Video: Protest over BBC show guest

Protesters besiege BBC as leader of far-right party is invited to take part in TV show.

    Protesters clashed with police on Friday outside the BBC's Television Centre in London.

    The demonstrators were outraged that Nick Griffin, the leader of the far-right British National Party, would be taking part in a political discussion programme.

    Opponents say extremists views should not be allowed on the public television, but the BBC says it has a duty to defend freedom of speech.
