Gideon Raff, creator and executive producer of hit Channel 4 series Homeland, knows that you don’t need to shoot, stab or dismember animals to produce one of the most capable fighting forces in the world. Having served as a paratrooper in the Israel Defense Forces before creating the hit TV series, he has firsthand experience.

After reading PETA’s exposé about the Ministry of Defence’s (MoD) participation in deadly animal-based trauma-training exercises overseas that would be illegal here in the UK, Gideon penned a letter to Secretary of State for Defence Philip Hammond urging him to switch to the high-tech human simulators that most military institutions use to teach life-saving skills.
