A7 Radio's "Walter's World" with Walter Bingham
Follow Israel Radio on
Sit back and enjoy some light entertainment. After several weeks of serious programs on politics religion and economy, as well as the prolonged period of introspection and prayer, it's time for some relaxing and entertaining hours. Walter's World brings you a collection of Jewish comedy sketches, probably known to our older listeners as "You Don't Have to Be Jewish / When You're in Love the Whole World Is Jewish" from the team of Bob Booker and George Foster.
And a musical extravaganza, about the life and times of the world-famous Jewish-American songwriter Irving Berlin.

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.
