Israel shuts down cultural TV channelmain
The Israeli government has pulled the plug on the country’s educational channel, known locally as החינוכית, after just over 52 years of productive broadcasting.
The channel was watched as much by adults as by children for its exceptional cultural content.
A weekly classical music programme, Intermezzo, with Arik Vardi was a model of its kind.
The channel will close down on August 15. Ours not to reason why.
