100 years of the BBC
National treasure or overbloated, overfunded protector of PAEDO'S?

Thats enough about the Royal Family .... how about the BBC who were 100 years old yesterday?

In my view it needs a strip back from the endless levels and channels and a cull of people like Lineker being paid a million quid when there would be queue round the block of better performers at a tenth of the price.
The licence fee should be scrapped and replaced with SOME government contribution and while not going as far as advert breaks from McDonalds et al but to have sponsorship of shows like the dancing & cooking nonsense and EastEnders etc

that all the best BBC stuff is in 4:3 is a bit telling.

“Our BBC?”
Not for the majority view of this country.
Don’t recognise them anymore.
Certainly don’t trust them.

Yes, it is Radio 4 Long Wave. I read that it was the Archers.

If anyone fucks about with Test Match Special there will be blood.

That criteria may well have been laid down when Radio 4/The Home Service was broadcast on AM at a frequency and power that could reach deep-lying nuclear submarines.

The world is rapidly running out of the technology needed to make such broadcasts - although there may be stockpiles of such shit languishing in a long-forgotten ex-Soviet warehouse somewhere..

That is a great bit of trivia! Love it. Guess it makes total sense as well. I'd like to know what the other three are, now.

The TV License is a tax. And offers absolute nothing to myself. The sooner they do away with it. They quicker you will find how much people really want it.?

Re: 100 years of the BBC
Bit of trivia - The broadcast of BBC Radio 4's Today programme is famously one of the official measures the Royal Navy uses to prove that the UK still exists. If it can't be picked up by nuclear submarines during their isolated missions for three days in a row, then it could signify Britain's demise, triggering the doomsday protocol.

Re: 100 years of the BBC
I used to really like a load of the BBC's output from years ago, the Big Match was better but MoTD was always a must watch, and I used to really like stuff like Play For Today and the fact that they'd stick on some decent foreign films, that ITV would never have bothered with.

They've just one downhill though, particular lowpoint for them (imho), was their tryin to scare everyone witless every morning during lockdown.

It's just the little things as well, quiz programmes such as House of Games, where the contestants get a big "well done" for identifying a breed of a dog, with the anagram of 'ODLOPE' as happened last night. "NICELY PLAYED"..."And well done anyone watching who got that" etcetc...

I'd miss radio 6, that's it.

An absolute national institution and have absolutely no problem paying the license fee as it's worth every penny for the local, national and international broadcasts coverage...

I reckon you'd feel a whole lot better if you just came out of the closet, Sven.

Its 2022, for christ's sake. No one will batter an eyelid.

Re: 100 years of the BBC
Rather than in programme advert breaks I was talking about companies paying to be the sponsor of shows .... mentioned at beginning and end as in 'brought to you by ...'
ie EastEnders proudly brought to you by the Samaritans
Bake Off proudly brought to you by Fat Cunt Cake Mix
Strictly proudly brought to you by Spangly Gay Trouser Co.

What would I miss?
5Live
6Music
Natural history stuff with D Attenborough
Music & arts doco's on BBC4
That show where Fiona Bruce tries to prove whether art is fake or not with the help of Phillip Mould and a bloke called Bender
Wimbledon
The World Cup
Test Match Special
Elizabeth Rizzini doing the weather on the London news

"Although it's lost its way it still makes great documentaries."

Some of the criminally underrated Storyville documentaries (which haven't been made since 2018) are excellent, but I can't think of many others.

I'm one of the few that doesn't get moist over Attenborough, though.
