    So hearing of a book about the people who were betrayed by Perfidious Albion fifty years ago…

    Obviously I can’t provide a book review, as it won’t be published for a few weeks, by Royal Sable Publishing, but I’m advised it should be available via Amazon, due out on 31st March. RRP £25

      Rhodesia was such a great little country, and we all miss it.
      Thanks for your support.

    UK Pravda’s Ugly Under-Belly! 

    Voices of the BBC... ‘

    That’s the heading above a bulky package of stuff ‘curated by leading academics..that shines a light on the hidden stories of broadcasting


    So I began to look through it, curious if the biggest BBC scandal…

    The same BBC which cast its charter to the winds by acting as Harold Wilson’s Pravda during the Rhodesian sell-out.



    Harold Wilson used the BBC World Service to promulgate false information about Ian Smith. A letter in the PRO from the Rhodesia Ministerial Committee to the Prime Minister advised that Ian Smith should be portrayed as a weak unreliable figure. Note that the BBC’s World Service, although fully financed by the government, is subject to the same “public service” conditions as the Home Services




    ….Another letter from the Commonwealth office dated 25th May 1967 refers to a request by the PM to be shown fresh guidance before it was sent to the BBC. 

    The official said; “I am afraid this guidance has gone; in accordance with our usual practice it was given orally and confidentially to the Head of their African Service.

    It was suggested to the BBC, we should continue as in the past to make Mr Smith appear incapable of making up his own mind. He should be portrayed as evasive, weak and vacillating. Full agreement was reached with the BBC and the guidance has already been reflected in the content of broadcasts.”…-

    This campaign went on for two years. A letter from the BBC to the Civil Service asks for permission to discontinue the campaign because of staffing problems. The BBC man in charge, presumably responsible for continuously breaking his obligations under the Royal Charter, was being promoted.

    These letters are probably the only official documents available which prove without any doubt that the BBC has been used by the government of the day to broadcast government propaganda. Stop BBC Bias – BBC Charter Review


    …had been covered up.

      Every time I read about that, it increases my hatred for the BBC
