BBC: Reporting terrorism

BBC bias: The BBC presents Israel as its only example of state terrorism.
In a 58-minute programme on terrorism (in which there is no attempt to define or categorise it), Israel’s targeted kilings are presented, not as a response to terrorism, but as terrorism itself.
Palestinian attacks on Israel and Israeli “retaliation” are presented equally as terrorism.

 

yesterday evening (saturday 1st), 8.00-9.00pm, on bbc radio 4 (repeated this afternoon, 12.00-1.00pm, in the the documentary series, on bbc world service radio)

No platform

last saturday evening (12th november), 8.00-9.00pm, on bbc radio 4
no platform (presented by professor andrew hussey) (in the archive on 4 series)

“Professor Andrew Hussey will hear how no platforming, made official NUS policy in 1974, took its inspiration from the disruptive methods of anti-fascist campaigners in the 1930s.
Hussey will examine whether there has been a shift in recent times, making the current incarnations of ‘no platform’ and ‘safe spaces’ a real danger, as many have suggested, to free speech on University campuses … and the use of ‘safe spaces’ as an excuse to barrack and intimidate speakers through the employment of the ‘heckler’s veto’.”

Kindertransport (1999)

last saturday evening (27th september), 8.00-9.00pm, on bbc radio 4 (in the archive on 4 series) (repeated from 1999)

“The story of the Kindertransport, told through the voices of the unaccompanied children sent to Britain from Nazi Europe.
In late 1938, the British government agreed to grant asylum to children from Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia, as long as they came alone and would not be a burden on public funds. 10,000 arrived, most of them Jewish, and the BBC was there to record their stories. A team went to Dovercourt Camp in Kent and recorded the innocent, hopeful voices of the newly arrived children for “Children in Flight”, a remarkable radio documentary.
