The BBC Trust’s From See-saw to Wagon Wheel, p 40:
The BBC has held a high-level seminar with some of the best scientific experts, and has come to the view that the weight of evidence no longer justifies equal space being given to the opponents of the consensus. But these dissenters (or even sceptics) will still be heard, as they should, because it is not the BBC’s role to close down this debate. They cannot be simply dismissed as ‘flat-earthers’ or ‘deniers’, who ‘should not be given a platform’ by the BBC. Impartiality always requires a breadth of view: for as long as minority opinions are coherently and honestly expressed, the BBC must give them appropriate space.

The advice of the mysterious “experts” they take. The rest of it, not so much.
(Reminder re. that seminar of scientific experts – there is at least one FoI requestoutstanding.)
