BBC Continues Panorama/Scientology Promo [video]

Panorama Special: Secrets of Scientology WWP ~ We learn from our friends across the pond (because for some odd reason, BBC doesn't want us yanks to see these) that the BBC is still pumping out promos for their upcoming Panorama/Secrets of Scientology episode that'll air (over there) on Tuesday, 28 September @ 2100 hrs.
Reporter John Sweeney's last investigation into the Church of Scientology resulted in an explosive confrontation with church officials. This time, in a Panorama Special, one of those officials has turned whistleblower to help him reveal the dark secrets of the church, which boasts Hollywood A-listers Tom Cruise and John Travolta among its devotees.

Panorama - Scientology and Me [original]
If you're curious as to what all the hub-bub is about, through the magic of Google video, the original has been archived in a non-diced-up version:
(14 May 2007) John Sweeney investigates the Church of Scientology, endorsed by some major Hollywood celebrities, but which continues to face the criticism that it is less of a religion and more of a cult. Some former members claim the Church uses a mind control technique to put opponents at a psychological disadvantage. During the course of his investigation, Sweeney is shouted at, spied on, visited in his hotel at midnight and chased around the streets of LA by strangers in hire cars.

Thanks, Sponge.
