How to complain to the BBC

If you would like to complain to the BBC regarding the recent Panorama programme (mentioned in this article), you can do the following:

1) Log onto:


2) Use the following details for your complaint:

  • Type of complaint: Television
  • Choose channel: BBC One
  • Programme title: Panorama
  • Transmission date: 12/01/2015
  • Broadcast type: Live
  • Incident time: 20:30
  • Complaint category: Bias
  • Contacted us before: No
  • Complaint title: Unfair bias in Panorama show

2) Use any of the following factors for your complaint description:

The report fell down on many factors:

  1. It provided very skewed and unbalanced reporting.  It made no reference to real reports or evidence but provided opinion pieces showing a lacking of empirical evidence.
  2. The vast majority of views of those interviewed were all from one side of the argument barring one.
  3. It never referenced academics.  It ignored academics that have written reports disproving the theory that somehow beliefs that are perfectly legal and non-violent cause violence and terrorism.  For example, experts like John Horgan, director of the International Center for the Study of Terrorism at Pennsylvania State University, who said:

“The idea that radicalisation causes terrorism is perhaps the greatest myth alive today in terrorism research… (First), the overwhelming majority of people who hold radical beliefs do not engage in violence. And second, there is increasing evidence that people who engage in terrorism don’t necessarily hold radical beliefs.”

  1. It used terms like extremism without providing any definition (to actually show that by “extreme” it meant views the presenter disagreed with)
  2. It quoted speakers out of context e.g. H. Al-Haddad was quoted to misrepresent that he believes that men and women are not “equal” in the sense understood commonly.  The Qur’an explicitly states they are. No scholar would claim otherwise. No context given showing he was referring to a particular childish, literal interpretations of equality (to ignore the differences between men and women).

    Telling what the hell I should believe and what I should not believe. how I should feel and what not to feel. Im sorry I have this moron thing I do called thinking.
    the purpose of the british government or any western government is to propagate propaganda and cause ignorance as well as hatred against Islam and Muslims. The fear mongering, the false fairytale of how muslims want to take over britain etc. these are the same devilish tricks that the muslims of bosnia when through before the bosnian massacre. nationalistic pride is pumped into the ignorants fools thats why the governments allows groups like the EDL ( which is a tool of the government ) to flourish. Dont be fooled by their appearances its a total contrast to their dark hearts, their so called human rights, their democracy and pathetic ******** laws. Muslims have no security in the west. they want to slaughter you. just as they are slaughter muslims in other parts of the world with easy. muslims are no longer safe in these parts of the world. it wont be long before they start their slaughter of muslims in the west.

  3. This racist and unlawful conduct by john ware and other producers at panorama is an absolute disgrace. It is also clearly unlawful. I have also made a formal complaint.

  4. I have just submitted the complain.
