As rehearsals were about to begin, the BBC - under pressure from the Foreign Office - decided to cancel the project. General Zia-ul-Haq, the dictator at the time, was leading the jihad against the Soviet Union in Afghanista, backed by the USA. According to expert legal opinion, there was a possibility of a whole range of defamation suits from the head of state to judges involved in the case. Consequently, it was decided not to broadcast this hard-hitting and provocative play. The Leopard and the Fox presents both the script of the series and the story of censorship."--BOOK JACKET."
