The Church of Scientology’s wrangle with the BBC over last week’s Panorama investigation into its activities has reached north of the border, with a number of journalists having received a DVD in the post from it, accompanied by a letter setting out supposed examples of ‘repeated failure’ of the Corporation’s producers and executives to adhere to its own guidelines.
The DVD came from ‘Freedom Television’ and contained the documentary, ‘Panorama Exposed’, which claims to depict 154 alleged violations of BBC regulations, plus those of broadcasting regulators, Ofcom, as well as a rebuttal of Panorama journalist, John Sweeney’s investigation.
