DOCUMENTARY: Geert Wilders: Europe's Most Dangerous Man?
On: BBC 2 East (2)    Date: Monday 14th February 2011
Time: 19:00 to 20:00 (1 hour long)
A profile of controversial Dutch politician Geert Wilders. The man with the shock of platinum blond hair is known for virulent anti-Islamic views which led to his being denied entry into Britain until he successfully appealed against the ban. The film follows him on the campaign trail during the 2010 Dutch general election. The leader of the Party for Freedom, now on the brink of real power in the Netherlands, Wilders is the first politician to stand trial on charges of inciting hatred because of his pronouncements on Islam and his call for a ban on the Qur'an. With anti-Islamic and anti-immigration parties on the rise in Europe, what makes him the poster boy of the far right? Members of the international anti-Islamic network who support him are also interviewed about their leader in this documentary by Bafta-winning film-makers Mags Gavan and Joost van der Valk.
DOCUMENTARY: Dispatches
On: Channel 4 (4)   
Date: Monday 14th February 2011
Time: 20:00 to 21:00 (1 hour long)
Lessons in Hate and Violence.
Dispatches goes undercover to investigate allegations that teachers regularly assault young children in some of the 2,000 Muslim schools in Britain run by Islamic organisations. The programme also follows up allegations that, behind closed doors, some Muslim secondary schools teach a message of hatred and intolerance.

The first program covers something difficult to deal with.
The second, well if it were up to me, no faith school, not one, not of any faith would receive state money, I hate knowing that the state (that's me and you) pay to indoctrinate children into what I see as archaic, anachronistic and frankly divisive beliefs of ancient myths.

Re: Dont Miss these tv programmes

Both appear to be about the same thing: The muslim thing. I have no problem with people having different religions but I do have a problem with them coming to our country and then preaching hatred towards us and our neighbouring countries.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Dont Miss these tv programmes

Be interesting to see what action (if any) is taken regarding a teacher beating children.
If this happened in any English school the teacher would lose his/her job and possibly end up in jail.
I recently recall one school assistant telling a pupils parents that he was being bullied. The outcome was the loss of her job, fortunately this was reversed on appeal.
