Dear Mr Fraser
When you approached me eighteen months ago, on October 20, 1997, you asked for my co-operation in your projected programme for "Storyville" about, you said, the suppression of free speech, with emphasis on the number of bans imposed on me by countries around the world.
You interviewed me late last year, and it struck me that your interview had no connection whatever with that topic. Last night, I am told, you screened on BBC2 at 9 pm a programme about the Far Right, in which you used this material, and which had nothing whatever to do with the subject you told me about. (I did not myself see it, but I have read the news reports).
I do not consider myself a member of the Far Right; and I would not have agreed to participate in such a programme, as was probably clear to you. Can you please elucidate when the switch was made in the project, and why I was not informed?
BBC "Storyville" Nicholas Fraser,
I have sent the enclosed letter to one of your producers, and I invite your comment on it too, please. It is a serious matter.
