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??
Against my better judgement, I watched a part of this programme which went out on Channel 5. I was so incensed by what I saw, that I abandoned it before I had a seizure.
One immigrant who is married was complaining that the council should have given her a bigger house and they were peeved because they only had £200 per week to live off.
Well, break my heart, think yourself lucky you aren't a senior citizen like me who have to live off £100 per a week. The hubby also smoked and whinged because he couldn't afford to smoke so much with the price of fags being what they are.
Also another immigrant here sends home to his wife and other kids a substantial amount, while he is living here.
Could we make our home in another country and send home money to our nearest and dearest ? - well dream on.
No wonder UKIP have made such headway.
Once more I wish everybody on here a Very Happy Christmas (well I do have a soft side) - SOMETIMES !!
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?
