for forthcoming uk programmes of jewish or israeli interest

yesterday morning (tuesday 20th), 7.50-8.00am, on bbc world service radio (freeview channel 710 or 107)
the controversial ‘god of vengeance’ (in the witness series)

In 1923 the entire cast of a Yiddish play was arrested in New York and charged with staging an immoral performance.
Written by the celebrated Polish-Jewish writer Sholem Asch, ‘God of Vengeance’ is set in a brothel and deals with themes such as prostitution, religion and corruption.
David Mazower, the playwright’s great-grandson, speaks about the controversy.”
