Listen on

Episode notes

For years the BBC has lost battles with right wing lobbyists, free market economists and competitors who frame the corporation as biased, bloated, elite and out of touch with the people who pay for it to exist.

In The War Against The BBCLondon Business School Professor and "critical friend" of the corporation Patrick Barwise traces a line of anti-auntie gunpowder back to a surprisingly small but powerful and determined cabal of lobbyists and politicians linked to media and business interests in the UK and America.
