NEW Shows and more with BeamZ this week!
NEW Shows Travel The Ottoman Heritage of Israel Friday, December 2nd This is Anna again, greetings from Tel Aviv. I’m fascinated with the diversity of Israel, as well as with its best history. Throughout Summer 2022, I travelled to different towns of Israel to find the ruins of pre-Mandate times. This time I focused on the South of the country… I’m inviting you on my live-from-home show, to share with you the footage I made and the history I learned. We’re going to see ruins that date back to the period from 1400’s through the 1950's. We will stop by such towns as Ashkelon, Yavne, and Ashdod…
Snap it Up Game For the last couple weeks we have been facing some issues with the snap feature and we are aware that those problems make watching shows at BeamZ not that fun. It’s hard to be a live-streaming platform, and we have to deal with tech issues almost daily, but we promisse you, our team work very hard and we make an extra effort to deliver the best service to you beamers. So, with that being said, the snaps are back working! We did some tests this week and everything is back on track. There’s also a new update on the platform. When you take a snap during a show, while the snap is being captured the snap button will desapear from your screen. Like we said before, the snaps take about 15 seconds to process, so that’s the amount of time the button will vanish from your screen, but after it will appear normally and you will be able to take another snap. You can see below how it will look on your screen.
We appreciate everyone’s patience and we hope you have fun taking snaps and playing the Snap it Up Game!

History A walk back in the History of Spain Wednesday, December 7th After having showed you around Santander, Lillian figured you may want to understand the history of Spain better so that you can appreciate the country in-depth.

Through this talk Lillian walks you through the motions and help you see how Spain became the country that you know it as, while digging under the surface so you get the truth behind it.
