Here’s a publication we don’t hear much from on this blog – Farmers Guardian:
COUNTRYFILE, the BBC’s flagship rural programme, has been accused of a bias towards organic farming…
During the show Mr Craven interviewed a representative of the Organic Trade Board, a spokesman for leading organic brand Duchy Originals and the branding expert Marcel Knobil, who was given the task of coming up with a new marketing campaign to promote organic food scales.
However, the programme did not include any interviews with representatives from the non-organic food industry.
The chief exec of the Crop Protection Association has written to Sir Michael Lyons reminding the BBC “of its obligations to licence payers to remain impartial on all controversial issues.”
