Rick Steves' The Holy Land: Israelis and Palestinians Today  This hour-long special weaves together both the Israeli and the Palestinian narratives. In Israel, we go from the venerable ramparts of Jerusalem to the vibrant modern skyline of Tel Aviv. In Palestine, we harvest olives near Hebron, visit a home in Bethlehem, and pop into a university in Ramallah. We also learn about security walls, disputed settlements, and the persistent challenges facing the region.

Glenkiln Sculpture Park near Dumfries: this park was founded by Sir William Keswick who was a pal of the famous artist Henry Moore, who has four sculptures displayed through the grounds.
