Auguste Rodin, Icarus
Sea Study, 1881
"In April 2006 a report was published, commissioned by the BBC governors, on the impartiality of BBC coverage. The report… [noted]… that there was ‘an absence of historical background and deficiencies in the provision of other contexts’, and ‘there was little reporting of the difficulties faced by the Palestinians in their daily lives’. It commented on the ‘incomprehension of viewers and listeners’ and that: ‘One important feature of this is the failure to convey adequately the disparity in the Israeli and Palestinian experience, reflecting the fact that one side is in control and the other lives under occupation’. The report concluded: ‘In short, we found that BBC output does not consistently give a full and fair account of the conflict. In some ways the picture is incomplete and, in that sense, misleading’."
