In November 2007, the BBC Trust published an Independent Editorial Adviser’s report into an appeal to the Editorial Standards Committee by Lord Pearson of Rannoch. Lord Pearson’s initial complaint had been based on the findings of a previous Newswatch survey undertaken in Autumn-Winter 2006, and the IEA report marked the first significant attempt by the BBC to engage with Newswatch’s methodology and survey data on anything more than a superficial level. This survey addresses the findings of the IEA report, and also presents a fourteen-week survey of the Today programme, beginning on Monday 10 September 2007.
