Three questions remain unanswered after Kershaw's piece:
Why did Kavan drink champagne with the secret police after the revolution? Why did the secret police think Kavan was a collaborator from 1969-70? After that we simply don't know - the file was weeded in 1989 - but before the revolution. Why did he mislead the BCC - a body hardly made up of secret policemen?
On 5 March 1992, the BCC held that Mr Kavan misled the commission and annulled its earlier finding. It is now accepted that the Thames TV programme was accurate and fair.Reuse content
