for forthcoming uk programmes of jewish or israeli interest

tomorrow afternoon (saturday), 3.30-4.00pm, on bbc radio 4:
Richard Wagner – Power Sex and Revolution (episode 2 of 2):

paul mason discusses the jewish nature of figure-of-fun beckmesser in die meistersinger …

“Die Meistersinger reveals dark seams beneath its surface: complex human relationships and an attitude to nationalism and race which raise fundamental questions about the validity of Wagner’s very artistic mission.”
