for forthcoming uk programmes of jewish or israeli interest

BBC pre-Easter trailer

this morning (monday 23rd), 7.59-8.00am, on bbc radio 4, and on over a dozen other occasions at various times over the next few days
bbc traditional pre-easter trailer (for crossing continents) …

(soothingly, to a background of Brahms’ Lullaby …)
(John Humphries: 1:59:02) “This week, Radio 4 goes to a troubled part of the world in search of music …”
(Unknown female announcer: ) “Gaza’s only grand concert piano survived the bombing in last years’ war. In the first of the new series, Crossing Continents has exclusive access to the story of its restoration, and how music is being used in schools to help traumatised children.”
(Palestinian child announcer, Sara Aqel: ) “Music might not build you a house, or might not give you your loved ones back, but it makes you feel better.”

this repeated trailer gives a totally different slant from the description on the programme page, which talks about “islamist rulers” banning music from public performances and from schools

(if you miss it, available eg from 1:59:02 to 1:59:45 at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05mqpg8)
