ABSTRACT The article focuses on the British Broadcasting Corp.'s (BBC) production strategy and its impact on the BBC's news output in the coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It reviews Critical Discourse Analysis literature concerning the use of a news outlet's final output in unraveling the social and discursive world of reporters. It examines interviews, internal style guides, secondary data and textual material with a particular focus on the role played by the BBC College of Journalism in transforming news progressively until it reaches its final shape. It suggests that the social reality of the BBC's coverage practices concerning the Israeli/Palestinian struggle result from the actions of specific social actors.
