The Promise

The Board of Deputies has received a response to its letter to Channel 4 regarding the recently aired programme The Promise.

A letter from Channel 4 Chief Executive David Abraham was followed by a more detailed response from Camilla Campbell, Head of Drama. Whilst Ms Campbell makes a resolute factual defence of the programme, we are concerned that she does not appear to fully address our concerns regarding the demonisation of Jews throughout the series.

The Board of Deputies will be conveying these concerns to Channel 4.
