A Bit of a Flutter – please complain to BBC

On Tuesday June 26th – BBC1’s EastEnders featured a discussion between father and daughter on a suggested visit to ‘the dogs’. More specifically the gambling on dogs was referred to as a ‘bit of a flutter’ This particular episode of Eastenders topped 7.5 million viewers – with many more watching on BBC iPlayer and repeats – a large percentage will have also been under 16.

Please write and complain to the BBC regarding their general promotion of dog racing as a sport – while failing to acknowledge the views of licence fee payers who consider dog racing to be inherently cruel. Please also remind them of their failure to accentuate/broadcast the extensive evidence of this cruelty.

When filling in the complaint form – please remember to highlight ‘General BBC’ and ‘Bias’ in the drop down menus when prompted.
