UK - BBC Educational Immigration Film Removed After Complaints (Video)

The British Broadcasting Corporation had to remove an educational film series entitled ‘don’t hate the debate’ after viewers stated it broke impartiality rules, aka it leaned a bit too much to a certain side.

The educational film series about immigration aimed at GCSE students, had to be taken down from Youtube after the BBC had (1) disabled commenting on the videos and (2) stated during the series that immigration had fueled a “huge rise” in support for right-wing politics and that “multiculturalism is in our DNA.”

Texts read during the video which were meant to be shown in classes were: “Multiculturalism is a powerful tool for survival and possibly the only way to survive, so let's embrace it.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I love how the segment on BBC that discussed this was &quot;Don&#39;t Hate The Debate&quot;. It&#39;s not a debate if everyone sitting on the sofa has the same opinion!</p>&mdash; Jason / jak1407 (@jak1407) <a href="">August 4, 2018</a></blockquote>

It also stated: “Because, you see, you’ve got the Celts, the Romans, the Anglo Saxons and the Vikings, the Normans, the Flemish, the Irish, black Britons and Jewish people.”

“Yup, we were multicultural long before curry and carnival. It’s in our DNA. There’s no such thing as a pure Brit, despite what some flag wavers would have you believe.”

Critics pointed out that after watching the videos it concluded that anyone worried about migration was naturally racist.

A BBC spokesman reacted to the removal: “Don't Hate the Debate is a series of films designed to help teachers enable classroom debates about topical issues. Each film includes a real debate between four young people, all giving views on a topic.”

Lord Green of Deddington, founding Chairman of Migration Watch UK, who launched the complaint, stated in his comments to the BBC that: “Most people in the UK are not opposed to immigration per se, but they are concerned, we think rightly, about its present scale.

“Yet the overall impression of the video is that anyone who questions its current scale is unreasonable and prejudiced. The video seems designed not to inform and stimulate discussion but to promote a particular opinion.”

To give you an idea of just how leftwing and biased the BBC is, allow me to share an example. As a European on a city-trip to Italy recently, I watched the reporting of the recent German elections on BBC World in a hotel room.

During the half-hour broadcast when the results were coming in, the AfD, which gained the most during those elections, was mentioned during a thirty second segment, all else was about the SPD and Ms Merkel.
