More than a third of Scotland's Catholic population will be at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow when the Pope arrives by helicopter to celebrate an open-air Mass. Among the crowd of 300,000 will be contingents from the Western Isles, pilgrims from Northern Ireland and nearly 3,000 Poles, who will sing to John Paul in Polish.
Massed choirs of 1,500 and four bands will lead the music on the final day of the Pope's visit to Scotland.

A Birthday Celebration: part 1 Lawrence Durrell's Greece

In 1976 Peter Adam took Lawrence Durrell (who celebrates his 70th birthday this year), author of several Greek Island books, back to Greece. Their journey took them to Corfu, Rhodes, Crete and Hydra. Durrell has often said that words alone cannot express the true nature of Greek landscape and village life. In this film he pushes aside the debris of the present and guides us through the Greece of his youth.
"The Greece that I knew as a young and aggressive poet has changed. Nevertheless I feel there might be some point in trying to recollect and perhaps re-create a little bit of the Greece which is not finished yet and gone for good, and whose ghost still rises up to afflict me from time to time. I would like to recall those golden years and to throw open the many-coloured background of Greece's own history so that the landscape may be evoked before the eyes of the viewer who is not free to touch with his own hands or to feel the beauty of Greece."

"The look of the thing was spectacular, and Durrell on tour proved to be drily funny and unpompous." (The Guardian)
