Edward Stourton explores the Jordan, one of the most powerfully symbolic rivers in the world.
In the Bible the River Jordan is 'deep and wide', a divide between this world and the Promised Land. The reality today is that at many points the river has been reduced to little more than a contaminated trickle. Can the Jordan, which is revered by Jews, Christians and Muslims alike, be saved?
Edward's journey starts on the melting snows of Mount Hermon, the source of the water of the Jordan.
