Bafta nomination for Holocaust DVD
AN EDUCATIONAL DVD to teach children about the Holocaust has been nominated for a Bafta (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) award.
The interactive Eyewitnesses Remember the Holocaust DVD has been shortlisted in the Learning Secondary category at the Academy Children’s Awards, which celebrate the best of children’s film and television.
The DVD was produced by the Holocaust Educational Trust and the University of Southern California Shoah Foundation Institute for Visual History and Education.
There were also several Jewish winners at this year’s Emmys, which took place on Monday in New York.
Stephen Fry was awarded best documentary for The Secret Life of a Manic Depressive in which he spoke frankly about his own bipolar disorder as well as speaking to others affected by the condition.
The best arts-programming Emmy went to Simon Schama for Power of Art: Bernini, about the baroque sculptor.
There was also success for Libby Goldstein, who picked up an outstanding-casting award for comedy series Ugly Betty. DANA GLOGER
