A7 Radio's "Walter's World" with Walter Bingham
Follow Israel Radio on
A Musical Extravaganza.
The Life and Times of Irving Berlin.
Told with little talk and lots of his music.
And: By contrast – hear, that in Israel there is unfortunately also a need for discrete shelters, where abused spouses can seek refuge and you will hear one of many painful and harrowing stories, candidly told by a young victim, who now lives with her child, hidden from her spouse in such accommodation.
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.
