British Airways flight BA 149: did TNA provide information to the BBC about the release of these files or was there a Press viewing as these files were only released recently (in the last two days) and the BBC seem to know what was on the files before anyone could get their hands on the files.
Information not held.
I can confirm that The National Archives had no communications with the media regarding the release of files related to British Airways Flight BA 149. The files were released by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, so should you wish to find out more information regarding the release of these files, I suggest approaching them by contacting:
