The Media Show’s Steve Hewlett highlights his part in the MI5 vetting of BBC story in The Observer today as part of talking about his life now he has a serious cancer diagnosis. This is the story that David Leigh, Mark Hollingsworth and I did in the Observer back in 1985. I remember sitting the pub with Hewlett as he told me he had been rejected for a BBC job clearly because of his radical politics as a student. Yet another example of a ‘threat to national security’ that has become a significant national figure. Add to that long list of MPs, thinkers and writers.
