Memorandum by A McCaughtrie
Do different faiths (including
no faith beliefs) figure sufficiently in BBC programmes and services?
How should faiths be represented
in BBC programmes, services and governance?
My evidence to the above questions:
No, I believe that non-believers do not get
sufficient exposure on the BBC. The glaringly obvious one is Thought
for the Day on Radio 4. How can this be purely a religious
segment? It should include non-religious philosophy in proportion
to the number of believers to non-believers. If not, then have
two separate segments where the distinction is clear.
All faiths, including those who have faith that
there is NO god should be represented without bias. However, preaching
should not be allowed.
