Who made the decision?

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, British Broadcasting Corporation should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

I write to enquire who made the decision not to include coverage of the 'Rolling Thunder' demonstration through Central London. I have always been told that the BBC News was free from government interference. Given the circumstances surrounding the persecution of Soldier F, I find it impossible to believe that a BBC executive made the decision to block the coverage. If I am wrong, please inform me of the name of said executive in order that I may write to him, sharing my dismay at another nail in the coffin of democracy in this country.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Brennan
