Jerusalem is back in the news. Donald Trump announced that the USA is going to recognise it as the capital of Israel. Then again for the last 3000 years it has rarely been out of the news.

He explains why it is sacred to three religions and why it has so often found itself on the front line of the great conflicts that have shaped the history of the Middle East and the wider world.
