Panorama responds to criticism of "Euro 2012-Stadiums of Hate" program
Dear Sirs, I'm forwarding a response by our producer, Leo Telling, to an article currently on your website (and unsurprisingly being reprinted in Kiev, among other places) accusing our Panorama programme "Euro 2012-Stadiums of Hate" of being "dishonest".
It also makes unfounded allegations of us falsely using archive material and claiming it to be contemporary, something which would be a serious breach of our guidelines. You get pretty thick-skinned about these things on BBC Panorama but I have to say that I'm astonished that this was written without anyone contacting us or checking with us in terms of a basic right of reply.
I'd be grateful if you could find a place - online at least - for my colleague's response to the false claim that his programme and, by implication, those responsible for it are "dishonest."
