    Silenced Greek TV ready to get back on air, could it happen to the BBC?

    Silenced Greek TV ready to get back on air, could it happen to the BBC?

    ‘No matter what happens the news will go live, even if there’s an earthquake, a fire or if we all die. News will go live or it’s a dictatorship.’ This is what editors of Greece’s state broadcaster ERT stated. That has always been the attitude of broadcasters; way back in my BBC years, it was always an unspoken agreement that the News would continue, it was then and could still be a vital part of our freedom to communicate in an impartial and unbiased way. If the BBC were to fail, I suppose we would go back to radio, local community radio and even HAM radio – somehow there would be people who would make it their business to continue broadcasting, it’s bit like a bug! However, let’s not forget that there are many countries in the world where free broadcasting does not happen, so let’s be protective and proud of what we have.
