Alasdair Gennie who is the TV correspondent for the Daily Mail reports today that:-
"BBC chiefs accepted yesterday that producers had made a huge mistake in a children's programme by claiming that Florence Nightingale was 'racist'.
This arose in the BBC's programme Horrible Histories when it showed Florence Nightingale as turning down four job applications from Jamaican born Miss Seacole saying that the nursing work was for 'British girls' only.
The Nightingale Society made a complaint and the BBC Trust has now ruled that the two minute 34 second depiction was inaccurate.
This is SO typical of the BBC's bias agenda in which it pushes its 'Guardianist' agenda with little to no concerns for the truth.
This is nothing short of a scandal because this isn't just making a 'bias nuance' but actually setting out, with NO proof, to distort the facts.
This is of course why I don't pay my TV licence and will continue to refuse until the BBC starts to report in an un-bias way as laid down by its Royal Charter.
