The BBC is a powerful force in Britain and around the world (PA)

The British Broadcasting Corporation is arguably one of the world’s most powerful media entities. Many Catholics have long argued that its output is consistently anti-Catholic. But is it actually hostile to Catholicism or merely ignorant about certain aspects of Church teaching? And could it be that the Catholic Church and the BBC have a built-in rivalry as influential institutions competing to shape Britain’s moral landscape?

In this podcast Jack Valero, coordinator and co-founder of Catholic Voices, and Ed West, deputy editor of The Catholic Herald, debate whether the Beeb is truly the friend or foe of Catholics.

We hope you enjoy the discussion and welcome your feedback.
