A  television documentary made in 1991 -- which features the Bethesda Hospice in Stornoway -- is now available on Youtube.

It features 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.
