      ... BBC lawyers consider formal appeal over court ban on riots drama. Lawyers ponder challenge to ruling preventing docu-drama from being broadcast 'by any media until further order'. Kirsty Hughes, chief executive of Index on Censorship, said: "This is a disturbing move. The Reading the Riots project gives a valuable insight into the events of last summer in England. As we approach the anniversary of the riots, it is important that broadcasts and discussion about the events are allowed to take place. Censoring television programmes is not in any way helpful to our understanding of the important issues and factors underlying the disturbances."
