Strikes
It was generally considered that our coverage of the General Strike of 1926 was in favour of the employers and against the workers. We therefore have a duty, in line with our charter, to redress the balance. In addition to this, the viewpoint of employers must necessarily be curtailed in order to avoid promoting any commercial interest, once again in line with the charter. The points below will give you an idea of the line that you should take.

1. All BBB drama output - that is ALL of it - depicts strikes from the viewpoint of the workers and not the companies. Examples are endless, but one notable one was our tv drama Faith - about the 1980's miners' strike - which we timed perfectly just before a general election in 2005 in order to remind everybody about what happened - from the miners' standpoint, of course.

2. Our Action Network team are promoting the right to strike, with helpful links to the TUC
