Letter: Report on Aids film shows bias

I WISH to register my anger at the bias in your article 'BMA under fire over Aids film' (23 May). Are you aware that the two people who denounced our BMA award for our Dispatches programme, 'AZT - Cause for Concern', are from organisations that have received money from Wellcome, manufacturers of AZT?

Comments about Meditel's work such as 'one-sided', 'tendentious', 'misleading' and 'serious shortcomings as a factual report' are a slur on our professionalism. We have won seven television awards, including the Royal Television Society Award in 1987 for our Dispatches, 'Aids and the Unheard Voices'.
