“I do not believe that a single frame of ‘Primark : on the Rack’ was not authentic. Evidence that Primark broke its own guidelines on outsourcing and employing children  was painstakingly assembled by some of Panorama’s most experienced journalists. This is confirmed in the Trusts findings.  But they also allege that some of the footage filmed by Dan McDougall was staged. I do not believe this. Dan is a highly respected and award winning journalist who has worked with national newspapers and broadcasters. I never had any reason to doubt his credibility and neither do others I have spoken to who work with him. I am very disappointed that the BBC Trust has chosen not to trust a Panorama team of such calibre.”  Tom Heap
