The request was refused by British Broadcasting Corporation.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

I request all documents with names of guests on BBC Newsnight programmes broadcast between 1 January 2014 and 31 August 2014 and their nationalities and ethnicities to the extent that the BBC has such information. When I refer to "guests" I am referring to those persons who interact with the Newsnight presenter(s) either in the studio or via telelink, including interviews recorded in advance rather than live. I am not referring to persons appearing in reports from correspondents.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Cannon
