Have been re-reading Jeremiah in the Old Testament and watching Peter Kosminsky’s bold The Promise drama, I thought it worth revisiting something a little more light hearted — my exclusive feature on the making of The Infidel. As writer David Baddiel put it: Imagine if Homer Simpson were a Muslim, who finds out he’s actually Jewish. The piece reveals Baddiel’s love of “swap’ movies, such as Trading Places and Big, goes into rehearsal with Omid Djalili playing Fagin in Oliver! in the West End, and features Richard Schiff’s views of Islamophobia in the last US presidential campaign.
The piece originally aired in July 2009. You can see it on the C4 News website here.
