A report into the BBC says the corporation is 'warping modern Britain'

A new report says the BBC is “warping modern Britain” with its drama series which reportedly intertwine left-wing politically correct bias to storylines.

Shows including EastEnders and Virgil are described as being close to propaganda due to their criticism of Brexit, capitalism, the police, government agencies and nuclear deterrent.

The report by the Campaign for Common Sense assessed output of BBC dramas for more than a year.

Following the review, it found the corporation was portraying a version of the country that very few viewers would recognise.

According to former culture secretary Nadine Dorries, the BBC was at risk of cutting off viewers by “retreating into some minute view of the world” that doesn’t represent the experience of licence fee payers.

The report also suggests that the BBC lectures viewers on topics such as climate change and basks in social engineering by over-representing minorities.

Dorries ordered a mid-term review of the BBC’s royal charter following concerns that reforms might be needed to attain greater impartiality.

In October last year, the BBC director-general, Tim Davie set up a 10-point plan to improve impartiality but the report by Campaign for Common Sense disputed that the BBC still has a “long way to go”.

The inquiry found that during an episode of Eastenders, Brexit was likened to Covid by character Sharon Watts as she threw a glass of water in someone’s face and said: “We’ve had Brexit and Covid, we don’t need you here.”

While drama series Vigil about a detective on board a Trident-armed submarine, discusses nuclear disarmament as one anti-nuclear campaigner declares: “There’s no way our Government can claim that these weapons are safe and secure. It’s time to get the nukes out of Scotland.”

Other dramas highlighted included conspiracy programme The Trick which pits heroic climate change scientists against climate sceptics, oil producers and the centre-Right.

The Responder, a Liverpool-based police drama features a cast in which almost half of the officers are black or Asian despite Merseyside Police having just 0.5 per cent black officers and 0.4 per cent Asian.

A spokesman for the Campaign for Common Sense said: “Too often in BBC dramas you can see only one side of an argument presented.

“And it’s usually the side of a liberal, Left-wing, woke viewpoint that has more in common with the echo chambers of Twitter than the majority of licence fee payers who are forced to fund the BBC’s output.

“The BBC needs to understand that not everyone signs up to a world view where the bad guys are the police, Brexit, and Conservatives.”

A BBC spokesman responding saying: “The BBC’s world-class, critically-acclaimed dramas are enjoyed by huge audiences, year in year out. We work with the very best creative talent who represent all corners of the UK and reflect different views and perspectives, while also providing brilliant entertainment and escapism.

“Cherry-picking a handful of examples in thousands of hours of output does not constitute analysis and is not a true representation of BBC content.”
