On our program today, our guests are:
  • Lia Tarachansky, director of the film On the Side of the Road that tackles the way the Nakba – the heritage of the Palestinian defeat in 1948 – is perceived in Israeli society today.
  • Prof. Motti Regev, a cultural sociologist and head of the Department of Literature, Language and the Arts at the Open University, talks to us about his new book Pop-Rock Music: Aesthetic Cosmopolitanism in Late Modernity and about the historical event of Pop-Rock music, in Israel and elsewhere.
  • Abigail Green, tutor and fellow in history at Brasenose College, Oxford, talks to us about Sir Moses Montefiore – the great Italian-British-Jewish philanthropist and virtually the first-ever world Jewish leader.
