AN apocalyptic BBC film showing Gibraltar cut off from the rest of Europe has rocked the international airwaves.
The tongue-in-cheek documentary also shows ISIS terrorists landing in Spain and UKIP leader Nigel Farage at the helm of the British government.
The BBC4 ‘mockumentary’, aired on March 1, focused on the important role played by the Gibraltar border in Europe and the fragile relationship between the Rock and Spain.
Blasted as ‘pro-EU scaremongering’ by Eurosceptics, The Great European Disaster Movie has caused a stir across the continent.
“It is clear that some management in the BBC believe the supposedly independent news organisation must act as a propaganda agent for the EU,” said UKIP MEP and Financial Affairs Spokesman, Steven Woolfe.
“Given that the BBC has received £22 million from the EU, UKIP asks where is the BBC’s EU logo displayed on the programmes that it makes?”
Produced by former Economist editor Bill Emmott, and Italian journalist Annalisa Piras, the film is ‘designed to provoke thought’.
“It’s a warning of what could happen if Europe continues on its current path,” Emmott added.
