BBC ‘too squea­mish’


The BBC has taken steps to im­prove its cov­er­age of ru­ral is­sues by tack­ling ‘hard- core’ agri­cul­tural and en­vi­ron­men­tal top­ics, ac­cord­ing to a new re­port by the cor­po­ra­tion’s trus­tees. An in­de­pen­dent re­view found that pro­grammes such as Coun­try­file were ‘too squea­mish and sim­plis­tic’ in their cov­er­age of ru­ral is­sues.
