Fascinating insight into how some BBC employees respond to the views of others. Here’s an alarming item from Toby Young writing in the Telegraph…

“About a week before last night’s documentary about the West London Free School was broadcast, the director asked me if I minded my house number appearing in the film. I said no, but a few minutes later I changed my mind and rang her back. Judging from the reaction among Twitter’s resident lefties, that’s just as well.

“Anyone keen for some direct action against the new free schools (or against Toby Young, personally)?” Tweeted a member of the Socialist Workers Party. Well, yes, in fact, there was. “I don’t think there’s been one person yet on Toby Young’s BBC2 documentary about starting a school that I wouldn’t happily punch to death,” Tweeted Marc Haynes, a disc jockey who works for the BBC. That’s a bit alarming considering that my four children were featured throughout. Do you want to punch my two-year-old to death, Marc?
