The BBC's Charter and its Producers Guidelines state:
...'Due impartiality lies at the heart of the BBC. All programs and services should be open minded, fair and show a respect for truth? [BBC reports should] contain comprehensive, authoritative and impartial coverage of news and current affairs in the United Kingdom and throughout the world??
This one is out of the ordinary because this is no ordinary man. He is a hero in the truest meaning. Unfortunately he's not well known which speaks of our culture and of course media. So a change of pace for a moment, about a man so rare I stand in awe and who's story is nothing short of a privilege.
Hi Steevo - excellent post. In a way he might be glad to not see how the world has gone since then, though he clearly foresaw some of it. I think you might have selected the wrong category - Media-Tative would be more fitting. Tried to move it but it's not working at the moment - I'll move it as soon as it is
As you can see - it is now

At present, the BBC is only answerable to itself in deciding its standards and coverage. How does it measure up to what you consider good quality, and impartial and unbiased reporting as required by its charter? All TV viewers in the UK are forced by law to pay for this 'service'. Do you believe that what is received truly 'serves' the society, - or merely increases the problems within it?
