Letter To The BBC Director General

Tim Davie, BBC Director-General

Dear Mr. Davie,

I wonder if you are aware of a CBeebies video currently airing on the BBC under the title, CBeebiesplaylist – Videos to make you think. See link.


This video shows a heterosexual couple, a man and a woman, going out for a walk with their new baby. They declare that they are a lesbian couple. One of them is clearly a man. So, this video is telling children that a man is a lesbian. Men cannot be lesbians.

Lesbians are females who are same sex attracted.

 There are a number of implications.

  • Lying to children.
  • Encouraging the invisibility and erasure of lesbians.
  • Promoting hatred against lesbians (as some comments on the CBeebies FB page are abusive towards women and lesbians who pointed out the above).
  • Breaking the Equality Act 2010
  • CBeebies is aimed at children under 7. Showing them a couple who seem obsessed with the image they present when ‘going for a walk with their baby’ does not seem appropriate material for children to view, apart from the hideous lie at its centre.

Yet again, trans ideology is promoted here at the expense of groups with protected characteristics, in this case lesbians. I urge you to have this video removed, and I would suggest an inquiry into the people who allowed it on CBeebies, and thought it suitable material. If this kind of insidious propaganda is acceptable to the BBC, it deserves to lose its licence as a public service broadcaster. I say this as someone who previously admired and supported the BBC, but who has become increasingly disenchanted with the irresponsible material it now puts out. This does not ‘inform, educate and entertain.’ It does the complete opposite.

I await your reply with interest.

Yours sincerely,

Elaine Hutton
