Former BBC journalist Robin Aitken (author of “Can We Trust the BBC?”) interviews Rod Liddle, his former boss on BBC Radio 4’s “Today” programme, about BBC bias and the left’s gradual takeover of the national broadcaster — once a conservative institution — over several decades.
In a wide-ranging discussion covering their experiences at the institution, the gradual erosion of BBC impartiality and the decline of trust in the organisation, Rod Liddle and Robin Aitken also consider whether reform is desirable and achievable or whether the institution should be scrapped completely.
This interview was recorded for episode 5 of the New Culture Forum’s landmark documentary series “Heresies” (#NCFHeresies).
