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.

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.
