Letter: After the bomb: which road to take if streets are unsafe?

Sir: With a justified reputation for radical, brave programming, Channel 4's postponement of the films Hidden Agenda and Angel, following the Warrington bombing, was particularly disappointing. Though civilised society must abhor political violence, I see no benefit in the ostrich approach to a conflict that suffers more than most from public ignorance. Channel 4 should realise that a mature democracy must not sacrifice education and understanding on the altar of public sensibilities. Leave that to the tabloids.

Yours faithfully,
