Journalist's 'Panorama' outburst brings in 4.4m
An average of 4.4 million viewers tuned in to watch the half-hour programme, grabbing a 19.2% share of the audience at that time.
The ratings were no doubt boosted by the publicity surrounding Sweeney's 'outburst' towards a member of the organisation, which had also been posted on video clip website YouTube earlier in the day.
The show grew its audience from 3.9 million and a 19.1% share at 8.30pm to 4.9 million and 21.2% at 9pm.
The second most watched Panorama in the series, TV's Dirty Secrets, shown last month, received 4.1 million and a 17% share.
