Glimpse of upcoming BBC programme on Israel

Ahead of tonight’s BBC Two programme “Israel: Facing the Future” (scheduled at 21:00 GMT), the BBC News website has published a feature under the title “Israel at 65: What does the future hold?” written by the programme’s presenter John Ware. A filmed excerpt from the upcoming programme appears in that article and also separately on the BBC News website under the heading “Israel at 65: John Ware gets a glimpse inside an Orthodox religious school“.

The first sentence of the above synopsis would suggest that the BBC is having trouble distinguishing between the minority Haredim and other groups which define themselves as ‘religious’ in Israel. Hopefully the programme itself will be more accurate.
