Radio 4 denies sneaking out Kureishi drama

From Ben Dowell in Media Guardian (free registration required):
Radio 4 last night aired its controversial Hanif Kureishi drama Weddings and Beheadings, which describes the work of a cameraman who films the executions of western captives in Iraq.

A Radio 4 spokeswoman denied that it had "sneaked out" Weddings and Beheadings, which was due to be broadcast on Radio 4 last month, but was pulled at the last minute after the kidnapping of BBC Gaza correspondent Alan Johnston.

However, Weddings and Beheadings was dropped back into the Radio 4 schedule with only three days' notice on Sunday and was not featured in any daily newspaper radio listings yesterday.
