Leading Labour figure joins documentary to counter biased BBC Panorama

An MP who is a major figure in the Labour movement has volunteered to narrate a planned documentary programme refuting the claim by the BBC’s Panorama that the Labour Party is anti-Semitic – but only if the makers can crowdfund enough cash to film it.

As in the case of the actor who is also set to appear, this Writer is not at liberty to name the Parliamentarian who has come forward to appear in the factual film.

But – as in the case of the actor, his arrival on the project is likely to boost the documentary’s profile hugely.

So it is even more important that the film-makers raise the cash necessary to finish the project.

If you aren’t familiar with it: Writers from a range of independent media outlets have joined forces to produce a documentary in response to a BBC Panorama programme in which interviewees alleged that The Labour Party is institutionally antisemitic.

They believe the accusation to be totally unfounded – as does This Writer. I produced a series of articles disputing the claims of the documentary and have submitted a complaint to the BBC (which has yet to respond).

But they need funds to get their rebuttal in the can. The money will be used to buy equipment and cover travelling expenses, so film-makers can interview those who have come forward, including former BBC staff and Jewish Labour members who have a very different account from those shown on the Panorama programme.

Sadly it seems that Facebook has shadow-banned the film. This is a process by which the owners of a social media platform stop posts by a particular source, or about a particular subject, from being shared to new readers. In this case, it would prevent information being circulated to people who are likely to want to donate to the project.

So, please share this article yourself if you support the aim of the project.
