    Various sightings of a clapperboard throughout this clip tell us that the filming was for an edition of the Thames Television current affairs programme "This Week" called "Israel". Filming took place on 20 October 1973.

    The footage MAY indeed, then, show wounded soldiers from the Yom Kippur War, which ran from 6-25 October 1973.
