The BBC Burn Up Balance
Dr Wunsch, from the Massachussetts Institute of Technology, said "what we now have is an out-and-out propaganda piece, in which there is not even a gesture toward balance".
The accuracy code, meanwhile, includes an instruction that "a personal view or authored programme or item must be clearly signalled to the audience at the outset", and that programmes covering issues of political controversy must not give "undue prominence" to any particular point of view.
I thought this might be about the much hyped BBC program Burn Up
Christopher Hall, the producer of Burn Up, which is going to hit the screens next week, admits that "the question we kept asking ourselves was, 'How do we make a sexy programme about CO2? It's a gas, for goodness' sake!' So we see this piece as a Trojan horse: we rivet viewers with good drama and smuggle the message in that way." ..."There isn't a more important issue in the world than global warming. Even the Cold War and the Bay of Pigs crisis were notional threats. A warming planet isn't a threat – it's happening."
Of course not - that is going to be on the BBC and of course is balanced... No it was the Channel 4 The Great Global Warming Swindle that attracted the complaints....
