Ben Clarke made this Freedom of Information request to British Broadcasting Corporation

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was refused by British Broadcasting Corporation.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
Please can you give me the statistics for how many more programmes, documentaries and films have been about the subjects of the Soviet Union (especially the standard of life for the people living in it) and the Jewish Holocaust during the election campaign period. And a control comparison to the number about these subjects at the same time last year.
Also, how many times the standard of life people lead in democratic socialist nations like Scandinavia, Belgium etc has been the subject of your programming again comparing this 2019 election campaign to the same period last year.

Yours faithfully,

Ben Clarke
