Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

In 2020, BBC Milton Keynes recorded a news item with an Undertaker, dressed in full PPE, in regard to the pandemic and the projected deaths, predicted by Dr Neil Ferguson.

Can you confirm how wide the broadcast was circulated:
1. Was the content broadcast just in Milton Keynes?
2. If it was broadcast in other regions, which regions, be specific?
3. Was it broadcast on the national BBC News 24, if so, for how long, eg: two shows, two days, please be specific.
4. Please provide a working link to this footage, if one exists.
5. If no working link, please provide a copy of the footage.

Many thanks
Yours faithfully,

Tatt J
