Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

On 1 September 2023, BBC Radio 4 More or Less programme purported to answer the question presented in the programme description "we look at a viral claim that 1 in 73 people who received the Covid vaccine in England was dead by May 2022."

Various data were presented on the programme by an actuary, including comparing deaths of two different age-groups for the vaccinated and unvaccinated.

Please would you provide me the exact data that was used in the programme, including links to where it was obtained. For the links, please ensure they are to the exact data used. If the links you provide are to a general database, then please provide me with the exact search used so that when entered I am able to obtain the same data that was used in the programme to support the conclusions presented.

Yours faithfully,

Madge Figg
