The Executive Council of Australian Jewry has written a further letter to multicultural broadcaster SBS  expressing concern at the station’s marketing of the DVD of “The Promise”…a drama series based on the Israel-Palestine conflicts of both today and during the British mandate.

SBS has announced that the DVD will be available from February 8.

J-Wire has published in full a complaint about the 4-part series sent to the SBS ombudsman from the Executive Council of Australian Jewry

Sources within the ECAJ have confirmed that it has sent a follow-up letter to SBS calling for the proposed sale of the DVD and other forms of promotion of the series not to go ahead, at least until the SBS Ombudsman has made a decision about the ECAJ’s complaint.
