Excellent investigative reporting from Tom Pride.

Last year, BBC Panorama made an anti-Corbyn programme – Jeremy Corbyn Labour’s Earthquake –  about the rise of Jeremy Corbyn’s popularity in what was called a hatchet job by Corbyn’s team.

But the programme was not actually made by the BBC. It was made by a private production company called Films of Record whose managing director and executive producer is a man called Neil Grant.

Another anti-Corbyn programme was aired this week on a different channel – Channel 4’s Dispatches. The programme – Battle for the Labour Party – was so anti-Corbyn, it prompted a written complaint to the producer about the programme’s “innaccuracies” and “slurs”.

But the programme was not made by Channel 4. It was also made by exactly the same private production company – Films of Record – whose managing director and executive producer is still someone called Neil Grant.

Who is the managing director and executive producer, Neil Grant*?

Erm … just a former Brent East Labour Party chair who has had a 20-year political falling out with Ken Livingstone.

So no axe to grind there then.
