Countryside Alliance writes to Culture Secretary over BBC’s ‘anti-rural bias’

THE COUNTRYSIDE ALLIANCE HAS WRITTEN TO THE CULTURE SECRETARY FOLLOWING COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE BBC’S “ANTI-RURAL BIAS,” reports Farming UK.  The CA believes the BBC “lacks independent oversight of the Editorial Guidelines,” with complaints “poorly handled” over its “evident anti-rural bias.”  The Alliance recognises that this is not a time at which the Government is likely to spend energy overhauling the governance of the BBC, but this is a matter of serious import to rural communities.
