Jerusalem: Capital of Two States? explores one of the most colorful and tumultuous cultural mosaics in the world. The confluence of three of the world's major religions in Jerusalem shows how different groups view places and regions differently. The varying attitudes associated with religion go a long way toward answering the question of how cultures shape the character and settlement pattern of a region. In Turkey: Fundamental Change, the video program shows a similar conflict between groups and their perceptions of place by comparing the secular and the religious in Turkey.
