hmmmm.....i really don't know if they are. I haven't seen anything to say that they're a communist network.

BBC? Commies?

Whatever makes you think that?!
The BBC has always stayed well within the boundaries of good taste and is quite conservative in this way. The news coverage is neutral and un-editorial.

If anything, the BBC comes across as centrist, as far as politics are concerned.

Other than being publically funded by hideous TV taxes, it seems pretty neutral to me. No hammers, sickles, or calls to kill the rich and redistribute the wealth.

The network that brought us the genius of Monty Python's Flying Circus a commie institution?! NEVER!

In what way is it a commie network? Please explain.

The BBC is exactly like NPR and PBS in America. Left-wing mouths supported by the respective governments.

Come on then, explain why the BBC is a commie broadcast?

Or are you going to veto this post?

Nans, you've overdone the Pernod. The BBC is the March of God through history: the finest organisation in the world and England's gift to benighted non-cricket-players.
It's new, it's old-fashioned, it's improved, it's traditional.
Scarcely a bed-fellow of governments: hence the Blair-Kelly unpleasantness or for that matter the Falklands-Thatcher unpleasantness 20 years ago.
It is a bureaucracy "run" by Oxbridge hacks and government toads but the journalists are the best. It is -emphatically -the only international "medium" that is pretty much trusted outside the white man's world.

Not that Estragon has anything against "Oxbridge hacks and government toads " of course, he is one of the former and if the price were right he'd fancy being one of the latter.
Seriously, Nans: warts and all, the Beeb (World Service Radio, I stress, not the UK TV or the dubious world TV service) is the best: and I could bore posters with many a tale of Estragon's journey's among the heathen peasantry where the only source of any information that was trusted was the World Service.

And how did this thread get into a forum designed explicitly to cater for the descendants (some of them, at least) those who abandoned the virtues of rule from Westminster, pronouncing "herb" correctly, complete ignorance of baseball, driving on the right side of the road, coining words such as "copacetic",and of correct spelling!!??
Something about PBS, perhaps?
