A corpse is fished out of a north London canal with stab wounds through the eyes. A gruesome opening: but the victim was a prominent member of the Hasidic Jewish community, and the cause of death one reserved by the Hasidim to punish "moysers", or informers.
This tale of ritual murder and the refusal of the tight-knit Hasidic community to co-operate with the police has already caused controversy.
Writers Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran (creators of Birds of a Feather and Love Hurts, here taking an unusual step into serious drama) and star Warren Mitchell have countered claims that it paints a negative picture of the Jewish community. All three are Jewish and argue that the story, although entirely fictional, is based on detailed research about the traditions and culture of the Hasidim.
Producers Sheryl Crown and Derek Nelson Director Philip Saville
Consenting Adults ?
Britain has the highest age of consent for gay men anywhere in western Europe, 21 years, while other countries range from 12 to 18. Should it be reduced? As Parliament prepares to debate the issue, Joan Bakewell talks to those who believe that the law as it stands encourages blackmail and the spread of Aids, and others who feel that it is fair for society to treat gay men differently.
