The BBC’s Panorama documentary about the row over alleged antisemitism in the Labour Party has been nominated for a Bafta TV Award, the arts charity announced today.

The 59-minute programme exploring the Labour Party’s handling of disciplinary cases, made by veteran documentary maker John Ware, with exclusive interviews with party activists and officials, was broadcast in July last year.

Is Labour Anti-Semitic?, is up against two Channel 4 programmes and one ITV documentary in the current affairs category. They are Growing up Poor: Britain’s Breadline Kids, The Hunt for Jihadi John and ITV’s Undercover: Inside China’s Digital Gulag.

Other nominations in the category were given to Sky News and ITV News for their coverage of the Hong Kong protests and the 2019 general election and the Victoria Derbyshire programme for an episode about knife crime.

Helena Bonham Carter is in the running for best supporting actress in her role as Princess Margaret in The Crown. She is up against Helen Behan (The Virtues), Jasmine Jobson (Top Boy), and Naomi Ackie (The End of the F***ing World.)

Over in the single documentary and director: factual categories is Arthur Cary’s BBC Two documentary The Last Survivors which featured never-before-heard testimony from Shoah survivors.

The Bafta TV awards ceremony, to be hosted behind closed doors by Richard Ayoade, will be broadcast on BBC One on 31 July.

The event, originally due to take place on 17 May, was postponed amid the coronavirus pandemic.
