BBC Impartiality Report

From Seesaw to Wagon Wheel: Safeguarding Impartiality in the 21st Century was published this morning.

Impartiality requires the BBC to examine its own institutional values, and to assess the effect they have on its audiences.

The Report asks "Does the BBC’s institutional support for equal rights for women and gay people spill over unthinkingly into the way it makes programmes, and what are the BBC’s assumptions when addressing inequalities of gender and sexuality in societies and cultures of different persuasion?"
