... and I think it could be quite good. The idea of ongoing verification of 'stories' is certainly a good one.

I've seen the verifications they do on their website is this something different?

It's the new format of their news programmes on BBC2 and BBC News from 3pm to 5pm. It seems to rely on their own journalist verification as they say "BBC journalists share their evidence gathering."

To me this seems to give a more truthful view than bringing in the one person who opposes a view, time and time again, presenting a false "even-handed", or "balanced" point of view.
