JBBC MEMO 88

recently, on channel 4 tv:
The Rothschilds (47 minutes, part of The Aristocrats series)
available online (until 23rd june) at http://www.channel4.com/programmes/the-aristocrats/4od#3524793

"The Rothschilds are the most famous family in the world, known for being enormously wealthy and enormously private, fuelling endless speculation about the real extent of their power.
Waddesdon Manor, the ultimate Rothschild house, is now owned by the National Trust, but the Rothschilds still control and pay for it.
At the helm is one of the most influential men in the country, Lord Jacob Rothschild. With a huge fortune, a run of high-profile achievements and a lineage stretching back two centuries, he would appear to be the quintessential aristocrat.
But the notoriously discreet billionaire claims his family are not aristocrats. He even describes the Rothschilds as 'nouveaux riches'.
Jacob's daughter, documentary film-maker Hannah, provides an insight into how the Jewish Rothschilds were received by English high society in the 19th century.
The Rothschild way of inheritance has always played a key part in maintaining the family's wealth, and marks a very final point of difference from the British nobility.
Whereas aristocrats hand on all of their wealth to the first-born son, Rothschilds give it to the most able.
Now, Jacob has to choose between his four children
- banker Nathaniel, garden designer Beth, archaeologist Emily and documentary maker Hannah - to ensure that their influence, power and wealth keep growing."

this morning (thursday), 9.00-9.45am, on bbc radio 4:
Prophecy, with melvyn bragg, mona siddiqui, justin meggitt, and jonathan stökl:
this week's In our Time episode

"Melvyn Bragg and his guests discuss the meaning and significance of prophecy in the Abrahamic religions.
Prophets, those with the ability to convey divinely-inspired revelation, are significant figures in the Hebrew Bible and later became important not just to Judaism but also to Christianity and Islam.
Although these three religions share many of the same prophets, their interpretation of the nature of prophecy often differs."

in view of yesterday's news item about the as yet unshown programme, i'll reproduce the following two memos of 25th and 30th april …

JBBC MEMO 66

this evening (thursday), 9.00-10.00pm, on bbc 4 tv (freeview channel 9):
Jerusalem: An Archaeological Mystery Story, directed by ilan ziv:

"The exile of the Jewish people has played a central role in Christian and Jewish theology for nearly 2,000 years, even being mentioned in Israel's national anthem and its declaration of independence.
But what if the exile never actually happened?
This documentary looks at new evidence that suggests the majority of the Jewish people may not have been exiled following the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD.
Travelling from Galilee to Jerusalem and the catacombs of Rome, the film invites us to review and rethink our ideas around the exile, raising important ethical questions about its impact on present-day Middle Eastern issues along the way."

JBBC MEMO 66A

CANCELLATION:

last thursday evening , 9.00-10.00pm, on bbc 4 tv:
Jerusalem: An Archaeological Mystery Story, directed by ilan ziv has been cancelled by the bbc

(for details, see JBBC MEMO 66)

A spokesman for the BBC today said they may show Mr Ziv’s programme in the future:

‘We originally acquired Jerusalem: An Archaeological Mystery Story to supplement BBC Four’s season exploring the history of archaeology,’ he said.
‘However, it was decided that it did not fit editorially so we did not show the programme as part of the season. Any future transmissions are under review.’
