NE "The Lemon Tree" is a radio documentary featuring an Israeli and a Palestianian who both share claim to the same house. Last month it received the prestigious Overseas Press Club award for best radio story on Foreign Affairs. It was produced for Fresh Air by Homelands Productions, producers of other public radio documentaries. It is narrated by producer Sandy Tolan and uses excerpts from his conversations with Bashir, a Palestinian man, and Dalia, an Israeli woman, to tell how their 31 year friendship reveals much of the painful history of the last 50 years experienced by both Palestinians and Israelis. The story begins with Dalia knocking on the door of the home that used to be his, near Tel Aviv. The door is answered by Bashir. Originally aired 4/24/98. THIS CONTINUES INTO THE SECOND HALF OF THE SHOW. 12:28:30 FORWARD PROMO (:29)12:29:00 I.D. BREAK (:59)12:
