Description
This Week TV documentary Death on the Rock, about the killing of three IRA members on Gibraltar, has provoked a backlash from Government politicians. Thames Television’s programme director David Elstein hotly denies the report of the independent inquiry led by Lord Windlesham into the programme, which has mainly refuted the politicians’ allegations, is a whitewash.
