Church of the Holy Sepulchre (centre)
At the very place where Christians believe Jesus Christ was crucified then resurrected, now stands the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
 
Shared by six denominations, it is a church riven by a confusing and complex series of spiritual battles placing it at the very heart of the Middle East.
 
However, the church's gatekeeper is not a Christian; members of a Muslim family have locked and unlocked the Holy Sepulchre's front door every day for the last 800 years.
 
This film explores the background to this unusual story and how it reflects the meeting of a wide range of people despite their religious differences.
 
Holding The Key aired from 5 to 8 February 2007
