The world’s media only reports what they believe to be negative stories about Israel.  Here on Walter’s World you learn how that same world benefits from Israel’s technological advance.
Much of the water that now flows from our taps is desalinated from the Mediterranean Sea.  When in 2015 you will turn on your water taps in Israel, 75% of all water will come from desalination plants and already today, 80% of water used in agriculture is recycled waste water.  
Hear this amazing story.
Also, a Star interview with the versatile Theodore Bikel and some of his 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.
