The BBC, under intense political pressure and often accused in the UK of failing to reflect the country’s diversity, issued a plan on Friday to improve its neutrality.

The network is often targeted by Boris Johnson’s Conservative government and has to deal with competition from platforms like Netflix.

In addition, he was shaken by several scandals, such as her interview with Princess Diana 25 years ago obtained by a journalist who resorted to forged documents, the consequences of which are still being felt.

The ten-point plan released on Friday calls for trainings to improve neutrality, regular review of BBC content, more transparency and a whistle-blowing policy.

“The BBC’s editorial values ​​of fairness, accuracy and trust are at the foundation of our relationship with audiences in the UK and around the world,” said BBC Director-General Tim Davy.

The changes, he added, ensure that “we have learned lessons from the past” and that the chain will “protect those values ​​in the future.” (I)
