Baddiel: Jews Don’t Count TV documentary will have ‘surprising’ differences

David Baddiel has insisted a new television documentary based on his acclaimed Jews Don’t Count polemic will offer “surprising” differences from the book.

The comedian and author is currently filming part of the 75 minute long documentary for Channel 4 in New York and reveals it will “have many other voices apart from my own on it.”

The programme, which is set to be aired in the autumn, is being made by presenter Louis Theroux’s production company Mindhouse.

Baddiel told Jewish News: “I’m somewhat constrained by Channel 4 at the minute, but one thing that will be different is it will have many other voices apart from my own on it, including some surprising ones, discussing the issue with me, some of them agreeing, some arguing.

“I might even use the word Talmudic. If I’d read the Talmud.”

As a book Jews Don’t Count was widely praised for its assessment of how anti-Jewish racism was often over-looked by those who considered themselves anti-racists.

In an age of identity politics, Baddiel argued that in some cases Jews were overlooked as being a minority.

Describing himself as a Jewish atheist, Baddiel has also defiantly removed himself from any involvement in the Israel/Palestine debate.

Jewish News first revealed plans for the television version of Jews Don’t Count in an interview with Baddiel and his older brother Ivor in April.
