Given by witnesses invited by the Inquiry, normally after they have made written statements. These sessions could be viewed live online and sometimes on television news services, and the video recordings are part of the archive. The statements were usually released to the public after the public sessions.
Broadcaster. Since 1987, a presenter on the BBC Radio 4 programme Today. He told the Inquiry that his role as presenter prevented him from commenting on any matters of current controversy. On media ownership, he thought it important that there was not a monopoly but made clear he would not comment on whether News International, for example, was too powerful.
