‘The Ambassador’s Last Stand’ – A forthcoming BBC TV documentary on the Craig Murray election campaign against Jack Straw 3


The date and time of the broadcast has now been changed by the BBC. Please see the revised information below:

On Wednesday September 21, at 7.00pm, BBC 2 will be showing ‘The Ambassador’s Last Stand’, the story of the Craig Murray election campaign against Jack Straw in Blackburn, and the reasons for it. More than just a nostalgic look back ‘ it raises issues of the alienation of Muslims through New Labour foreign policy. In the wake of the London bomb attacks these issues are of continuing and urgent concern.

There appears to have been a degree of debate within the BBC about whether to broadcast this programme, perhaps reflected by the decision to change the broadcast day to midweek and the time to coincide with Channel 4 news! We are sorry for the change in information but, as you will understand, it was outside of our control.
