"I'm a jihadi, Daddy"
This evening I attend a viewing of a sparkling new print of one of my favourite Oakham Studios films.
Set amid the trad jazz boom of the early 1960s, it is nevertheless the hard-hitting story of a schoolgirl (played by the young Helen Shapiro) who is radicalised by a penfriend and eventually travels to Syria to take part in the armed conflict there.
I feel sure that ‘I’m a Jihadi, Daddy’ will win itself a whole new generation of viewers.
