Coptic pilgrimage in BBC2 “The Frankincense Trail” programme

Quite by accident I see that a visit to a Coptic monastery at pilgrimage time features in a BBC programme, “The Frankincense trail.”  Presented by Kate Humble, episode 3 includes scenes of wild enthusiasm to the point of blows being exchanged as thousands of Coptics attend the ceremony.  It’s very cheering stuff to watch. 

The rest of the programme is mainly about Egypt, and should encourage quite a few young people to long to visit!
