Strangford MP Jim Shannon (above) believes the BBC children’s programme Teletubbies could change attitudes in North Korea. The DUP man has backed a House of Commons motion that calls for BBC programmes to be extended to the Korean peninsula.

The early day motion says: “The broadcast of programmes like Teletubbies would change the attitudes of the North Korean dictatorship, which has incarcerated more than 200,000 of its citizens in gulags.” The Strangford MP said it was “really important to have the BBC in North Korea”.
