Jerusalem’s new Light Rail Transit System is expected to open to the public in August. Serious testing has been in progress for some time and Walter with his microphone and Ben Bresky with the INN cameras went on a pre-view trip to experience this new addition to the city’s transport.

Come with us and feel the excitement of driving over the city’s newest landmark, the Bridge of Strings at the entrance to the centre of the world, Jerusalem. You’ll love this slinky people mover .

Also: Israel’s senior authority on Missile technology and development talks about the rocket attacks the country is exposed to, and the latest weapon against short term missiles form Gaza, The Iron Dome. And: Some Music.

Walter talks with the head spokesperson of the Jerusalem light rail.

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.
