PS – the Gaza appeal and the BBC

Outside my normal field of comment: but, amid the furore about the BBC deciding not to screen the appeal for disaster relief in Gaza, did you notice how far the BBC News went to make up for the deficiency?

Their news report went out with a backdrop of the poster, there was at least one (though extremely short) extract from the film, and the DEC website address was included in the backdrop towards the end of the report.

Well done BBC News! Disaster relief whether earthquake or warzone doesn’t take sides. If you missed it, visit
