The BBC is censored, and has been from its inception - notwithstanding an official narrative which denies this fact. It is a tool of the UK deep state.

Official narrative

Censorship does not occur at the BBC, output is only expurgated for apolitical reasons such as decency.

UK FOIA Act Exemption

The BBC (as well as Channel 4 and S4C need not respond to FOIA requests about information which is "held for purposes other than those of journalism, art or literature".[1]

Counterexamples

Tony Gosling recounts how, as a BBC journalist, in the late 1990s, when he first heard of the Bilderberg group, he was confident that it was merely an urban legend, since he had never heard of it. This was a reflection of the almost perfect blackout of the topic by commercially-controlled media at the time. This is mirrored by a lack of reporting about other deep state milieux.

Secret Society

In the 1980s, BBC Scotland commissioned a documentary, Secret Society which exposed some of the goings on of the Thatcher government, especially the system of cabinet subcommittees. This was deemed too sensitive and so although produced but even 30 years later, it has still never been broadcast on terrestrial TV in the UK.[2]

Audio track editing

Responding to Robert Stuart's enquiries about Dr Rola, the BBC admitted that they had removed the phrase "chemical weapon" from the soundtrack of a video without providing visual notification of the fact. It was hard to detect because the speaker was wearing a mask which covered her mouth. They stated that "it is common in broadcasting to edit spoken contributions to ensure maximum clarity".[3]

WTC 7 Collapse foreknowledge - "an error - no more than that"

Full article: 9-11/WTC7/Destruction/Foreknowledge

The BBC have never released the source of their information that WTC7 would collapse, and have only issued one statement regarding their remarkable premature announcement of the collapse of WTC7. In 2007, Richard Porter, a BBC Senior Editor claimed that the BBC "no longer ha[d] the original tapes of our 9/11 coverage", that "if we reported the building had collapsed before it had done so, it would have been an error - no more than that"[4], adding that no further explanation would be forthcoming.

"The man who murdered Osama bin Laden"

In 2008 David Frost interviewed Benazir Bhutto, the Prime Minister of Pakistan. In their online version, the BBC removed the contraversial clause "he also had dealings with Omar Sheik, the man who murdered Osama bin Laden."[5][6]
