Mishcon de Reya Partner and Deputy Chairman Anthony Julius last night featured on BBC One's Imagine programme: Shylock's Ghost. In the programme, presenter Alan Yentob travels to the ghetto in Venice with novelist Howard Jacobson to retell Shakespeare's most performed play, The Merchant of Venice.
Shakespeare's character, Shylock, remains one of the most divisive fictional Jews in history. Through a series of interviews, this programme examines the charge of anti-Semitism against Shakespeare, questioning how the moneylender from Venice become such a useful propaganda tool in Nazi Germany.
