Contractual & Legal Obligations:
–These links covered the information I needed for the first section of my report, and I didn’t need to find any other sites as these contained everything. However, I sometimes found it necessary to quickly double check facts on other sites, just to back up information. The legislation sites were a bit heavy to go through, but there were useful basic points I was able to pick out of them.
-These organisation websites gave me the information I needed to write the second section of my report, but it was necessary to cross-check the facts as some of the pages, especially on the BECTU website, were solely written to encourage people to become members, and didn’t show all sides of the information.
Miriam O’Reilly and Countryfile:
The whole story
Who/what was involved
What are current issues on it/ Both sides to story
“O’Reilly, in her initial reaction to Atkinson’s comments, said: “At one time we didn’t think black people should sit next to white people on a bus but fortunately we live in a fair and civilised society.”
“I didn’t run to the courts because I was dropped from Countryfile, as Rowan Atkinson presumed,” she tells me. “It was because of what happened afterwards. I had accepted work in radio and that work was withdrawn because I didn’t keep my head down.”
What are current issues on discrimination in the BBC:
-All these links contain a lot of detail into the story of Miriam O’Reilly, as well as all the other relevant issues that I needed to cover in my report. The newspaper websites, such as the Guardian, Telegraph, and the Daily Mail, have a lot in common in their articles, which lead me to believe that when they written, a lot of cross-checking was done among each other. In fact, these links had so much more detail than I needed for my report that I got sidetracked and started reading more into articles than I needed to, which became useful when I had to comprehensively explain the whole story in a small word count.
