Part 1:

Following Ariel Sharon's death, there has been much biased criticism and praise of his actions. So now it is time to bring you a fair and balanced assessment of the life and times of Ariel Sharon, including the mistakes, as seen by his former Foreign Policy Advisor Ambassador Danny Ayalon, who talks with Walter.

Part 2: 

Growing Corals in The Arava Desert?

And how Israel makes the desert bloom.

This has to be seen to be believed. Your next tooth implant may be seated on home grown coral and your bone graft may be made from it.

And: Strawberries growing from a hanging wooden lattice in the arid climate of the desert and more. Walter saw it all and you can hear about it in this programme.

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.
