did BBC show pride or prejudice? With more and more of us accessing


our news via mobile phones and tablet computers, what effect would


that have on the content? Are you shocked that they gave you a death


penalty? Was it the time for that question for someone he was just

Andy Murray's attempt to defeat Novak Djokovic. Quite a few others


were frustrated by the weekly diet of current affairs being disrupted.


The Andrew Marr Show was moved onto BBC Two, to the consternation of


some. Sunday Politics was delayed by almost two hours. One viewer was

television has been changed round just for tennis is a waste of time.


A would have rather seen Sunday Politics, instead of being put off.


It is not good enough. BBC One should keep the same programmes.


Political shows like that have been discussing the topic of Britain's


place in Europe, a debate kicked off again by the Prime Minister's


speech promising a referendum last week. This is a clip of it as it


appeared on the BBC News channel. It is wrong to ask people whether


to stay or go before we have had a chance to put the relationship


right. How can we centre bleak answer the question without being


able to answer the most basic question - what is it exactly we


are choosing to be in or a load of? Were no fewer centres reaction...


Now, since last April, the Breakfast Programme has been


broadcast from Salford, which has necessitated a longer journey for


some of their guests. A few weeks ago, one of the newspaper reviewers


on the red so far was Simon Fanshawe, who came with tales of


our troubles and injury. I came all the way from Britain


because I love you so much. Love to you did not take a plane!


I got to the station having jet website all afternoon in full


expectation the train would be running on time, and three minutes


later it was cancelled. We put that point back to breakfast,


and they responded with this On Thursday, Lindsay Sandiford lost


her case for legal funding for an appeal against the death sentence


should be given a in Bali for drug trafficking. The way the story has


been handled has been controversial in some -- with some viewers. This


is reporter Karishma Vaswani in the courtroom as the sentence was


delivered. Any comment from what% at --


sentence has been? Argue shock they gave you the death penalty?


Visibly shocked and hiding her face from the glare of their cameras,


Lindsey's and -- Lindsay Sandiford refused to speak.


Diana was one of a number of viewers who contacted us with this


response. A reporter that approached Lindsay


Sandiford moments after she was sentenced to death for drug


smuggling and after reaction. Does this reporter have no feelings for


Lindsay Sandiford or the family and friends when she made this


intrusion? Does she honestly think she would expect an answer? I was


shocked and appalled. Coverage of the case has also led to a


different objection voiced by Chris The another viewer observed on


We know from your many e-mails and telephone calls that Newswatch


viewers often disagreed with the priorities given to different


stories by editors in charge of news bulletins, so what would it be


like if news was tailored to be of particularly relevant interest a


year before being delivered to your mobile our tablet computer, a race


is increasingly used for accessing use. That is a proposal from Chris


Russell, the head of product from BBC News Online. Chris, anyone who


looks at the BBC website will see the most viewed section, the idea


of you can choose where to go. What is different about your plans?


We have seen a massive growth in the number of people accessing our


services from mobile phone so. We saw a 50% increase last year, and


the number of people accessing from tablets doubled in 2012 alone.


People increasingly expect to follow things of personal interest


on their mobile devices, so we are working on trying to make the news


more relevant to people when using those mobile devices. Explain how


that would work. Basically, you may be able to select the areas of


interest that you have. It may be a ground where you are located. We


produce a lot of content about local services. It may be about


location based services, and it might just be the way that we can


track and see what you are already looking at and produced stories


that may be of interest to do you, as well. For example, a story about


a big employer that has a national importance, but importance for a


local area, you could direct people to that and find it useful. There


is a worry that if you ask people to click on, water cooler news, as


it is called, it is the fluffy kitten story, that is not news, but


people watch it on the internet. Does the BBC want to be encouraging


that? We clearly want to balance this with a clear editorial voice,


and we don't want people to be accessing news they know they are


interested in and miss out on something incredibly important to


them. We will always balloted with the editorial voice, what the BBC


thinks his most important. We are already seeing that the use of


mobile is not a boat those kind of stories are born, we had a record


use after the presidential election. People are interested in the big


stories and spending more time with tablet devices, getting into the


depth and looking at special features and reading for longer.


Are you interested to see how you can carry them both of? There is a


fear that the editorial news bulletin is the BBC's purpose, and


if you make it easy for people to self-select, not being interested


in politics or American news, people will be accessing stories --


will not be accessing stories that the BBC needs them to be interested


in. Indeed, if you're looking at the wider industry, there are a lot


of services that aggregate things by interest. The interesting


research and development we're doing is looking at how you can


balance that with the editorial. We can see what a BBC journalist made


some light as interesting. There correspondent -- the Correspondent


has Twitter fields, you can see what they find interesting. When


can we expect this? In the next year or two we will be increasingly


developing these services. Finally, it is a truth universally


acknowledged that every item about prejudice -- pride and prejudice


should contain that phrase as if no one else thought of it. There were


many examples as we celebrated 200 years since the novel was published.


It is a much bigger, deeper, more serious, more important novel


banned the movie versions have allowed it to be. We do have a very


jolly, spirited girl in the middle of it, buried - it -- dashing,


handsome and rich man on the other side.


This is the sign the Manchester version of the book.


I want to be Elizabeth falling in love with Mr Darcy over and over


again. Andy were not the only person doing this, are you?


And no, this is a very good friend of mine, Victoria Connolly. This is


Mr Darcy's diary. Yes, and Monica Fairview, who has written Mr


Darcy's cousins. Darcy, Darcy, Darcy.

rumpus around event at the BBC last autumn and the Pollard report into


matters arising from the Jimmy Savile scandal, many have contacted


us to ask how the BBC intends to move on. Transcripts compiled as


part of that increase are due to be published shortly, and once


everything is in the public domain Helen Boaden, the BBC director of


news, will come on the programme to discuss the way forward. Keep your


questions coming in about that and any aspect of BBC News. Next week,
