Biased BBC? Er, not quite…

August 3rd, 2008 § 0 comments


A government-funded documentary about police community support officers is to be probed by media watchdog Ofcom, the Sunday Telegraph has reported.

ITV1 show Beat: Life on the Street may have breached broadcasting codes by not making it clear it received £800,000 in Home Office funding, the paper said.

Ofcom rules say show sponsors must be clearly identified and not allowed to influence the content of programmes.

A Home Office spokesman said he was confident Ofcom rules were followed.

Two series of Beat: Life on the Street have been broadcast on ITV1, while a third has reportedly been commissioned.

Another programme called Border Force, about the work of the UK Border Agency, is due to be shown on Sky One later this month.

Yeah, fuck off B-BBC.
