Select Committee on BBC Charter Review Written Evidence

Letter from RJ Giles

  The questions asked of the House of Lords Select Committee on the BBC Charter Review seem to me biased in themselves. "Do different faiths (including no faith beliefs) figure sufficiently in BBC programmes and services?" Surely a better phrasing would be, "Should different faiths figure in BBC programmes?" If the answer is "yes", how much?" "How should faiths be represented in BBC programmes, services and governance?"

  As religion is a minority interest nowadays—check church attendance on normal Sundays, surely the BBC should take this into account. Thought for the day for instance never has a rationalist on it.
