Welcome to news watch. Coming up in a few minutes, why this provoked
the ire of our viewers. The Euro 2012 football tournament in
Poland's keeper of a week ago. Much of the news coverage focused on the
behaviour of fans from the to host countries. Here is the Sports
Editor from the news that six last Friday.
Under way, but overshadowed. Euro 20 tour opened in Walsall with a
colourful ceremony. After so many problems organisers, it was a
relief to see the first game between Poland and Greece -- Warsaw.
It is still racism that is dominating the agenda.
Should it have been dominating the BBC's agenda? There were monkey
noises by fans directed towards Dutch players. They have been
clashes between Russian and Polish fans. Several news watched the was
thought that the BBC was taking things that a proportion. Two of
them joins us now. Aggie Pretka and Karolina Zaleska. Karolina Zaleska,
what did you not like about the coverage about the pre-tournament
games and activities? I did not like the fact that BBC was looking
for a sensational before anything happened. I do not like the fact
that they were scaring people off from coming to Poland. They made
the whole nation look like a nation of racists an his amateur its and
people who were not welcoming towards other nations. -- anti-
semetics. Every country has a problem of racism. A handful of
people should not overshadow the whole country. It was a fantastic
welcoming. Aggie Pretka, what do you think about the coverage?
imagine if someone in Poland decided to do a document or decided
to start news slowing -- showing the riots in London. It can had a
lot of incidents. People are damaging property, cars on fire,
houses on fire. People being injured. It does not say that the
whole of England is like that. It does not say that it is unsafe for
people to come for the Olympics here. That would not be before
Peter, would it? James, what is your response to viewers. -- that
would not be truthful. This are serious and major issues. It does
seem that There are, admittedly small pockets, but the Manly race
since -- the Manly racist fans. It is an issue that we should tackle.
-- vehemently. We had not betrayed pollens as a whole like this.
certainly gave it a lot of prominence -- Poland. We did give a
prominence. The issue deserves prominence. It is right that we
give it that attention. It is not disproportionate attention. We
would cover events similar early in this country. Racism is a serious
issue in this country. We have covered this issue in our country.
The audience takes the seriously. I take the point that if you're here
and you're Rigside in Poland, you are not pleased to see your country
held in that light -- your Origin is in Poland. Was it an issue that
deserve to receive attention? but polisher parity should do
everything to punish people who were involved in it. -- the Polish
police. The only news I could hear on the radio or television was
about the few stupid people, hooligans, not the majority of
football supporters who should be ashamed of their behaviour. Dg note
that there were thousands of people wearing orange T-shirts, supporting
the team as well? No-one could see that he could they? Karolina
Zaleska, what do you think of what you have heard? One thing is to
President facts the way they are. The other is to ask questions to
footballers, are you going to go into the street? Are you afraid? We
take your family or rye you're afraid they will end up in a car
then? The Russian and Polish fans did not be paved the way they
should. But the issue is focused on one country -- One nation. -- did
not behave the way. Hopefully, the tournament will progress in an
entertaining and successful way if the host countries do well, it
looks possible. The event may well move on from this. We will cover
that as well. We will cover the exuberance and excitement. It would
be wrong not to cover this. I take what is being said, we risk
diminishing and downplaying something that is a major issue. It
is not the whole of the Polish population, but it is a major issue
worthy of news coverage. Thank you to Aggie Pretka and Karolina
Zaleska. They have been other Euro 22 of related complaints. The
televising of matches on BBC One has led to schedule changes. --
Euro 2012. -- schedule. The news appeared later and their wares more
annoyance when the British team played them that. This was the
half-time update. Typical England, we have had the smiles and the
tears. Friends equalised a few minutes later. Let's get the
people's verdict. Had you think we went? The response, how is the
English score breaking news? We have matters and highlights on BBC
One. That's his way to stay. There was an equally frosty response from
this piece at the funeral of the singer and The Bee Gees Robin Gibb.
We are remembering someone who has been a member of this committee for
30 years. We are remembering one of the greatest songwriters. When will
someone a rainy and the ridiculous behaviour of your reporters? There
was another reporter centre-stage this week following flooding caused
by persistent rain in England and Wales. This is how the news that
seeks reported the story. Where joined from West Sussex. It
has been particularly bad? -- we are.
The best thing we can say is that rain has finally stopped.
If you're in melds: -- a viewer e- mailed: The prime minister has had
a challenging week appearing at the Leveson Inquiry and facing
considerable embarrassment over the story.
David Cameron is distraught after he had realised he had left his
daughter in a pub after a Sunday lunch with friends. Downing Street

travelling in separate cars. Our correspondent is there.
