David Baddiel: Jews don’t count

9 p.m., Channel 4

“If we controlled things, wouldn’t we have better PR?” Sarah Silverman, David Schwimmer and Miriam Margolyes speak David Baddiel about modern antisemitism in this excellent documentary. He asks why the progressive left does not seem to see this as a form of discrimination, using examples such as Whoopi Goldberg who claimed the Holocaust had nothing to do with race (for which she apologized) and Labor MP Dawn’s failure to do so Butler to mention Jewish people when reading a long list of oppressed groups. Baddiel is passionate but even-tempered while dealing with more contentious issues, and he also meets up with Jason Lee to apologize for going “blackface” to pose as a footballer in the ’90s.

Hong Kong’s freedom struggle

9pm, BBC Two

The second half of a documentary about the 2019 Hong Kong pro-democracy protests features some truly chilling sequences, most notably a fight between police using tear gas and students wielding bows and catapults.
