The film about Jeremy Corbyn Glastonbury Festival tried to ban is now to be made available online.

The documentary “Oh Jeremy Corbyn — The Big Lie”, which was launched in January 2023, claims that the former Labour leader was targeted by a coordinated campaign to undermine him, which, it says, included false accusations of antisemitism. 

Narrated by Alexei Sayle with contributions from film director Ken Loach, former Corbyn adviser Andrew Murray, Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi of Jewish Voice for Labour and many others, the documentary was due to be screened at last year’s Glastonbury festival, but was dropped by the organisers after they were hit by an online smear campaign accusing the film itself of antisemitism.

Producer Norman Thomas said: “After Glastonbury, the film was shown over 350 times in cinemas, halls, community centres and other venues across the country to thousands of people, despite attempts to suppress it.

“But demand to see the film is still growing so we are now making the film freely available online so that as many people as possible can see the truth about what happened to Jeremy Corbyn.”

He claims that events in Gaza have given the film a new significance.

He said: “Given Jeremy Corbyn’s longtime support of the Palestinian cause, Britain’s response to events in Gaza would be very different if he’d been prime minister. No wonder that powerful people here and abroad wanted to ensure he never came close to entering 10 Downing Street.”

The film is produced by award-winning, documentary maker Platform Films which is now working on a follow-up production, “Big Lie II”, which will focus on events in Palestine and their impact on British politics.

Platform Films has been making films since the 1980s and has produced programmes for the BBC and Channel Four.  When it goes online, ‘Oh Jeremy Corbyn’ will be added to the Platform’s YouTube channel. Mr Thomas said: “Here viewers will find a unique archive of over three hundred radical films about social, political and trade union issues, all of which are now all freely available.”
