The Twice-Promised Land


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
A File on 4special series The second of three programmes on ideals and reality in Israel, 40 years after the proclamation of the state. 2: What Is a Jew?
In 1948 the image of an Israeli was that of Jew, magnanimous in victory, who had a tradition of liberal views forged amid centuries of oppression in Europe. Today an Israeli is just as likely to be of African or Oriental origin, with strong religious convictions and without much experience of European-style democracy.
Of the two founding traditions, liberalism or religious attachment to the Holy Land, which has been the stronger survivor? Tudor Parfitt explores the theme. And how big an obstacle to peace with the Arabs, is growing religious fundamentalism among Jews? Producer STEPHEN SACKUR Editor BRIAN WALKER BBC Manchester
(Re-broadcast next Sunday)

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
