A File on 4 special series
The last of three programmes on ideals and reality in Israel,
40 years after the proclamation of the state.
The State of Siege
The heroic image of the Israeli Defence Force, sustained through four wars in 16 years, was tarnished by the invasion of Lebanon in 1982, and has suffered further since the unrest in the Occupied
Territories broke out six months ago.
Tudor Parfitt examines the pressures 40 years of conflict, tension and terrorism have imposed on Israel's citizen army, and on the society as a whole. Have those pressures produced a siege mentality which threatens any chance of peace in the Middle East? Producer STEPHEN SACKUR Editor BRIAN WALKER BBC Manchester

Although oratory is generally assumed to be dying, dead or irrelevant to the new technologies of communication, in fact hundreds of people are making speeches every day of the week. With politicians, lawyers, fathers-of-the-bride and aspiring after-dinner speakers, Britain can seem a Babel of public talk, some of which is oratory. Melvyn Bragg examines the state of the art.
In the first of five programmes, The Rt Hon Enoch Powell
Lord Jenkins of Hillhead and The Rt Hon Michael Foot , mp are among those who compare the parliamentarians of today with the giants of the past.
A series of eightportraits presented by Hugh 0' Shaughnessy 1: Nacha Guevara
When they put a bomb in the theatre I knew they were serious -so I left Argentina.
After eight years in exile, Nacha returned to Buenos Aires. made a triumphant appearance in the musical Eva, and became a star. She talks of her career as an actress and singer, the close and often dangerous connection between art and politics in Buenos Aires and her latest venture - directing and acting in Cabaret.
Friends and critics comment on her talent - 'she can be a witch, a lady, an urchin, a clown - anything she chooses'; and her character - 'anyone who can be a vegetarian in Argentina must be a rebel'.
