Whilst I was away on holidays in Kos recently, BBC World News was the only option available and it was on BBC World News that I heard the tragic news about the death of the four miners in the Swansea Valley. At that point I was quite impressed with the service with extensive coverage of the Chief Constable of South Wales and the Chief Fire Officer addressing the media and stood next to them was Carwyn and Peter Hain. The report then quickly moved to an interview with David Cameron and Ed Miliband about the tragedy but no comment from Wales's First Minister.
This sums up to me all that is wrong with the BBC's coverage, the BBC should have transmitted Carwyn Jones's response to the tragedy as the First Minister of Wales. This is a perfect example of devolution not even registering with the BBC, so much for impartiality and accuracy in reporting.
