This is how Queen Victoria described her friend Sir Moses Montefiore, the Jewish philanthropist, the bicentary of whose birth occurs this year. Retiring a rich man at 40, he spent the next 60 years travelling the world with British Government support attempting to relieve the suffering of persecuted Jews in many countries. A big, impressive and devoutly religious man, he was the undisputed leader of British Jewry - he was Britain's first Jewish baronet - and was revered almost as a saint by many Jews abroad.
David Suchet and Miriam Margolyes read from the diaries of Moses and Judith Montefiore.
Others taking part include historians Lord Blake, Lionel Kochan, Raphael Loewe and the Bishop of Birmingham, The Rt Rev Hugh Montefiore.

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.
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.
