The war on the BBC and how to save it
Sunday, 13 November
The BBC is constantly under siege – how can it survive the 360 degree onslaught it faces? Does it make a rod for its own back? Or is stuck in a perennial catch-22? Siân Pattenden is joined by Patrick Barwise author of The War Against the BBC, to discuss the embattled broadcaster.
“People pay for far more services that they don’t use than paying for the BBC.”
“What is contested is impartiality.”
“The organised attacks on the BBC come from the Right.”
“It is a miracle it's so productive given how tightly it has been squeezed.”
