BBC vision and values

The BBC says its vision is to be the most creative organisation in the world. If they mean 'creative' as in the sense of 'creative accounting' then they're getting close to achieving their goal.

Take Dragon's Den - it's a BBC con. The programme deceives the audience into thinking that innovators who impress the "dragons" are clinching deals on tv, and will receive the money they ask for to improve or develop their business plans. In reality only about 30% actually get the dough.

By the time Dragon's Den is aired it's probably known what actually transpired. But the BBC conceals the truth from its viewers.

"Trust is the foundation of the BBC." Looks like its foundations are a bit shaky.
