A Little Government Intervention?

Not too sure if anyone has posted on this previously, but have just had something pointed out to me about last weeks Question Time, which I did not watch.

If you look at this video of Question Time last week you will clearly see that the cameraman has caught Harriot Harman's signal to David Dimbleby at just after 14 minutes into the clip (use slider bar to start at 14.05).

Ian Duncan-Smith has just brought up his pet subject of problems of inner city areas and crime. Just after the hand signal, Dimbleby goes into overdrive to shut IDS down, claiming vociferously that he's off subject. The earnestness of Dimbleby shows quite clearly that he is responding directly to Harman, almost as if he is under some sort of obligation to do so.

Take a look and judge for yourself.

Biased? The BBC? Mais Oui!

Who'd a thunk it?

It must be to do with the unique way the BBC is funded.
