I would like a copy of the original image file of the backdrop used on Newsnight on the 15th of March 2018 showing Jeremy against a Kremlin backdrop.

The request was refused by British Broadcasting Corporation.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
There is some contention about whether the image that included Jeremy Corby set against the Kremlin used in the backdrop to Newsnight on the 15th of March 2018 was doctored with PhotoShop. Some say it was distorted prior to being used on the studio's curved screen and others claim the distortion was caused by it being projected onto the screen. To give greater insight into this issue, please will you supply a copy of the original digital file that was projected onto the curved screen in the Newsnight studio.
Stephen Gavin.
