For this, the 500th weekly Walter’s World programme, Walter travelled around the country to bring you a small glimpse of how this war has changed the priorities of the nation.  

He visited the wounded in one of our largest hospitals and got the views of parents. He also saw the many Arabs from Gaza and Hevron who are being treated there and heard what one of them had to say.  

​He reports on some of the work at the Homefront Command Headquarters in Ramle and their dedicated staff and listened to the Colonel of the Command Centre covering Ashdod, Ashkelon and an area almost constantly under rocket fire.

Walter also experienced the most extraordinary spirit and dedicated work of our civilians to collect pack and distribute parcels of necessities and thousands of TShirts printed with a Thank You message to our brave soldiers on the front lines.  How despite of the losses of our best young men, the funerals and Shiva calls, the country stands as one. A quite emotional report.

And more.

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.
