    Default BBC Programmes - programmed?

    As an English person, I never really questionned the terminology of televised ‘programmes’ by the BBC. However, nowadays I find that we are being ‘programmed’ by the BBC, along with ancilliary TV channels. The word ‘programme’ has been stuffed into our brains televisually for at least 40 years now.
    I am now suspiscious of any BBC ‘programming’, so they will have to tempt me with an alternative piece of verbosity, definitely denying us being ‘programmed’ by their ‘programmes’.

    Hi Avid,

    It most definitely is all programmed very carefully. There is almost no BBC programme I see or hear that has no agenda.

    Interestingly, I met a writer for BBC drama a few years ago who worked on the scripts for famous series. I asked, "are you told to write to an agenda?" They said "no not at all". By which I thought "ok so they are not even aware they are writing to an agenda. The control is much more subtle than that".

    These days I just choose very selectively what I listen to on the BBC.

    Not a programme as such, but just reading this BBC News article:

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan...shire-45512812

    This is a current mantra of the BBC when you read the last line: "...where would we be without the NHS...". This is repeated ad nauseum across all BBC channels...

    BBC reports WTC 7 collapsed...BEFORE it collapsed!!



    Syrian man confronts BBC reporter for Lying



    You cannot talk about the BBC without mentioning The Royal Institute of International Affairs, commonly known as Chatham House.

    Just research BBC & Chatham house and google will bring up BBC journalist or BBC director General used to work at Chatham house, over and over again.

    In 2009 More than 20,000 people - identified as the next generation of leaders attended courses. It wass called Common Purpose and prominent supporters include BBC business editor Robert Peston..

    Its meetings are held under the Chatham House Rule, which means everything that is said in them is unattributable.

    However subtle the output programming maybe with the BBC, the input programming is clearly undeniable inside the BBC all thanks to Chatham House.

    For what it's worth:

    This thread brings up on interesting point about the distinction between a plan and a program.

    A plan, is an idea, often devoid of necessary details, such as who, what, when, where and how. No specific people, time, location and no means and methods.

    In contrast, a program is a plan, with the nessary details in place. Such as who, what, when, where and how. A successful program is coupled with the means and methods to carry it out.

    The murder if JFK was a program. Likewise, 9/11 was not a plan it was a program.

    Mind kontrol is not a plan, it is a program. We are indeed being programmed.

    DITTO.


    I used to listen to BBC radio all the time. To be honest, that's where I got my vocabulary from, I certainly didn't get it from doing an excessive amount of reading


    In recent times, I've become much more attuned to the energy of things I'm hearing, and to a lesser extent, things I'm seeing. I can now feel a sag in my inner spirit as soon as I switch the beeb on for a quick listen. It doesn't matter what's on. It can be a comedy half hour and my spirit still sags.


    It's very subtle how the programming works. It uses a whole spectrum of radio 'delights' to shunt your centre of mental gravity over to a place it shouldn't really be. From there, they can then clobber you with hard propaganda, especially if they can get a hook into your intellectual ego.

    I heard a wonderful phrase from an old man I met on the street about 11 years ago when discussing the general idea of television, he said "They don't call them programmes for nothing" it clicked right there and then and I haven't owned a TV since...

    In the States, among the half-educated, it has a pretty high reputation. But with minor review, yes, it does seem to be like many others who tell you what to think. And probably before things like Chatham House, Oxbridge was doing it anyway. They seem to be a treasure trove of honest, independent research, layered over with heavy programming.

    Despite that, English humor is very intricate and stands in a league of its own. Or it was, it may be different now, but it used to be more inspiring than anything else I could find.

    A person who has already been groomed to parrot the line at university probably doesn't need any more direction to write material that suits BBC desires. That's probably more in the news room. Someone said recently that the early report of WTC7 collapse might not have been a mistaken "early read", but was done intentionally as a foundation for a counter-movement which would then be infiltrated and handled. I don't know if that's true, but if the details were programmed in great detail, it makes a little more sense that it was on purpose.

    I'm thinking of downloading a podcast to decrypt it. They are for sure programmed.
