Email from Richard Deverell dated 30th January 2007


I do understand the issue and I have been thinking about this - I will speak to Anne Gilchrist (who runs CBBC) and Tim Levell (ed NewsRound) and get back to you.

But I don't mean to cause offence. I can assure you I am engaged with this issue and thinking hard about it. One concern for me is that we have to be very aware, here at CBBC, that we are introducing content into people's homes and some people have great sensitivity around particular subjects. We have to balance their concerns (whether or not we agree with them) with the wider need to ensure our content is diverse, fair and open-minded.

I will be back in touch soon.

Yours Sincerely,
