Complaint We received complaints from viewers who were unhappy that Public Enemies was replaced in the schedule by the Panorama Special - Stephen Lawrence: Time For Justice The BBC's Response The murder of Stephen Lawrence is a high-profile case and we felt it was in the public interest to screen the Panorama film on the day the verdicts were announced. The drama, Public Enemies, could be delayed until the following day but the Panorama programme was highly topical and due to public interest in the Stephen Lawrence murder case we wished to broadcast it that night.
