    A reality series that shed light on the lives of religious and secular Jews in Manchester has been nominated for a religious broadcasting award.

    Strictly Kosher, which was broadcast on ITV last summer to mixed reviews, is in the running for a Sandford St Martin Trust TV award.

    Director Chris Malone will find out if his programme has won on June 3 at a ceremony at Lambeth Palace, the London residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

    Also nominated in the television category is the 4thoughttv series on antisemitism, which appeared on Channel Four last year. The series included short films featuring Jews and non-Jews discussing the subject, including Israel supporter Richard Millett, Auschwitz survivor Yisrael Abeles and Aharon Cohen of the extremist Jewish sect Neturei Karta.

    In one of the clips, Birmingham teenager Eden Simones-Jones, who was physically attacked for being Jewish, commented: "If people say there is no problem with antisemitism, I think they should wake-up, open their eyes and really look about what's going out there."

    A radio programme about Eric Liddell, the Olympic runner whose story, along with that of Jewish athlete Harold Abrahams, formed the basis for the film Chariots of Fire, is also nominated.

    "The media play an incredibly important and challenging role in interpreting how the world is, and why it is this way," said The Rt Rev Nick Baines, who chairs the Sandford St Martin Trust. "They can increase understanding, tolerance and thoughtfulness in this increasingly busy world. Good religious broadcasting is crucial to this."
