Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of British Broadcasting Corporation's handling of my FOI request 'Programmes which BBC Newsnight producer or staffer Lizzie Watson has been involved in'.

This is clearly a breach in transparency and the public have a right to know BBC staffers' links. If you or Lizzie Watson is unhappy with this, perhaps you need to go and work in a private enterprise. The BBC is a public body, funded by the public, and we have a right to know if a staffer is a lobbyist (in the broadest sense) too.

I want to know *now* when Lizzie Watson last updated her Details of Personal Interests (DOPI)and what these are?

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:
