Sir: For Susan Loppert (Letters, 20 April) and other readers who might be on tenterhooks, I can tell you that the BBC's Religious Programmes Department replied to Margaret Drabble's Open Letter to John Birt (11 April) within 24 hours of its publication. Our reply contained an unreserved apology for the delay in answering her original letter and a copy of the 'Thought for the Day' script that has caused her concern. Ms Drabble is now engaged in lively correspondence with the producer of 'Thought for the Day' about the issues raised by the broadcast.

Yours faithfully,


Head of Religious Broadcasting

BBC North
