Alan Johnston Appeal

Category: In The Media,PersonalChrisM @ 10:42 am

If you’ve watched almost any news channels in the last month, you’ll have been hard pressed to have missed seeing reports on the abduction of Alan Johnston. He is the BBC’s journalist in Palestine , and in what looks to be a world first, BBC World (BBC 24 for UK viewers), Sky News and Al Jazeera English will simultaneously be broadcasting a program to raise awareness of Alan’s plight, and will apparently feature Mark Thompson (BBC’s Director-General) directly appealing for Alan’s release.

It is due to be simulcast at 14:30 BST (13:30 GMT) today.

[update] Just heard CNN are taking part as well
