Malcolm and Barbara: It rumbles on

Wednesday, August 1, 2007 by

Now Michael Grade’s released a statement.

I have today appointed Olswang, legal media specialists, to conduct a thorough, but speedy, investigation into the issues concerning the film Malcolm and Barbara: Love’s Farewell.

We need to discover why the film was originally understood to include the moment of death only for it to be established, after the intervention of Malcolm Pointon’s brother Graham earlier this week, that he died some days after the last scene in the film.

This is a very serious matter. I am on record as taking a “zero tolerance” approach to deliberate deceit in television programmes. I intend to establish the facts in this case as quickly as possible. I will publish the conclusions of the report and then take effective action as necessary.
