Publisher's Summary

BBC: Brainwashing Britain? is a shocking expose of mass propaganda, its components, and aims. You may never look at Auntie in the same way ever again.  

The people of Britain are under attack. We are being brainwashed. We are being brainwashed completely, ceaselessly and cynically....

So just who is doing the brainwashing? How are they doing it and for what purposes?

David Sedgwick’s latest book takes the listener on a disturbing journey deep into the realms of mistruth and deception to reveal, for the very first time, the many tricks and subterfuges used by the British Broadcasting Corporation. Every time we engage with BBC content, the author argues, we are exposing ourselves to a very dark art: the art of brainwashing. 

Wilful, deceitful and incessant, Orwellian parallels define the modern corporation and should chill the soul of all who cherish freedom and liberty. Mind control is here. This is not fiction.

Utimately a parody of itself

There are some interesting points buried deep (hence why 2 stars and not 1) in the information presented, however the pejorative language just set this up to be a parody of everything it sets out to debunk. I did fact check some of the claims and there is some supporting evidence, so for me, it was ruined by the language used and the narrator.

Unfortunately BBC aren’t alone but we pay £5bn pa for the privilege!

Brilliantly put together and we need more challenges to the narrative we’re force fed. I now watch BBC News and Newsnight etc to spot and count the manipulative phrasing and directional steering. Regardless of whether you are left or right, neutrality of the state funded media network is critically important. The incredibly dangerous level of ‘misrepresentation and shockingly outrageous deliberate lies’ steered by the BBC along with the absolute ARROGANCE of IGNORING any alternative that oppose their narrative, generating panick, fear, division, anti conservative/republican (calling them ‘far-right’) blaming everything on brexit and pushing ‘minority viewpoint and extremism as if it’s newsworthy! £5bn a year from taxpayers. £1bn on salaries! It should be shut down. It’s too big. It’s self regulated and its been irrelevant for the last 10 years.

Excellent insight into the BBC's bias

The book paints a much darker picture of the "bias" of the BBC not just in its news reporting but also in tv programming and political and social commentary. The author puts forward numerous examples which demonstrate this "bias", many of which you will have heard before and some maybe not. But either way, it puts into question whether this is an unconscious bias or a deliberate manipulation. I imagine the answer lies somewhere inbetween. The BBC undoubtedly has many talented and decent journalists and programme makers within its ranks, but like any institution or cult, those at the top control the agenda and it must be exceedingly difficult for those who would be whistleblowers. There have been some, but usually they've already ended their tenure at the BBC or they don't last long, like David Bellamy who spoke out about the climate change propaganda. For many, especially those in the working class who are aware of what's going on, the BBC is past saving and the tv licence fee must be abolished. An excellent book, much more hard-hitting than you may imagine and very listenable.

Utter Gibberish.

This book is not in anyway objective. A right wing institution like the BBC has and has always hated leftists. I stopped watching it years ago for this reason. Only bought this as it might demonstrate how debate has been snuffed out on both sides as Chomsky States. We're being controlled and driven by right and centre globalist agenda called the Neocons. This book is propoganda.

poisonous power

As an Australian, I was hardly into the book when I realized that David Sedgwick was also describing our supposedly impartial national taxpayer funded broadcaster.
what a revelation. why do otherwise Intelligent individuals need the comfort and security of groupthink. .And how can they be so blatently dishonest. if you cannot be honest with others, how can you be honest with yourself, how soul destroying. great book. thank you.
