Balance on Channel 4
I take a special interest in Ofcom's largely damning verdict on Martin Durkin's Great Global Warming Swindle (Report, July 22). I presented a programme for Channel 4 entitled God Is Green three weeks before. On the basis of that, I was invited to an Al Gore training day in Cambridge two weeks after the Swindle documentary was aired. As I entered the room, the former senator saw the Channel 4 ID on my conference badge and uttered words to the effect that I had a cheek showing my face there after all the damage I had done. Thankfully, his minders were able to put him right. He was not a happy man.
I wonder if "God is Green" was a balanced program - who cares? The idea of Al Gore being in a strop is joy enough.
