BBC Countryfile Presenter: 'The Countryside Is Racist'


BBC Countryfile presenter Ellie Harrison has insisted that “the countryside is racist” after the BBC courted controversy by reporting that many minorities see it as a “white environment”.

Writing in the magazine associated with the BBC mainstay, which debuted on television over thirty years ago, Harrison said: “In asking whether the countryside is racist, then yes it is; but asking if it’s more racist than anywhere else — maybe, maybe not.”

She had been responding to a controversy involving BBC coverage of a government report on the supposed exclusion of minorities from the countryside, fronted by fellow presenter Dwayne Fields.

The broadcaster drew the ire of many on social media when it stated that “many in Black, Asian and minority ethnic [BAME] groups see the countryside as being a white environment” on Twitter.
