Another Royal Reckoning For The BBC

Another Royal Reckoning For The BBC

The BBC has come under fire for its 1995 Panorama interview with the late Princess Diana, after an independent inquiry by Lord Dyson found that journalist Martin Bashir used deceptive means to secure the interview. The scathing report comes at a time when future public funding for the BBC is being negotiated, amid allegations of perceived right-wing bias within the institution. We discuss the implications of the scandal and the media environment for the public broadcaster with Professeor Suzanne Franks of City, University of London.
