British Kindertransport escapee officially world’s oldest living radio host

Posted on July 21, 2017

A British-Israeli journalist who made aliyah in 2004 has been awarded a Guinness World Record as the oldest radio talk show host at the age of 93. Walter Bingham was acknowledged as Israel’s oldest field journalist in 2015, and is honoured by the Guinness Book of Records for his radio show ‘Walter’s World.’ His remarkable life saw him witness Nazi book burnings before escaping to England on the Kindertransport, where he lived in a kibbutz-type community before joining the war effort.
