Bethesda Documentary – Under the Shadow

A  television documentary  made in 1991, which features the Bethesda Hospice in Stornoway, is now available on Youtube (Here). It also features our own Bill Lucas!

It focuses on Rheumatology Professor Verna Wright of Leeds University, and Christina Maclean MBE,  both medics, both Christians, and  both suffering from a terminal illness.  The film was produced and directed by Jim Wiltshire. It reveals how the Professor, an evangelist  who also co-founded the United Beach Missions, and Christina, the former Chief Area Nursing Officer for the Western Isles Health Board who became the first Matron/Manager of the Bethesda Nursing Home and  Hospice, were able to cope with their cancer because of their faith. Both died within a month of each other in 1998.
