The thing to remember about BBC is that it's a government owned broadcaster. This is advantageous in some areas because while corporate media always has an agenda, state-controlled media only has a few key interests. When it comes to news and current events, BBC is a propaganda organ that serves the governments needs. In other areas, it has relatively free reign to be objective.
Very good poster Gotter is.
Probably the most fair presented by the BBC.
we are in a changing period. Painful but also enjoyful.
Concerning the interview with Helmut Schmidt, she does an interview with him almost every year so I don't know which interview you're referring to, but the links I read has her asking him negative loaded questions about China in every interview. Closest thing I found to him saying "stop your nonsense" is when Sandra Maischberger pressed him on what Germany should do where he says "That's the beer". Is that the interview you're talking about or was that a bad translation? What does the term "That's the beer" mean in Germany?

AFAIK, there has been two interviews between H. Schmidt and Maischberger. The one in 2008 was specifically because of the OG and the propaganda battles against China. The second one was a rather general interview shortly after Schmidt's wife Loki died. The contents of the interview was very broad.
I think he said: Das ist nicht mein Bier (this is not my beer), which means that's non of my business.

It's not military related, but there's a fascinating documentary running on the UK's Channel 4 (a private TV group) about China
