[The curse of Lipstadt strikes yet again]

How jailed barrister was caught on camera

Bruce Hyman, "a top radio producer turned barrister" has been jailed for 12 months at Bristol Crown Court, making history as the first member of the Bar to be imprisoned for perverting the course of justice.

Character witnesses and friends who turned up to support Hyman included the actress Maureen Lipman and Professor Dame Hazel Genn.

So far the JC seems to be the only paper to have reported that Hyman produced a documentary on the Irving-Lipstadt libel trial. A November 2001 article by Hyman for the Evening Standard is reproduced on David Irving's website at

The paranoid style of Hyman's article, which begins "An hour into my meeting with the disgraced historian David Irving, I was afraid that my life might be in danger," is partly explained by one revelation from his recent trial, where it was claimed that "Hyman had turned to alcohol and cocaine after being rejected for a permanent job at his London chambers".
