BEN FOGLE SHOW BRANDED BIASED – A NEW British TV programme about Cyprus has been blasted as “biased” against Turkish Cypriots.

In an episode of the Channel 5 series Lost Worlds, presenter Ben Fogle is sent “on a mission to understand what followed the brutal war in the 1970s that left Cyprus split in two and displaced a third of its population”.

The programme was filmed earlier this year, with Mr Fogle and his film crew given special access by the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (Unficyp) to film in the buffer zone dividing North and South Cyprus, in places such as the abandoned Nicosia International Airport.

However the programme has been slammed by many viewers for its numerous references to the Turkish “invasion” of Cyprus, with no explanation of the reasons for Turkey’s military intervention launched on July 20, 1974.
