    Just in case people were interested and didn't know, there is a programme about the Hasidic Jew community in London on BBC 2 at 9PM. It is showing customs, people and a wedding taking place.

    The is some more info in an article on the BBC website.

  3. Great - thanks for that. Will put it on Sky+.
     
  4. I don't know what others felt, but I thought this was quite a disappointing programme, especially in terms of RE. Very little insight into women. It mainly concentrated on a figure who is really very unusual in terms of his life experience within that community.

  6. I think the matchmaker aspect was interesting, but it isn't 'the norm' to do this within the mainstream Jewish community and it would have to be put within its particular ultra-Orthodox context.

    I think it would be useful to show an orthodox Jewish wedding as a clip but the entire programme wouldn't be useful.

    I am still giggling about Gaby and Tikwah. They were such a normal couple and when Gaby said he eats whenever and Tikwah shouted 'that's why you're so fat' I found it hilarious.
