As “promoted” by the Daily Mail and The Sun, and properly endorsed by The Guardian by saying “Syrian Journey: why the BBC is right to make a game about the refugee crisis“.

From Robin Emery, BBC Academy:
Last night on BBC One, the Richard Dimbleby Lecture for 2015 was broadcast from the Science Museum in London.
The focus on this year’s lecture was the subject of digital.
Martha Lane Fox, founder of lastminute.com, digital pioneer, baroness and chancellor of the Open University, delivers this year’s Richard Dimbleby Lecture. She will challenge us all – leaders, legislators, and users – to understand the internet more deeply and to be curious and critical in our digital lives in order to tackle the most complex issues facing our society.
This is interesting viewing and I encourage you to watch and learn how digital is changing our lives.
A full transcript of the lecture is available here: http://www.doteveryone.org.uk/
You can watch the lecture in full now on the BBC iPlayer (UK only): http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b05p9tvt/the-richard-dimbleby-lecture-30032015

Also worth looking, this BBC News compilation: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-27838034. Also this one, which was an exercise of capturing every “jihad” attack around the world in November 2014: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-30080914.
I can imagine which bit will be “un-subscribed” first…
