    The managing director of the ABC, Russell Balding, has refused to be swayed by the Israeli ambassador's effort to persuade it not to screen a BBC documentary that alleges Israel has weapons of mass destruction.

    The ABC plans to screen the program, Israel's Secret Weapon, on August21.

    The Israeli ambassador, Gaby Levy, met Mr Balding, the head of ABC television, Sandra Levy, and the news and current affairs chief, Max Uechtritz, in Sydney yesterday.

    Mr Levy said he did not expect the ABC to change its mind, but said he would keep a close watch on what he called its "developing anti-Israel culture".
