Maybe Channel 4 could cover the human rights violations of 1984 in the future now that they met Sikh reprasentatives. They have covered human rights violations in Sri Lanka in a lot of detail.

It was a good start and the type of exposure that we need.

Channel 4 News won 'news programme of the year' at the Royal Television Society's journalism awards yesterday, ahead of Newsnight.

Channel 4 certainly have shown the mettle to deal with tough and sometimes controversial topics in the past without fear of upsetting governments and embassies, the Sri Lankan genocide being a prime example.
