BBC, Gaza and Impartiality

It is noteworthy that the BBC is making a song and dance about impartiality as the reason for refusing to show an appeal from the DEC. Is there a link between the Ross affair, Gaza and Darwin? Clearly the BBC is a law unto itself.

It would seem that such impartiality doesn't extend to the Darwin day celebrations where the BBC sometimes doesn't even pretend to be balanced - as a recent radio 4 programme demonstrated by talking about creationists, not to them.

Is there a link to the BBC program you're referring to? I'd be interested in hearing the audio.

It was one of the programmes on Radio 4 late afternoon about Darwin with 3 Darwinists from Judaism, Christianity and Islam - somehow that makes it balanced when there were no opposing views.
