Newsnight on Scientology 1996

Posted by Martin Poulter on 12 March 2008

A report from Jeremy Vine over the 1996 controversy when the Church of Scientology was allowed to advertise on British television:

…featuring a much younger and less articulate me failing to explain Internet censorship.

The live studio discussion that follows is juicy viewing for when David Mellor MP calls Scientology president Heber Jentzsch “this deeply sinister person with a combination of soft blandishments and underlying threats”. Thanks to Steve for help getting this online!

    Cracking stuff Dr. P – just a shame you were a few years too late with that New Romantic haircut 😉 Though from watching the follow up studio discussion, I’m in the uncomfortable position of agreeing with David Mellor … I just feel dirty and wrong!

  2. Ditto on David Mellor. Never been a fan of the chap, but seeing this performance makes me cheer: he shoots, he scores!
