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??
Last week there was a programme with the pros and cons of immigration which ran for 2 nights.
Presented by a man and a woman (the man I have seen before, but don't know where from)
Once more, the usual biased view and very carefully chosen people to put their view across. It was in the main about jobs going to immigrants from disgruntled white British born workers.
One thing that I would have made a big thing of was a lady applying for something with only here eyes showing and who couldn't speak English. I would have asked her to remove her headgear and basically bugger off !
Memory isn't good, but the woman presenting it was called Margaret. Would be interested to hear if anybody else watched this.

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?
