Apr-30 7:30pm SBS1-TV: Pilgrimage With Simon Reeve

Read on for article

Simon begins the final leg of his pilgrimage journey in Istanbul, Turkey, gateway to the east.

He travels on to the Holy Land, following in the footsteps of Victorian travellers who used the definitive guide book published in 1876 by Thomas Cook. Driving to into the West Bank and on to Bethlehem, he’s astonished by the scale of the Israeli security barrier. In Jerusalem, his final destination, Simon meets a doctor who treats the bizarre ‘Jerusalem Syndrome’, a phenomenon where visitors to the city become so overwhelmed by the place they become convinced they personally are the Messiah or one of the Apostles. (Part 3 of 3) (From the UK)
