The BBC has been criticised over broadcasting “propaganda” in its programmes.

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.

Now, David Starkey has hit out at the corporation for its “one-sided messages”.

Speaking to Stephen Dixon on GB News, the historian said: “The problem is it's being done in a very particular way for very particular reasons. All of the programs deal one way or another with questions like slavery, race relations and this kind of thing, and they present a simple, fundamentally wrong one-sided message.

He continued: “When you look at them [BBC programmes], you don't think you're watching the BBC, you think you're watching Netflix and you think you're watching a bit of Harry and Meghan.

“We urgently need genuine debate on empire, on race relations, on slavery. But it needs to be a debate, it needs to be honest, it needs to present both sides of the argument. It needs to be scrupulous about information. It shouldn't be Netflix, Harry and Meghan style propaganda.”

Discussing what he said was the bias of The BBC, Starkey continued: “It's fine for Netflix, it's fine for those who want the rubbish that Harry and Meghan obey. Let them do it. But not a national broadcaster.”

He also went on to call The BBC “anti British, antihistorical propaganda. It is, in short, a disgrace.”
