Ofcom accuse BBC of airing ‘propaganda films’

A 112-page report from media regulator Ofcom censures the broadcaster for what the Daily Mail has called a “blatant breach” of broadcast rules.

Ofcom warned of an “inherent risk to the BBC’s independence and integrity” as it emerged the state broadcaster purchased films funded by outside bodies and foreign governments for as little as £1.

The Independent reports Ofcom has found almost 50 breaches of TV standards among broadcasters, with funders ranging from the United Nations, British businessman and Imam Aga Khan, and even a Cambodian casino.
