An excerpt from Broadcasts of the Resistance, a documentary film about the Jewish underground radio broadcasts in Mandatory Palestine.
In an interview from the location of a historic broadcasting station, former announcers of Kol HaMachteret HaIvrit talk about the importance of Jewish militant group Lehis radio station. Geulah Cohen remarks that Lehi was a very isolated underground, and that the connection between the station and the listeners gave both parties the feeling that Lehi is a part of the people. Cohen assumes that the stations broadcasts expedited the formation of the Jewish Resistance Movement.
Natan Merfish, another former Kol HaMachteret HaIvrit announcer, reads out the historical report on the execution of two Lehi members – Eliyahu Hakim and Eliyahu Bet-Zuri.
