2)

The Spirit of Scotland

BBC One Scotland

In a darkened room somewhere in England, three young Christians are being taught how to break the law. They have volunteered for a mission that will involve subterfuge, intrigue, and, if caught, imprisonment. They are smuggling Bibles into Communist countries in Eastern Europe, deliberately violating the laws of the land.
There are some 40 highly organised international missions involved in these cloak and dagger activities, and they all passionately believe that Christians living in Communist lands are in need of both their support and their Bibles.
Everyman investigates their methods, their claims, and their ethics, and separates the fiction from the fact.
