Israel today lives in a state of 'neither peace nor war.' 90 per cent of the revenue from their internal taxation goes into the defence budget, and the Israelis are more heavily taxed than any other nation in the world. They work hard to develop their small barren country, and they desperately need the aid and investment that Israel gets from Jewish communities in Europe and America. Why do the Jews outside Israel give, and where does the money go?
To find out The Money Programme followed Meshulam Riklis, an Israeli-born American millionaire, from New York to Tel Aviv. Riklis has been involved with the Jewish Agency which last year spent over $200 million helping Israel - more money than they were able to raise.

Steam shovels, Bulldozers, White Tape and Trees
'A big hole in the ground, people in their Sunday clothes, a wonderful parade of steam shovels and bulldozers' - one of the extraordinary happenings in a film about artists who use hillsides and coastlines and deserts to make their art-the story of 'land art' - from the White Horses we all know on the English downs to the Bulgarian Christo's recent last minute disaster with his project to hang a plastic curtain across a Colorado valley.
The Savage God
Next week sees the publication of a book on the disquieting subject of suicide - why does this happen, what have been the attitudes to it in history and literature?
Al Alvarez, the poet and writer, author of The Savage God, talks about Sylvia Plath, one of the greatest poets of our time, whose death is the subject of the prologue of his book; and some of her poems are read by Sheila Allen.
