Radio Four Megrahi programme
The topic for the edition of BBC Radio Four's The Report to be broadcast on Thursday, 16 September at 8pm is "the release of Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi". I agreed to be interviewed for this programme on condition that it concerned itself not merely with the circumstances of his release but also with the circumstances of his conviction. This condition was accepted and I estimate that 95 per cent of the interview of more than one hour that I gave related to the investigation, trial and conviction, rather than the release. But it's all in the editing, of course.
