BBC overboard on Rising coverage

Published 31/03/2016

I wonder if RTE would give saturation coverage to any other UK national celebration in the way the BBC used every channel to cover the Easter Rising?

Are the BBC not aware that most people here can get RTE and that is highly unlikely that republicans will have watched, or listened, to their output anyway?

Who was their intended audience - the unionist population?
