: A Story of Our Time

The Seventh Day Recollections of the Six-Day War by some who took part
The Six-Day War between Israelis and Arabs began suddenly and ended quickly. Those who had fought, mainly young people, returned dazed and shocked by the revelation of what war really is. Some became compulsive talkers, reacting for themselves and their comrades scenes of horror or triumph; others remained silent and withdrawn.
In 1967 many of these experiences were recorded at kibbutzim all over Israel. Eventu. ally the dialogues were published in book form. The recollections of these young men and women engaged in a bitter and bloody war reveal a depth of compassionate experience common to all young warriors.
The book, now published in Britain, forms the basis of tonight's programme. Because the original recordings were in Hebrew, actors play all the parts.
The book abridged by TONY VAN DEN BERGH
Produced by ALAN BURGESS


Abridged By: Tony van Den Bergh
Produced By: Alan Burgess

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
