Panorama: Golda Meir

on BBC One London

Television's top reporters close in on the most interesting topics of the day
Robin Day, Michael Charlton, Nicholas Harman, Alan Hart, Richard Kershaw, Robert MacNeil, Julian Pettifer

"If Israel had not been in trouble all the time, nobody would have known my name." But with trouble came fame and power, and at 73, a grandmother, and Israel's Prime Minister, Mrs Meir is one of the world's most powerful women.
Born Golda Mabovitch to poor parents in Russia before the turn of the century, her story is as dramatic and complex as the Jewish nation she helped to build. After years of political and personal struggle, she feels no debt to history. She kept no diary, has no plans for memoirs.
But tonight she tells her story to Alan Hart.
