Interview with David Baddiel ahead of Jews Don't Count
We speak to David Baddiel about his new documentary in which he explores why, in his opinion, antisemitism isn’t considered, by the progressive left, as unacceptable as other forms of discrimination. Using examples from popular culture and theatre to football and politics, David asks why, at a time of extreme sensitivity about racism and discrimination to minorities, does there appear to be a lack of inclusion towards Jews? To explore this blind spot, David travels to meet a wide variety of Jews, including David Schwimmer, Stephen Fry, Sarah Silverman, Jonathan Safran Foer, Neil Gaiman, Miriam Margolyes, Howard Jacobson and Rachel Riley. David Baddiel: Jews Don't Count airs at 9pm on Monday 21st November.
