For the final Middle East Analysis podcast of 2012, we have chosen to set aside, temporarily, the hard political angles and social realities of the Middle East North Africa region and instead focus on the seasons of Advent and Christmas. Bishops' consultant on the MENA region, Dr Harry Hagopian, offers a personal festive reflection.
The full podcast can be downloaded/played at the top right-hand corner of this page.
Duration: 8m 16s
For those of you interested in a more analytical sound bite, Dr Hagopian has recorded a short piece on Egypt's draft constitution for AudioBoo. With thousands of demonstrators on the streets of the capital Cairo ahead of President Mohammed Morsi's referendum on the draft constitution, our MENA consultant offers his latest update.
