We received complaints from viewers who felt presenter Eddie Mair was too aggressive during his interview with Mayor of London Boris Johnson.
The BBC’s response
This interview looked at issues facing London and the wider political landscape, as well as looking towards this week’s BBC2 documentary about Boris Johnson. As the documentary is biographical, we felt it was appropriate to explore controversial episodes in the Mayor’s life. During the course of the interview Eddie’s line of questioning attempted to elicit responses to direct questions that were not being answered. We believe the interview was carried out in a fair and professional manner.
