BBC travel writer consistently accurate and impartial

The ‘Travel‘ section of the BBC website recently included an article about the Ramon Crater titled “Israel’s mysterious ‘Grand Canyon’” which was also featured on the BBC News website’s Middle East page. The article, written by Dan Savery Raz, includes some lovely photographs and plenty of useful practical information for potential visitors to that very special area of outstanding beauty.

The same author has also written about Jaffa, the Galilee and kibbutz tourism for the BBC website, as well as Israeli micro-breweries, wine and hummus.  In each case, he manages to produce engaging, interesting, informative and accurate reports without falling into the trap of politicising his subject matter. 

That’s a welcome mini-break in itself.

  1. Dan Savery Raz’s stories are fine, but in ” Living in… great cities for history and ancient ruins” By Sunshine Flint, there is a picture of a Tel Aviv beach with jaffa in the background and the caption “A beach in Tel Aviv with views of the ancient Arab port, Jaffa”. One wonders what makes the 4000 year old Jaffa “Arab” rather than Kenaanite, Greek, Roman, or maybe even -God help us all- Hebrew. After all, Jona set sail from Jaffa a thousand years before the Arab invasion…

  2. Here in the UK we are not allowed to see this article as “it is part of our international service and is not funded by the licence fee”!
