Complaint
We received complaints in February 2019, following the third party release of secretly recorded material related to a Panorama investigation for BBC One.

Response
BBC Panorama is investigating Tommy Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon. The BBC strongly rejects any suggestion that our journalism is ‘faked’ or biased. Any programme we broadcast will adhere to the BBC’s strict editorial guidelines. BBC Panorama’s investigation will continue.

John Sweeney made some offensive and inappropriate remarks whilst being secretly recorded, for which he apologises. The BBC has a strict expenses policy and the bill in this video was paid for in full by John.
