Livid BBC viewers rip into Springwatch and Countryfile for 'inaccurate and unrealistic' reporting | The Sun

LIVID BBC viewers have ripped into Springwatch and Countryfile for 'inaccurate and unrealistic' reporting.

It comes after people aged 65 and over took part in a poll conducted by the Countryside Allicance.


It has come to light that a whopping 90 per cent of people who have watched the BBC shows don't show an accurate representation of those who live in the countryside.

A further 89 per cent thought that Countryfile doesn't focus on the issues that are important to those who reside in rural areas.

They also pointed out that they think shows should focus on shows that report on rural sports and farming.

Chris Packham – who presents both the popular shows – is against fox hunting and other countryside sports.

The chief executive of Countryside Allicance Tim Bonner said: "The BBC must appreciate that the minority rural audience does not feel fully represented.

"There is a desire for rural programming for the countryside, not just about the countryside.

"In short, rural programming should not only take into account what urban viewers may find of interest."

He added: "Need to showcase the value of important rural activities like farming, shooting, hunting and angling.
