Sky news?
The BBC is an organisation "WE" are forced to pay for by watching other channels.
The BBC being a VAST INSTITUTION is the precise problem. It was not designed to be "nanny"...I have to pay the BBC to watch re-runs of Bullseye made for ITV from 1982!

Though I've never watched it, you offer up Sky news as a (solitary) example of free Sky TV viewing...? Precisely how politically unbiased do you think that little number is from Murdoch?

Amongst other goals the BBC was designed to educate and stimulate the British Public and beyond. So, in some sense, it was both nanny and teacher.

You do not have to pay the BBC to watch re-runs of Bullseye (whatever that may be). The BBC offers a wealth of material for public consumption; you are not restricted to TV productions, new or old. The choices you make about what you watch, listen to or read are your choices. However, if you peruse the BBC web-sites you will find a massive archive of information covering myriad aspects of life.

A 40p per day tax, I you so consider it, is, in my opinion an absolute bargain. I would far rather pay for the upkeep of the BBC than fund munitions production or HS2 railway projects. We are all paying considerably more than 40p per day in recompense for the criminal activities of a mere handful of bankers, failed IT schemes and environmental cleansing.

You are free to gripe about the BBC if you must. But consider the pleasure it brings to millions of people young or old, day in, day out.

Sky is free of course. The BBC is not only the government propaganda arm but proven liars and well need we mention OPERATION YEWTREE?
I stand corrected if SKY is free. I've never seen a SKY channel programme on my list of Freeview channels. Then again I may have deleted it years ago.
The BBC is no more an agent of government than any other media company; Murdoch, it could be said, almost runs our governments directly. And, if not directly, they are too often functionally steered via his right-wing media juggernauts. Even "New" Labour's once leader, and our PM for years, was a ventriloquists dummy for Murdoch's personal politics.
The BBC has been a vast institution for decades. Given the prevalent misogyny of a patriarchic population it was bound to have some bad apples in its baskets. Then again, the same could be said for religious and charitable organisations. "Proven liars" is a term applicable to every corner of every organisation. So, why single out the BBC?

You love the BBC you pay for it through subscirption, I don't pay Ford to drive a Ferrari, I don't pay Warbutons to eat Hovis yet I have to pay the BBC to watch re-runs of Bullseye made for ITV from 1982!

Loved the first three but the the latest one has just 'jumped the shark' imo
I don't know, the last episode of series 3 did get a bit far fetched, I enjoyed last nights episode and it will depend on where it goes now as I think the tables might turn.

I agree with you on S3 but the end of last night's episode was a bit much but yeah, it won't stop me watching to see how it unfolds

Thanks for the copy and paste of quotes taken out of context from https://biasedbbc.org/quotes-of-shame/ - now that's a really objective and unbiased website isn't it!

Try this to understand the importance of context: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrmgwK5oPFM
In Their Own Words
When people ask for evidence of an institutional Left-wing bias at the BBC, this is the place to go for evidence. Out of the mouths of Beeboids….

The BBC is “a publicly-funded urban organisation with an abnormally large proportion of younger people, of people in ethnic minorities and almost certainly of gay people, compared with the population at large”.

All this, he said, “creates an innate liberal bias inside the BBC”.

–Andrew Marr

“It’s a bit like walking into a Sunday meeting of the Flat Earth Society. As they discuss great issues of the day, they discuss them from the point of view that the earth is flat.

“If someone says, ‘No, no, no, the earth is round!’, they think this person is an extremist. That’s what it’s like for someone with my right-of-centre views working inside the BBC.”

– Jeff Randall, former BBC business editor

By far the most popular and widely read newspapers at the BBC are The Guardian and The Independent. ­Producers refer to them routinely for the line to take on ­running stories, and for inspiration on which items to cover. In the later stages of my career, I lost count of the number of times I asked a producer for a brief on a story, only to be handed a copy of The Guardian and told ‘it’s all in there’.

– Peter Sissons, Former BBC News and Current Affairs presenter

“In the BBC I joined 30 years ago [as a production trainee, in 1979], there was, in much of current affairs, in terms of people’s personal politics, which were quite vocal, a massive bias to the left. The organisation did struggle then with impartiality. And journalistically, staff were quite mystified by the early years of Thatcher.

“Now it is a completely different generation. There is much less overt tribalism among the young journalists who work for the BBC. It is like the New Statesman, which used to be various shades of soft and hard left and is now more technocratic. We’re like that, too.”

– Mark Thomspon, former BBC Director General

“I do remember… the corridors of Broadcasting House were strewn with empty champagne bottles. I’ll always remember that”

– Jane Garvey, Radio 4 presenter, recalling Tony Blair’s election victory in 1997

I absorbed and expressed all the accepted BBC attitudes: hostility to, or at least suspicion of, America, monarchy, government, capitalism, empire, banking and the defence establishment, and in favour of the Health Service, state welfare, the social sciences, the environment and state education. But perhaps our most powerful antagonism was directed at advertising. This is not surprising; commercial television was the biggest threat the BBC had ever had to face.

– Sir Antony Jay, former BBC producer and creator, inter alia, of “Yes, (Prime) Minister”

“Liberal sceptical humanists tend to dominate television”.

The “default position in broadcasting” – when covering issues such as gay marriage and the Roman Catholic position on IVF – revolved around human rights, and that opponents should not be treated as “lunatics”.

“All I’m saying is, if you have at the centre of News an editor, he could explain why people in particular areas…are motivated, why they behave as they do and I think that would just increase understanding.”

– Roger Bolton, Radio 4 presenter and former head of Panorama and Nationwide

“And, in the tone of what we say about America, we have a tendency to scorn and deride. We don’t give America any kind of moral weight in our broadcasts.”

– Justin Webb (pg. 66), Today presenter and former BBC North America editor

“We need to foster peculiarity, idiosyncrasy, stubborn-mindedness, left-of-centre thinking.”

– Ben Stephenson, BBC controller of drama commissioning

So we fully pay for something with our Tax/license fee and then once it's complete we can then buy it!
I really hate the BBC I don't like having to fund a system that is full of Private School Kids!
Yes I've done a lot of work with the BBC and it is sickening how self cultured it's staff are.
Don't forget the twisting / falling to report news accurately (or at all) for their own gain.
Care to give some examples of that, backed up by evidence? Or are you thinking about the arch-manipulators UKIP and Donald Trump?
Nothing to do with either of those two, was going on way before they even came into the picture.
Still no evidence then?
Plenty but I'm at work and don't have a hour to do a paper for you which frankly you can find out yourself.
Just the usual Trump-style evidence then. A load of fatuous claims, but not a shred of evidence to support them.
What hope does this country have when people can't even do their own research. Yet insist on using current events to attempt to substantiate their own feelings. Couple that with questioning someone's honour and credibility it's a sad day for humanity.
There's nothing to research. "Don't forget the twisting / falling to report news accurately (or at all) for their own gain." is your statement about the BBC and you've failed to substantiate it in any way - unsurprising, because it's pure fantasy.

You're welcome to your thoughts - but it's a little unfair to attack the BBC (which has a statutory duty to be unbiased) from a biased standpoint which has no evidence to substantiate it. :|

Much better.
Shows games that you can get for free from European Satellites.
For example German Cup Quarter Final last night aired on free to view channel Das Erste in German which ANYONE in the UK can get if you have a satellite dish.
How many in the UK have a satellite dish facing the direction Das Erste is on?

Many people have a spare dish on the side of their house if they cancelled Sky.
It literally needs to be moved 9 degrees to the right if you look from behind it. Buy a cheapo receiver off the net about £30, and job done. Free Eurosport including the FA Cup. Free CHampions League and Europa League games.
ALL the F1 races for free on RTL.
Even the Klitscho v Jushua fight which is on Sky Box Office in the UK is available free to air on RTL
Source - http://liveonsat.com/los.other_boxing.php

You also get American footy when its on.
German footy on Sport 1, Das Erste and even the odd game on Sky Sports News Germany.

Darts on Sport 1, Snooker on Eurosport.

All free to air, and most in HD too.

Why pay Sky if you are a fan of any of these sports when you can get them for free, or even for less than £50 with a cheapo Satellite set from Ebay that you fit yourself.

And get yourself a double LNB and not only can you get the German channels (Astra), but you can get Hotbird at 13 degrees, and if you really clever get a treble LNB and get 16 degrees too, and they have alternative Champions League and Europa League games too!
http://liveonsat.com

Try it slightly better! Allsports!
Brown listings are encryption free.

There is also this; bit un related but same subject, satellite feeds

Good for a reminder
Maybe if you go to the pub, take your own drink or a friends house, watch it through a shop window etc then it's free
If you watch it at home legally then one way or another you or someone else pays !

many freebies are not free for all yet still seen as freebies

eg the o2 deals - eg the water company deals, gutted not to get my free 2 minute timer from united utilities - eg the free margarita pizza as no outlet convenient to me etc etc

A few new freebies down, there is a thread about Leeds V Sheffield Wednesday on Sky Mix, no one seems to be moaning that isn't technically freebie, as you'll need some sort of Sky subscription to access the channel.. Bit of consistency folks... :)
wish bbc would give up on football, or at least put it on another channel if they insist on buying a few games. It messes up the regular scheduling of other programs that people tune into every week/day like clockwork.
Thanks for all the comments guys, this has opened a can of worms!

What I was trying to get at was Pay per View was not required with BT/Sky or whoever to view these games. If you are not paying for a sports subscription, there are not a lot of games on terrestrial TV and maybe this would be welcomed by some.

Having posted some BT Showcase free games recently, I have not had comments like "it's not free, you have to pay for electricity and a TV to watch it on" for example. Similarly, it's a bit like a magazine that you may always buy and this month there is a "freebie" on the cover. What is free is open to interpretation I guess.

Well, I hope at least some people can use the info, and as always, criticism is not unwelcome, everyone has their own opinion on whether a post is useful or not. Hats off to bumbaclart for opening the debate.

TBH my decades of Tv licence fees paid to make the show, it should be free to all licence payers.
Totally agree with this. What an absolute **** waste of money the licence fee is. This TV tax needs to end.
The licence fee pays for the BBC to show the program, a production company owns the rights to the show though. Be careful what you wish for with the licence fee, the BBC is currently one of the only oppositions to the government, heaven forbid we end up relying on Sky News and Murdoch providing us with our "news"
The BBC is little more than the government's mouthpiece.
Thinking that it's not propaganda is part of it's power and influence.
There are news sources other than those controlled by Murdoch but unfortunately these are considered sufficient for the sheeple.
Scapegoating of Muslims and immigrants will continue as long as quality of living is in decline.
The media has a central role in supporting the rise of the right in the UK and Europe.
If history teaches anything, it's that we learn nothing from history.
Could you name some other news sources that aren't Murdoch or sympathetic to the right wing agenda? Apart from the Guardian, the Mirror and possibly ITV news, there aren't any (other than Channel 4 which is part funded from the licence fee too)
I think both the BBC and the government would disagree that the BBC is the mouthpiece for the government, the Tories hate the BBC and are desperate to control and limit its power. The BBC has a public service remit, and arguably espouses very British values (and British "propaganda", but that is the extent of it being a government "mouthpiece"
The BBC Board of Governors is appointed by the Government.
Journalists are also human beings with human weaknesses, deadlines, desire for attention.
News isn't news if it's to entertain and instil an ongoing sense of fear.
Fear = Control. "They" now monitor everything everyone looks at on the internet. Nice!
There are no facts, only opinions.
There is also the Economist, the New York Times, Haraatz, Wall Street Journal, or even Private Eye, Twitter and a variety of excellent bloggers across the world providing corroborated eye witness testimonies and entirely new kinds of datafeeds.
Thanks for your response though. I disagree with what I perceive to be your world view, however I still respect your right to exist. :{
Thanks but I was referring to UK based news sources. The Economist is hardly a news source, neither is private Eye (though I appreciate their value, esp Private Eye). I disagree though that there are no facts, only opinion. Facts are in my opinion what the BBC are actually very good at, and in my view they go out of their way to avoid opinion.
I studied the BBC's media role for my Degree by the way, and it's interesting that many scientific studies into the BBC found no convincing or consistent evidence of bias - perhaps a good example of this is that the left regard the BBC as a right wing government mouthpiece, and the right see them as a bunch of lefties!

The licence fee pays for the BBC to show the program, a production company owns the rights to the show though. Be careful what you wish for with the licence fee, the BBC is currently one of the only oppositions to the government, heaven forbid we end up relying on Sky News and Murdoch providing us with our "news"
The BBC is little more than the government's mouthpiece.
Thinking that it's not propaganda is part of it's power and influence.
There are news sources other than those controlled by Murdoch but unfortunately these are considered sufficient for the sheeple.
Scapegoating of Muslims and immigrants will continue as long as quality of living is in decline.
The media has a central role in supporting the rise of the right in the UK and Europe.
If history teaches anything, it's that we learn nothing from history.
Could you name some other news sources that aren't Murdoch or sympathetic to the right wing agenda? Apart from the Guardian, the Mirror and possibly ITV news, there aren't any (other than Channel 4 which is part funded from the licence fee too)
I think both the BBC and the government would disagree that the BBC is the mouthpiece for the government, the Tories hate the BBC and are desperate to control and limit its power. The BBC has a public service remit, and arguably espouses very British values (and British "propaganda", but that is the extent of it being a government "mouthpiece"

The BBC Board of Governors is appointed by the Government.
Journalists are also human beings with human weaknesses, deadlines, desire for attention.
News isn't news if it's to entertain and instil an ongoing sense of fear.
Fear = Control. "They" now monitor everything everyone looks at on the internet. Nice!
There are no facts, only opinions.
There is also the Economist, the New York Times, Haraatz, Wall Street Journal, or even Private Eye, Twitter and a variety of excellent bloggers across the world providing corroborated eye witness testimonies and entirely new kinds of datafeeds.

Thanks for your response though. I disagree with what I perceive to be your world view, however I still respect your right to exist. :{

Won't support the BBC bias and their propaganda, they still refuse any form of debate on their actions during Scotlands independence referendum, they won't ever get a penny from me, EVER
Well said! The BBC is nothing but a liberal Left wing propaganda machine extorting money from the poor, criminalising 200 000 people a year for failing to meet its rapacious demands and then paying its execs - many of whom are ex Labour party a small fortune.
Privatise it ASAP and see how long it lasts when it has to stand on its own merits.
And watch as adverts and programmes aping others successes destroy the last bastion of British television where programmes aren't delivered to the lowest common denominator and creativity is non existent.
I'll take a small amount of bias in their news reporting which I can easily ignore for the wealth of excellent programmes and radio shows they turn out - and how much they encourage new talent in drama and comedy.
Oh and childrens television that isn't short attention span rubbish.
Nice to know you do acknowledge that there is bias - BTW that bias is absolutely forbidden in the BBC charter, but no oversight body exists with the will to sort it out.
I for one though will prefer the views of Ex Director General Mark Thompson who admitted the BBC had a "massive Left wing bias". Try listening to radio 4 if you doubt it, currently with anti Trump & anti Brexit at the top of every program they broadcast.
Well actually I said 'I'll take a small amount of bias'. I'm not saying there is, but I would if there were.
I think actually it's more 'flat earth news' - the bbc has had its journalism scaled back so much to save money it's just regurgitating press releases.
My point is - don't destroy all the bbc and the enormous good it does us for high quality entertainment, educational shows, radio channels and the like just because of a possible bias in the news reporting.
Don't be so quick to destroy the whole thing with privatisation (which incidentally, seems to lead to huge amounts of bias - see Murdoch), just to attack a tiny amount of what they do.

Murdoch is fine - plurality in the media can only be a good thing bias to the right and bias to the left - make your choice as to where you take your entertainment. Currently we have a far left fake news purveyor which has been a malign influence on the country for decades.
I don't agree it produces high quality entertainment, those shows are very few & far between, and I think from your comment that you don't either. If it did produce something worthwhile then people would be only to happy to pay for it.
Why do you feel it is right that other people should be forced to subsidised something you want, but they don't? It's a little like being forced to have a subscription to the Guardian before you can read the Daily Mail !


I think it's very hard to argue it produces high quality entertainment.
Even in recent weeks, I've been enjoying Witless and Uncle, my son Danger mouse (I player being a fixture) and we've all enjoyed planet earth 2.
Oh and every morning we listen to 6music.

And it doesn't sound like you are happy to pay for it, but I'm hoping you're in the tiny minority.

Silly question but can you add two episodes to a basket or do you have to buy them individually therefore can only use the voucher for one purchase?

you have to buy individually but can make two purchases of £3 for free on an account using two different codes

code 1 is LOVE
code 2 is LOVEYOU
Silly question but can you add two episodes to a basket or do you have to buy them individually therefore can only use the voucher for one purchase?

When I got the email about this, it contained two codes: "LOVE", to use yourself, and "LOVEYOU" to give to 'someone special'. They both worked on the same account (last two Charlie Brooker's annual Wipes for £2.49 each).


Thanks got 2 shows using both codes

I don't know much about prison inmates but I doubt any of them will be studying. If they do, it will be a very small number.

I am not a fan of self learning so I think it is very difficult to do distance learning through the open university unless you have a lot of self discipline.

I would be interested to know if employers value open university degrees when it comes to employing graduates. I have never worked with anyone who is a graduate from the open university.

same here. Just became aware of this through adverts for season 2 so thought I would try to catch up on the first series, but its missing the first half of the season :(
When the freebie was created, they would have all been there. It took a while to become hot, there's only 4 episodes left (2 only tomorrow). I am rewatching and would have missed the end without this thread :) I started watching a couple of episodes in, and found it good. Series 2 is coming in Spring, perhaps there will be another set of repeats?


Edited By: EQL on Feb 11, 2017 23:45: Mentioning Series 2
Amazing Series ,very similiar to Vikings on Amazon , great acting ,superb battle scenes!

Well worth this price - great bit of kit - the one device I'd keep if I had to keep only one (also have two chromecasts and a fire stick).
Managed to pick up a Roku 2 from Currys today for £37-99p :)
The Amazon stick/box is a better proposition than it used to be, but so's Roku since they added Amazon. My FireTV stick is a nice device but it has always been very ropey as a Netflix player (weird freezing, Benny Hill speedups and/or juddery playback). Amazon also doesn't support Google Play Movies/TV (for your Google survey rewards etc.) or NowTV (Sky Atlantic/Fox). For me that rules it out as a sole device. If I had to keep only one I would choose my Roku 3, even over Chromecast (which doesn't support Amazon).

Roku have a ton of new products coming; I expect they are just judging that it's not critical to get a 4k offering into the UK all that quickly when Sky and Virgin barely have offerings and there's not a lot of content yet. If they're having problems with Roku 4, better to skip a generation here.

BigAde
I would hope that Roku aren't abandoning the UK. I'm not aware of any other box that offers the same breadth of services (although I think perhaps now that the Amazon box has improved it does). Not too worried about the Roku 4 - it's getting mixed reviews due to reports of noise and heat from the box... I'll stick with my silent Roku 3 for now.

Great deal. Yes, the radio shows are superior but there are some classics that stand the test of time : The Bedsitter was groundbreaking and is still rarely equalled.

I went to a radio re-recording of some lost Hancock scripts at the BBC .Galton and Simpson were in the audience and when they were introduced every person in the room were on their feet and gave them a two minute standing ovation.
Love the radio series, remarkable how it still stands up. Shame the whole gang didn't get to go over to the TV show.

What would be the minimum age for this game - my son is 9 - is the game geared more for teenagers/adults? Thank you.

Probably depends on the child for getting a grasp of the game style. Lot of strategy can be involved to play well. Most games are aimed at 10+ though. Im sure they'll get used with help easy enough though

When this comes out in UHD I know I will be forced to upgrade the BluRay player...

Or watch it free in 1080p on exodus via kodi.
Dvd ?
Maybe in the 90s
You know if you watch it streaming via Kodi it's been recorded from a compressed source, then compressed again to stream it to you via a plugin?
You could just stream it legally via the iPlayer... In 1080p.

Technically I Pay My Tv Licence So I Would Be Entitled To View The Material By Any Means, Plus, I Pay For Real Debrid Services Which Allows Me To Stream Far Higher Quality Streams, For Example, The Episodes I Normally View Are About 9gb Plus Add On To This When I Try And View 1080p through BBC I player I experience buffering through homeplugs, through real debrid services I have a far smoother non buffering experience.

Good point about i player though.

Thanks

not sure what your issue is ? The TV documentary was about a man & his organisation being inspired to serve selflessly by the principles his religion has taught him . Surely that's positive no matter who/what there religion is. Sounds like your not happy with the Sikh Religion , & I can't understand why ?
All I can suggest is maybe you should start a humanitarian charity , & hope that a TV channel wants to explore the principles that inspired u . If not stop, creating negativity & lets celebrate those who are trying to make the world a slightly better place!
ChrisOm thanks for such a great comment

I presume it was meant for Burmingum....

Your suggestion about starting an humanitarian work only works for those individual who are humble and do it selflessly and not get for recognition.

Rav has been now doing it for 17yrs and hardly asked for any thing back. He has been and still leaves his own wife and young kid/s to help others leaving his child/ren wonder where is dad. He could have just shut him self out the destructive world and stayed home and worked to provide for his family. And I would say it is not he choose it but destiny choose him seeing what he had in him.

Some one like me just looks at him and say good for nothing and has wasted half of his life, not seen his kids grow up, and that's why I haven't got up and did it myself.

His team are not good for nothing like me but professionals like Lawyers, IT Engineers Doctors who also are following the trailblazer Ravi. One day he could come home in a coffin and he knows it, I cant brave it, but that is his buzz.

I hate any sort of intolerance and wrong impressions given by some individuals be it who ever.

There is a post on Mahabhart given here and the OP commented about nudity and I was compelled to leave a comment about who this about, the Great Lord Krishna.

ChrisOm once more thanks and Please keep up the good work of spreading the good word that
'Recognise All Human Beings As One!'

great watch - Thank you.
Burmingum....

With due respect this post is nothing to do with independence of any sort so why did you bring this into it...

I would kindly request you to please delete your comments and save them for laters as it invites hatred and all we should do is join hands look forward and eliminate this hatred.

Otherwise I would kindly request one of the MODS to delete Burmingum it please.

is this the special edition that was re-released?
No, the superior special edition can be bought for £13.98 new on Amazon Marketplace:https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B003ZUXZCC/ref=olp_f_new?ie=UTF8&f_new=true&qid=1478541626&sr=8-1
Please be careful in ordering what appears to be bargain prices from these 'just launched' sellers. There is no feedback and no detailed seller information. i recently bought from a similar just launched seller and it was a scam. got my mony back from amazon a-z guarantee.

Note this is Planet Earth not Planet Earth II which was broadcast last night. If you want the series that started last night have a look on the BBC Store
Note that's only a download link. I'd go for the Blu Ray boxset - Planet Earth 1 was certainly worth every penny for a disc. And can re-sell if you so wish.

I agree that Planet Earth was amazing, just wanted to make sure people were aware that it was the series that started last night as one poster seemed to think it was. I guess the blu ray will be out before Xmas.

would like to think so,but looks unlikely,as the BBC store which sold dvd closed & the new BBC store sells only digital downloads to keep,pointless imo,as you can watch for free on Iplayer

Personally I think such programmes deserve a Blu-ray disc. I remember streaming one of the episodes where thousands of birds were flying and you could see the pixelation due not sufficient bitrate. Disc solves this problem. :)
I got the 6 disc "special edition" for £3.99 lately from base.com on their eBay store was advertised as planet earth 6 and it was under the bluray search section was well chuffed
