Maureen Lipman introduces The Chaim Bermant Award for Journalism, produced for Jewish Book Week 2015. The award is presented in memory of the late journalist and author, at once “Anglo-Jewry’s voice of conscience” and, by his own typically tongue-in-cheek designation, “a licensed heretic.” Contributors are the judges: journalists Miriam Gross, Gerald Jacobs and Geoffrey Paul, with readings by Maureen Lipman.

Miriam Gross’s life casts a fascinating insight into the British establishment from an outsider's perspective.

Brought up in wartime Jerusalem, she was deposited by her parents, speaking no English, at the bohemian Dartington Hall School; and then continued her education at Oxford where she found her way into more glamorous academic circles.
