The War Against the BBC

By Patrick Barwise & Peter York

Patrick Barwise, Emeritus Professor of Management and Marketing at London Business School and cultural commentator Peter York argue that the BBC is in peril as never before.

Journalist Bridget Osborne discusses ‘The War Against the BBC’ with the two authors in a podcast for the Chiswick Book Festival in association with The Chiswick Calendar.

‘The BBC is our most important cultural institution, our best-value entertainment provider, and the global face of Britain. It’s our most trusted news source in a world of divisive disinformation. But it is facing relentless attacks by powerful commercial and political enemies, including deep funding cuts – much deeper than most people realise – with imminent further cuts threatened. This book busts the myths about the BBC and shows us how we can save it, before it’s too late’.
