For many years I have wondered why the BBC has peddled the alarmist' man-made Global Warming (GW) ' theory without providing a response to those who oppose that theory. With constant reference to global warming in many of their natural history programmes, it became an insidious drip, drip, drip of subliminal messaging. Also, for those of you who believe that the BBC is a propaganda machine for certain causes (in this case the great 'Global Warming' scam) then this book will confirm your belief. Even die hard BBC supporters may find the revelations alarming. A well researched book (or as some have said, an 'essay') Mr Montford took on the might of the BBC hierarchy but with limited success due to the fact the BBC is an integral part of the GW establishment.

My only observation is the dryness of the writing and the fact that the many emails referenced in the text could have been printed in italics to differentiate them from the main body of work. However, that is just a small point.

Excellent narrative of how the BBC has gone wrong during the past several decades. Their green agenda has become much too left wing in contravention of their core editorial mandate, particularly so on the important issue of climate change. In most cases balanced reporting is never presented with opposing viewpoints, and as Andrew Montford has shown many of the greener-than-green protagonists responsible for a good deal of wanton deception should rightfully be prosecuted.

However as a geophysicist with a fair understanding of how the Earth works cannot establish a scintilla of evidence that atmospheric carbon dioxide is sufficient to bring about climate change,(nee global warming). Our thanks must go to Andrew for his journalistic endeavour in highlighting, to put it mildly, BBC failings.

A well written and exhaustive account of the machinations behind the BBC's development of a 'policy' on climate change, whereby nothing is ever heard on any channel about contrarian views. These involved a meeting at he BBC, supposedly attended by Climate Experts, upon whose advice the contrarians were to be excluded. The BBC stonewalled for years on the identity of the experts whom they consulted. A list was at long last procured by Montford via an indirect route, not from the BBC, which showed that the panel contained few with even an approximation to the scientific credentials to pronounce on the subject, but did contain green and environmental activists, having a built-in bias. An excellent forensic investigation into a disgraceful episode in the history of our biased BBC, where policy replaces journalism.

THE STORY (my words)
- The Guardian readers of the BBC succumbed to the Guardian readers of the Green movement.
- They literally met to work out how every aspect of BBC output would include Green propaganda.
- BBC management bought into it.
- They lied about the existence of the plot itself, and actually did became an instrument of CO2 alarmists etc, as per the plot.
- The extent of the BBC etc cover up was obscene.

THE BOOK
Readable and to the point. It doesn't editorialise or waffle. Nor does it mince its words, E.g.: 'the BBC is rotten and they know it.'

PERSONALLY
I like the emails where the villains literally write to each other openly joking about the wrongness of their plotting.
On a wider level, we can no longer actually believe anything we are told by the BBC.

Proves beyond doubt that the BBC is an organ of indoctrination. The BBC makes some excellent programmes and because of this has a lot of credibility and people naturally assume, because of this that it is a completely honest organization. This book shows that on certain selected issues the BBC is biased and has been involved in lying to the public and covering up scientific evidence. In particular it shows that the BBC made a decision to present the Climate Change agenda as very factual and supported by all credible scientists in the world, whereas the very opposite is true.

If you've ever wondered why the BBC never, ever, transmits anything other than the Accepted Political Truth about global "warming" and climate, this investigation explains it. It is a scandal that a taxpayer-funded and supposedly neutral, apolitical and unbiased organisation simply refuses to permit any differing views to be expressed on this extremely important subject, but that's the mad age we endure, and future generations might have to if someone doesn't manage to cry "Halt! Enough!"

A piece of clearly expressed journalism that exposes skulduggery, fraudulent use of taxpayers money and bias at the BBC. Andrew Montford et al are to be highly commended for their resolute application to the task in hand in the face of determined cover ups on the part of the BBC. It saddens me to realise the careless way that Prof Steve Jones got himself involved in the process; a kick in the teeth for the reputation of science.

This publication exposes the intentional bias in just one area of BBC coverage. It shows the BBC to be corrupt, accepting biased propaganda from television production companies openly supporting "green " issues to broadcast in "entertainment " slots. The desire to incorporate propaganda in dramas, comedies etc. without declaring the financial input of campaigning organisations. The exposure of the use of taxpayers money on immoral legal challenges to genuine requests for information under the FOI.

Clear description of an attempt by some at the BBC to drive a not so hidden agenda. We depend on broadcasters like the BBC to provide clear unbiased coverage of topical events and issues and this demonstrates how easily the process can be hijacked.

Proves the case about bias as far as I am concerned, the problem is how to show it more widely and what to do about it. Something surely needs to change even if it's a clearout of staff from top to bottom since like tends to recruit like.
