dr yasser abu jamei – mental health in gaza (interviewed by stephen sackur) (in the hardtalk series)

“HARDtalk’s Stephen Sackur speaks to Dr Yasser Abu Jamei, director of Gaza’s biggest mental health program. The past few days have seen rising tension in Gaza – Islamist militants fired rockets into Israel; the Israelis responded with air strikes aimed at the Islamic Jihad group. Hardly unusual and certainly not the stuff of international headlines but that in itself is telling. In Gaza conflict is the norm, so too an economic blockade that has long choked the economy.

What happens to a people living with trauma and collective despair?”

len mccluskey – general secretary, unite (interviewed by stephen sackur) (in the hardtalk series)

dame stephanie shirley – IT entrepreneur and philanthropist (interviewed by stephen sackur) (in the hardtalk series)

“Eighty years ago, hundreds of Jewish children were smuggled** out of Nazi occupied Europe by train in a covert** humanitarian mission which became known as the ‘kindertransport’.

Stephen Sackur speaks to Dame Stephanie Shirley, who was one of those children. She went on to live an extraordinary life of achievement and philanthropy, blazing a trail for women in business, science and technology.

What lessons can we learn from a woman determined to make the most of a life so nearly extinguished in childhood?”

[** I have no idea why the BBC, and Stephen Sackur, are saying this]

“There is plenty of disturbing data pointing to a significant rise in overt anti-Semitism in Europe and the United States. What are the reasons and how should the Jewish community respond? How much reassurance and protection is being offered to Jews whose past has so often been written in blood?
Is rising anti-Semitism a symptom of a liberal democratic order that is starting to crumble?”
