Dear Mr. Bowden

I note that the BBC has done the story if not in the way you desire.

I will not injunct editors to adopt a particular approach. They are competent to make decisions about how best impartially to cover stories. I am prepared to raise consciousness further on the issue by forwarding and discussing your concerns and observations with Television editors - including those in charge of the specific programmes you mention.

I have spoken to you at length on the phone about your original correspondence.

Yours sincerely

Mark Damazer
Assistant Director, News
