Doesn’t always reliably Inform & Educate
Because of some journalists desire to “entertain” - if you count entertainment as adding sensationalized heat to complex issues, rather than impartial light. I found some of the reports, where I had reasonable knowledge , to be sensationalized. The most recent example is the report that the Solomon Islands were sinking due to climate change.

Trust is precious, please do a better job of protecting the reputation of the BBC.
