Aitken was the first person to be seen on screen from Yorkshire Television when it began broadcasting. In 1970, Aitken was acquitted at the Old Bailey for breaching section 2 of the Official Secrets Act 1911, when he photocopied a report about the British government's supply of arms to Nigeria, and sent a copy to The Sunday Telegraph and to Hugh Fraser, a pro-Biafran Tory MP. Aitken's favorable biography, Nixon: A Life, of former US President Richard Nixon, was published in 1993.
