Thrust SSC - Interesting Correspondence

Email From Chris Sheldrake

BBC Coverage Today Programme Friday 2nd November

I and millions of other listeners have just heard a totally negative report on your progress in Jordan.

The reporter completely failed to explain why your run was halted yesterday and ridiculed your efforts.

There was also a comment from John Humphries: "Why do we need a new land speed record anyway".

I suggest you contact the BBC and put them right on a few things.

Why can't the BBC support a great national project like yours? They seem to relish in putting down anything in which we can have pride.

Keep up the good work. Their obvious ignorance of the technical achievement and difficulties you have already overcome is a reflection on them and not on the team.
