Memorandum by S Whitfield
My concern about the BBC's output relates to religious
broadcasting. There is far too much of it, especially on Radio
4. Conversely, there is little programming for those of us who
have worked out a life stance free of religious belief (ie up
to 20 per cent of the population, compared with, say, the 3 per
cent who are Muslims). There is also too much deference given
to religion on the BBCit should be subject to more criticismnot
abuse, but intellectual challenging of its notions.
Also, please, please get rid of TFTD, unless
you give the non-religious equal time.
