Letter: Birt and Hussey threaten the integrity of the BBC

Sir: I know journalists tend to be preoccupied with affairs concerning other journalists, but there are times when they get things totally out of proportion.

The general public is not really very interested. It wants to see front page stories and leading articles devoted to matters of national and international importance, not comparative trivia. As your cartoonist says today: 'This John Birt business is getting out of hand.'

Yours faithfully,


Osmington, Dorset
