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

Try this to understand the importance of context: youtube.com/wat…PFM

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

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.

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!

Please do some research.For starters BBC Store is BBC Worldwide … Please do some research.For starters BBC Store is BBC Worldwide commissioned programming and has absolutely nothing to do with Public Service. Secondly to those who don't understand the (confusingly named) TV License, this actually funds ALL local radio, national radio, the website, news, sport, iPlayer, school reports, education initiatives for schools and a lot more.Take all that away, what you have is Murdoch and crappy reality TV on ITV and commercial radio.That's not to say the BBC don't have any waste, but that's why they are scrutinised so heavily.


Some good points but their expenses are hardly scrutinised at all...and they get away with allot of wasteful jollies etc..

I have no issue with the general principle of the TBH licence, but as … I have no issue with the general principle of the TBH licence, but as always; if the programs are TVL; they should be provided to the public at no extra cost as set out in the BBC's charter. Funnelling the money through a shell company doesn't change that.If all the decent stuff is not publicly funded; that would raise the question of where on earth does the money go?



There's lots of reasons that cannot be the case, but the primary reasons being that the BBC commisions programmes from other programme makers under contract, in addition to in-house work.

The BBC PS sell the rights to content it is eligible to do so and those programmes are then sold globally, either in recorded form, or the IP/license to the brand. That money then comes back to PS in part to subsidise the few you pay.

Everything is publically funded, you just pay a fraction of the actual costs.

I don't want to kick up an argument, but I am interested in these discussions.

The way I see it, the business models are incompatible, but similar...

TV Licence is an on-going subscription service and the Cinema is a single use rental. With the TV Licence, you are paying for live broadcasts. With Cinema, you are paying to have a seat in a room for the duration of a movie. The only thing they have in common is that they are licences to view, not to own.

So to answer your question, no. There is no reason watching something on terrestrial TV or at a cinema should result in you owning a local copy of the content. Whether this is right or not is a different (and very valid) argument

Get hold of all recent BBC programmes and be treated to the best of the BBC’s library of programmes in trusted environments - with a ‘permanent collection’ available for free, and paying for other content which would otherwise not be available."- If you want to watch live tv; you need a licence.- The BBC is required to provide a seven day catch-up service.- Recent and other "best" programs are available free and permanent. (older archives that are worth making available qualify as "best")Obviously; movies or imported series will not be licence funded; so charging for these is expected. But all the examples I can see are those commissioned; so should not be charged for (unless the charge is for a commentary track or similar specifically produced separately from any broadcast item, and funded by non-BBC sources.


The BBC get around not being able to charge people by giving BBC Worldwide the rights to their past and present progams so they can then sell them to broadcasters around the world and sell dvd's and streaming content to us without breaching the charter. The BBC's revenue is 75% funded by licence fee and 25% via BBC Worldwide. I don't personally think they should be charging for archive content especially not recent programs such as doctors of which they currently offer 600 episodes at the cost of over £1200. Channel 4 offer a large selection of their archives for free (Ad Supported) and I don't see why the BBC can't do the same. The other thing I hate about the BBC Store is they say that they can't guarantee your purchase will be aviliable forever meaning they can remove a program at any time they like and then your purchase becomes useless.

The government need to step in more and completely dump the licence. You say "Quality programming does not come cheap" - I say that the BBC has appalling quality programmes and it's disgusting they can justify billions on such dross, yet if I wanted to watch the other channels I would still have to pay for it.

Obviously; movies or imported series will not be licence funded; so charging for these is expected. But all the examples I can see are those commissioned; so should not be charged for (unless the charge is for a commentary track or similar specifically produced separately from any broadcast item, and funded by non-BBC sources.

You're absolutely right. In much the same way as those who bought Beatles LPs on vinyl back in the 60s have always been supplied with free copies of new media.

A relative of mine still benefits from that. They sent him free cassettes, then CDs, and now he's got all the MP3s totally free of charge. Exactly the same for all the other vinyl he bought too.

No, apparently your TV license pays for the live broadcast.
So this is the equivalent of buying a DVD of a BBC program from a bricks and mortar store.

Why are they sending out an 'offer code' for the second series, why not just send series 2 with series 1?? ...sounds bizarre!

...or is this a download??

The more people that keep paying for stuff & not using kodi the more chance decent content remains being made. I've been using kodi (as xbmc) since 2005 (when it was on the original xbox) & whilst I appreciate the streaming addons for what they are, this huge influx of people using them instead of paying for content in some way is working for future content. I pay for amazon & netflix despite rarely using them for this reason. These shows cost money to make, there needs to be customers paying for them to continue making them. Now football, that's a different matter. If everyone stops paying for sky sports & using streams then the end game is pretty much just reduced footballers wages, which is hardly the end of the world!



​i pay for my content, I am surprised that governments strategy to illegal or loophole content is beyond pathetic. in years to come 2 things are gonna happen, nothing changes or Chinese style restrictions on the Internet concerning streaming, this has to be done government and hardware level, isps are can't, fines rubbish, to many of us want it now and for free

I'd rather see bit of the med , than chuffin norf yaarkshire again

Corky was very good

Enjoyed it . I realise it took a lot cash to make

Probably hiring that villa lol

These things are NEVER going to be as good as the book.

Hiddleston was great , Laurie kind of fell down a bit for me in the middle of the last one.

Otherwise good / believable execution

I really enjoyed this from start to finish, I think Tom Hiddleston would make a good Bond; after all he did order a Vodka Martini in the last episode, is that an omen

Well Sherlock Complete Collection plummeted from £37.99 down to £9.89 not bad for a full 16 disc box set ok it's only available on DVD won't appeal to many...but I thought it a bargain it's still £29.99 on Amazon.
