Part 1.

  Iran expert Dr. Emanuele Ottolenghi gives a deep insight into the background and developments with regard to Iran’s nuclear programme. The questions he discusses are: What would the world look like under the shadow of an Iranian nuclear arsenal, or the knowledge that Iran has the capability to build one; what can be done to avoid the consequences of this scenario; If Iran succeeds in its quest for nuclear capability and eventually nuclear weapons, can it be deterred ; why does Iran seek this capability – could it be just an instrument of persuasion, in which case deterrent offers us answers and means of countenance; or does Iran in some way aspire to the kind of weaponry that nuclear capability can produce to pursue a more sinister agenda, that is reflected in the rhetoric that has long characterised the regime. 

Part 2.

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.
