Murdoch ahoy! for Monday's Panorama probe

The BBC Panorama programme on Monday is billed as "Murdoch's TV Pirates."

According to pre-publicity on the Panorama website: "As Rupert Murdoch faces accusations of law-breaking and corruption at his British tabloid newspapers, Panorama reveals fresh hacking allegations at the heart of News Corporation's pay-TV empire.

"The investigation examines the role of former senior police officers in recruiting people to break the law - in order to bring down Murdoch's commercial rival."

The reporter on the programme is Vivian White.

  • Blogger Guido Fawkes reports that News Corps' lawyers have already sent out warning letters about the Panorama programme, to be broadcast on BBC 1 at 8:30pm, to the news media.
