Notes A Feature Program on Eilat (narrative only)

Eilat, while it has a history that goes back to biblical times, at one point had been abandoned for centuries and remained so until Israel hoisted its flag in 1949. At the time of this broadcast in the 1960's, the population had grown to 14,000 inhabitants. Interviews are conducted with residents and merchants about lifestyles and the overall excitement of the city at the tip of the Negev Desert with the 50 or so countries now represented in Eilat's population.
