A7 Radio's "Walter's World" with Walter Bingham
Follow Israel Radio on
This programme is devoted to Taglit Birthright Israel, one of our most important organizations promoting Israel to the young Jews of the world. They bring them on absolutely free, no strings attached 10 day trips to Israel. Thousands, after they return, never again believe what they read in their newspapers or are told on TV, because they have experienced the truth in the land of their heritage.
You can share with me the pure enjoyment of being among the future of the Jewish people and of the State of Israel, totally away from politics. I shall also talk with the CEO of Taglit Birthright Gidi Mark, to hear some of the facts behind this wonderful organization.
It’s a different reality, from the depressing one of politics.

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.
