the jc used to have a column giving us a heads-up of tv and radio programmes of jewish interest: let's re-start it online

JBBC MEMO 35

this evening (thursday), 9.00-10.30pm, on bbc 4 tv (freeview channel 9), The Holocaust and my Father:

'My siblings refused to open my father's memoir after his death', recalls filmmaker David Fisher. 'I opened it, uncovering his demons'.
Fisher's father Joseph, a Hungarian Jew, was interned in the Gusen and Gunskirchen concentration camps in Austria during the Second World War.
His memoir detailed the horrendous ordeal that he survived and prompted David, dragging his reluctant siblings along with him, to re-trace their father's footsteps. This resulting film is a bittersweet account of their journey into their father's past.
(originally screened in new york in september 2012 as "Six Million and One", see also http://forward.com/articles/162941/six-million-and-one-documentary-and-a... and http://blogs.artinfo.com/outtakes/2011/11/14/idfa-prisoner-67656-six-mil...)

The story of Prince Philip's mother, born in Windsor Castle, stone-deaf but who by the age of 21 could lip-read in three languages, who fled revolution in Greece, suffered a breakdown, was treated by Sigmund Freud, hid Jews from the Nazis, founded her own religious order, lived as an orthodox nun in Athens and in Buckingham Palace, and was buried on the Mount of Olives.
