Letter: Lost children

Sir: Your article on Channel 4's autumn season (23 August) began with the claim that "posed" shots of child beggars would be broadcast in my documentary series Staying Lost.

No faked or "set up" shots were ever recorded. A High Court judge accepted our denials of Nottingham City Council's allegations when he ruled last April on the question of the welfare of the children appearing in the series.

Staying Lost will give runaway children a voice. It will expose a shameful world. Perhaps then we can address the real issues about the care of children in Britain.
