Just four hours after the deadly rocket struck Kiryat Malachi, Walter visited the destroyed apartments where three people lost their lives and brings his vivid sound pictures from the scene.
Also in his report are on the spot statements by Home Front Command, the police and the visibly shaken British Ambassador as well as our Minister for Diplomacy.
We also hear from the mayor and citizens of Ashkelon, how they feel, spending much of their time in shelters.
In part two there are interviews with the two central personalities of a book launched in the presence of the Prime Minister and endorsed by him. Very unusually these 198 pages are recommended by Walter.
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.
