The Eurovision press pack and superfans are descending on Tel Aviv for the annual gala of glitter and Europop. But because it’s in Israel some of the focus will inevitably fall away from the songs and onto the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. Steve Holden is a music reporter for BBC Newsbeat, and in Tel Aviv for the contest. He joins the BBC’s Middle East Editor Jeremy Bowen to assess what difference, if any, Eurovision makes to such a long-running conflict. And voting in the Listeners’ Choice Award at the British Podcast Awards closes tomorrow!
