A Brief About The BBC

A Brief About The BBC The BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation Limited) was founded in 1922 and became a state-owned company in 1927 after receiving a royal license.  The BBC is now a semi-autonomous state-owned company run by a board of trustees.  The BBC claims that the company is not under any commercial or political influence and is accountable only to its audience;  Because all parts of it, except the “global part”, are funded by the cost to the British people of watching television.  But the BBC World Service is funded by the government and the British Foreign Office.  The field of activity of this section is radio, television and internet.
 The global sector is administratively a subset of the London diplomatic apparatus, and its macro-policies are always overseen by government officials or their representatives.  Although BBC officials insist on the independence of their global service, in order to approve and implement various programs, they need to present their plans to legislators and executives and have direct parliamentary review and approval through the Foreign Diplomacy Division of the Foreign Affairs Committee and the State Department.
 Therefore, it seems that the production and broadcasting of BBC foreign programs is in line with the UK’s “public diplomacy”;  The British Foreign Office has named the BBC World Service one of the four pillars of British public diplomacy.1
 Public diplomacy is a new way of achieving countries’ foreign policy that emphasizes direct communication and influencing the public opinion of nations instead of dealing with governments to advance the goals and interests of a country.  The British Foreign Office’s official website defines public diplomacy as “achieving political goals by working with the general public abroad”.
 This method minimizes the cost of implementing decisions and pursuing interests at the destination and breaks down the barrier of resistance to “others” or “aliens”.  In the meantime, media outlets that have an audience outside the geographical borders of a country will do the most to advance national interests.  That is why the BBC’s foreign sector is funded by the British government.
 According to Nicholas Call, an expert on the history of public diplomacy, one of the BBC’s problems in this regard is the impossibility of getting rid of the unpleasant memories of the Iranian audience of the network’s not very defensible past and focusing only on the glorious future.  The BBC Persian TV channel uses various methods to attract more audiences and show its familiarity and closeness to Iranian and Persian culture.  For example, in the first days of its operation, the BBC Persian TV channel tried to make the mentality of some Iranians about “Britain’s hidden hand in Iranian politics!”  In the context of the illusion of conspiracy and practically create a credible and neutral image of himself in front of the audience that in Iran today seeks no benefit other than bringing peace and human rights to Iranians.
 The BBC is full of agents of the Islamic regime. The fact that it covers the main facts in this media because of the regime’s weapons considers the Afghan and Persian programs as a criterion for diminishing values, because this media has a separate program for all nations, but  Iranians and Afghans, because they are a backward nation together, in their opinion, are both of the same fabric, and these.  They have a BBC channel in which 60% of its shareholders are agents of the Islamic Republic, and in order to revive the Taliban government in the BBC news, they have long been full of lies and facts due to the weapons of politicians and influential elements of the Islamic Republic.  They show little color and why this Mr. Mehdi Khalaji shows his activities and programs there, it is obvious because of the influence of the Islamic Security Organization because these programs are recorded for Iran and Afghanistan. He blocked me because he removed all the comments.  The masters of the Islamic regime were reciting and it was a loss for them and it was a tragedy for them to write statements from Hazrat Abdu’l-Bah ، under themCoverage of Iranian news in the elections Religious democracy in Iran is undoubtedly a new phenomenon in the world of politics that should be understood differently from other well-known political systems and structures in the world.  Three decades after the establishment of the Islamic Republic and looking at its 30 years of experience, it seems that politics in Islamic Iran is based on three main pillars: Islam, the people and the leadership.  The legal-political structures envisaged in the constitution also practically reflect the relationship of the people with the leadership (Vali-e-Faqih) based on and within the framework of Islam, and according to the spirit of the constitution, will advance Iranian society towards divine perfection.
 In the case of elections, apart from the behavior of political elites, media executives, candidates and their organized supporters in the form of election campaigns, what is most noteworthy is the popular behavior of the people and the leadership in Iran.
 The BBC, which specializes in “writing between two lines” and running around conservatively, is also considering thought-provoking policies in covering Iranian news and analyzing subsequent events during the 10th presidential “We are witnessing a change in the attitude of the candidates protesting against the Iranian presidential election, and they must take steps to accept the results of this election,” the BBC Persian service chief said. Years ago, the insistence of British Foreign Office officials and the BBC World Service to broadcast propaganda against the nationalization of the oil industry in Iran and the Mossadegh government caused even the Persian producers and staff of the network to stop working for a while in protest of this policy.  Now we can ask: is history repeating itself or is a new game on the way !?

Mohammad Hassanein Heikal, a well-known Arab historian and journalist, described the reduction of street protests after the Supreme Leader’s speech as a sign of Iran’s very cohesive public image, in a special program on “Ba Heikal” aired on Al-Jazeera television.  “The Islamic Republic remains strong and enjoys the unity of its internal ranks under the powerful leadership of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei,” the UAE-based Al-Khaleej newspaper reported in its online edition on July 30, 2009, citing street protests and post-election unrest.  ” Zbigniew Brzezinski, a former US National Security Adviser, described the election debate in Iran as a social and domestic issue, saying: “Controlling Iran’s current issues and developments depends on the tact and intelligence of the Iranian leadership.

At the inception of BBC Persian Radio, the election of a prominent Baha’i leader, Hassan Baliozi, to run it clearly demonstrated the extent to which BBC officials claimed neutrality and adhered to their Charter on the need to maintain the neutrality and restraint of its secretaries, producers and staff.  The networks are honest in political and religious terms.  Baliuzi, a member of the Afnan family and a close relative of Mirza Ali Mohammad Bab, was the first to speak to the radio station at the beginning of the establishment of the Persian BBC;  He had joined the Baha’i National Assembly, Rezvan, a few months earlier.  After the establishment of the Persian section, he became a close adviser to Shoghi Effendi, the last known Bah رهبر’ عنوان leader, and in 1956 became a member of the Bah اد’. Supreme Administrative and Religious Council.  In addition to writing works on the history and propaganda of the Bahائ’. Faith, he chaired for years the “Bah ملی’ ملی National Spiritual Assembly” in the British Isles. 9. Look at: “The BBC pods!”  در a  election..

One thought on “A Brief About The BBC

  1. The head of the BBC World Service at the June 2007 meeting of the House Foreign Affairs Committee described the establishment of the BBC Persian language television as “the highest priority in the proposed program to the State Department, which has very strong records”!

    Do not always lie!
    Some people think that all the staff of the World Service and its Persian section are obliged to work daily and to obey the orders of senior British political officials! But the fact is that the service of this network to the national interests of the United Kingdom is revealed only in critical and crucial moments. The BBC is so professional that in every small case, it does not spend its media credibility.
    Every media outlet, in order to gain credibility with the audience and create a space to instill the necessary things in times of need, must first instill in the minds the belief that it is truthful and impartial; Because constant lying will deprive the audience of trust. The wheel of Britain’s strategic propaganda and public diplomacy does not spin with direct and persistent lies. Therefore, the BBC does not need to lie all the time and always tries to gain the trust of its audience by presenting relatively accurate reports. Incorrect and incomplete images are presented to the audience only in places.

    In this regard, the view of Mohammad Reza Zairi Rouhani, an Iranian activist in the field of press and web who is currently studying in Lebanon, is interesting: “The United States spends its lying coupons for great things … It says I want to spread democracy and it lies but because in The little things are always true, his people believe the big lies, and he claims to be the weapon of mass destruction to start the devastating war in Iraq.The United States says al-Qaeda is a threat to international security, while al-Qaeda created the principle itself, but in small things “To be honest, his people believe the big lie and he is attacking Afghanistan.”
    British public diplomacy also needs the BBC World Service for its various strategic and long-term goals. Therefore, one should not expect the short-term and day-to-day activities of this network to be in line with the announced government policies. Achieving the ultimate goal in the hunt for public opinion can only be achieved in the medium and long term
