A7 Radio's "Walter's World" with Walter Bingham

A really unusual and fascinating programme in which

Walter talks on TLV1 radio of Tel Aviv, openly and frankly about his colourful life.    

He is probed to reveal the real Walter. He talks about his name change, his military career, his achievements and how he got into acting and modelling as a sideline. You will hear how he prepared to come to Palestine as a teenager and what happened.  Then there are his innermost thoughts about life in Israel among our brothers and sisters from many parts of the world and his feelings about being a so-called Anglo immigrant and much more.

The programme ends with 25 minutes of comedy, to make you forget the realities of life as a Jew in today’s world and make you laugh.

I think you’ll want to hear about his 90 years of multifaceted life.

Walter Today

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.
