As has received much attention in the press, in tonight’s Panorama, veteran journalist John Sweeney reports on the Scientology cult. In an interview on the Heaven and Earth Show, the editor of Panorama gives some background, describing harassment and intimidation techniques that were used against the BBC film crew. Scientology has made its own documentary attacking the BBC (Independent on Sunday coverage), and I expect these bizarre tactics will be the focus of the programme tonight.
Scientology is currently deepening its campaign against the men in white coats (psychiatrists): blaming them for everything from the Virginia Tech shootings to the Holocaust.
Loads of Scientology-related video clips on the Xenu TV blog.
Update, Tuesday 15th: the programme is currently available to view on the Panorama web site
