Top BBC Watch posts of 2014

Over the last twelve months the posts we have published here at BBC Watch have collectively received well over 460,000 views and this is an ideal opportunity to thank you – our readers – for your interest and support throughout the past year. We would also like to thank all those who have taken the trouble to contact us with feedback, updates on your complaints to the BBC and tips concerning items of BBC content. Your contributions are invaluable – please carry on in the New Year.

We were particularly honoured and touched by the fact that during the past summer when conflict raged in Israel and the atmosphere in Europe deteriorated to worrying depths of hate and animosity, many of you – particularly in the UK – wrote to us to share your feelings and concerns at that difficult time.Happy New Year
