They come alone from all over the world to voluntarily serve in the IDF, Israel's Defence Forces. Zionists? Idealists?  We call them Lone Soldiers or 'Our Best Kids'. Hear how a wonderful organisation provides them with the services, advice and help they miss, by not having their families here. Also: What happens to the blood that you donate to Magen David Adom?  Come with me to Israel's blood bank and laboratory and hear how Hepatitis and even HIV is detected in donations and what happens to unwitting donors. And Music.

Walter Bingham was born in Germany. Just days before the outbreak of WWII, with the help of a Zionist youth movement he was selected for a place on the ‘Kindertransport’ to Great Britain. Walter saw front line action during the Normandy invasion of Europe and was awarded the Military Medal for ‘Bravery in the Field’. In England Walter also acted in films including several Harry Potter films. On the day of his Aliyah in August 2004 he transferred his programme ‘Walter’s World’ to Israel National Radio as a weekly Magazine programme and it has been running here regularly ever since. Walter is an accomplished public speaker and was a member of a visiting panel of lecturers at schools throughout the UK, where he spoke on events in the Third Reich. He has also spoken at schools in the USA and addressed audiences in Israel.
