Olympics 2012, Mishal Husain’s interview with David Cameron, 12 August 2012


We’ve received complaints from viewers who were unhappy with Mishal Husain’s interview with Prime Minister David Cameron.

BBC Response

Mishal Husain’s interview with David Cameron was an opportunity to raise some of the issues surrounding the London 2012 games and also for him to give his views about the end of the Olympic Games and what they have meant for the UK.


We believe Mishal’s questioning was fair and, where necessary, she challenged the Prime Minister in order to keep the interview on track and relevant to the subject at hand.  For instance, she asked about where the future lies for British sport in terms of funding issues announced by the government, not just for Team GB but also sport in schools.


It was proper that Mishal Husain should challenge the Prime Minister on these issues of public interest.
