Dead Sea Scrolls Documentary

With William F. Albright, Yigael Yadin, John Trever, Roland DeVaux, Peter Flint, Eugene Ulrich

Twenty years ago, on the 50th anniversary of the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, I produced a 14-minute documentary featuring audio I had collected for my radio program from presentations and interviews. I also included audio from a series of public radio programs produced by University of Wisconsin professor Menahem Mansoor, from tape recordings which he bequeathed to me. These recordings included observations from William F. Albright (whom he had studied under), Yigael Yadin, and Roland DeVaux–key figures in the discovery and excavation of the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Qumran community. I am presenting this program from The Book & The Spade archives to mark the 70th anniversary of the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Inside the Albright Institute

With Prof. Seymour Gitin

This is a re-broadcast of a 1985 program, following our first Book & The Spade tour. We visited the Albright Institute in East Jerusalem and Albright Director Seymour Gitin took us to the basement storage rooms and gave us a brief history of Biblical Archaeology. This is one of the most memorable programs in our 30-year history.

Does Archaeology Prove the Bible?

With Profs. James Hoffmeier, Lawrence Geraty, and Steven Ortiz

Three modern archaeologists reflect on the assertion of William F. Albright and Nelson Glueck that no find in Biblical Archaeology has contradicted the Bible. Is it still true?
