BBC Complaints: The link you need!

Friday, 31 July 2009


Like its 'Politics Show' siblings, the Welsh programme 'Dragon's Eye' (broadcast on the BBC Parliament channel on Sundays) finished early this month, but it lingered on a little longer so there are a few more figures for its over-enthusiastic presenter, Adrian Masters. He conducted interviews with 7 politicians this month.

Here then are July interruption coefficients for Adrian Masters:

Andrew R.T. Davies, Conservative (5/7) - 2.5
Helen Mary Jones, Plaid Cymru (5/7) - 2.3
John Griffiths, Labour (5/7) - 2.3
Angela Burns, Conservative (19/7) - 2.2
Rodney Burman, Lib Dems (19/7) - 1.6
Kirsty Williams, Lib Dems (5/7) - 0.7
Edwina Hart, Labour (19/7) - 0.7

Average number of interruptions for each political party:
Conservatives - 2.4
Plaid Cymru - 2.3
Labour - 1.5
Lib Dems - 1.2

Comparisons with last month's figures are not particularly useful, as I only began reviewing the programme half way through the month, & there were very few interviews with politicians, but the two there were are suggestive of ongoing bias, being a 2.2 for Conservative Jonathan Morgan and a 0.5 for Labour's Carwyn Jones. Moreover, please click on the label for Dragon's Eye for further evidence. More figures when the programme returns with a sun tan will clarify matters.
