Brilliant TV

Following 2 hours plus of Grand Prix motor racing, gathering a world wide audience of seven, 3 of whom are tadpoles and one being a moth with mental health issues, they follow it up with Strictly Come Dancing for 2 hours plus!!! Why don't they save money and combine the two....Let them dance, strictly or otherwise, in front of racing cars. That would sort the wheat from the chaff and make time available to televise what non invertebrates would like to watch.

Rant over.

In the same vein, down hill slalom skiing!!. Why don't they replace the bendy gatey type things with concrete posts. That would sort them out.....

Dear Shergar, tis Saturday night what are you doing in your stable?
IMO the BBC is doing all it can to encourage the British public to turn of the TV, I personally will be listening to the Archers omnibus and stitching sequins on to any thing that will sit still long enough.

Thought I'd bump this one -
I've just turned off Countryfile, having been subjected to the joys of teenage driving & the accident rate in East Anglia & surfing in Cornwall.
(Not forgetting all the joys of Adam going to a brewery in Germany)...
Whatever happened to the farming program that this load of irrelevant junk replaced? Methinks the Beeb has lost the plot.

I'm just plain confused - Top Gear was hilarious tonight though :-) Not sure what's going on with Hammond's hair though and Ryan Reynolds is not only good looking but very funny :-)

Panorama are running a documentary on BBC tonight about tent cities in the USA and children having no food, one little girl talks about eating rats.

I know this country has it's problems but I don't see any tent cities here.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/panorama/hi/front_page/newsid_9694000/9694094.stm

It's shocking for a country that is supposed to be rich.

That's only because they're not allowed tents Ladyvibes. There are plenty of adults and children homeless in the UK. A tent city where they could be properly looked after is actually a good idea, the shelters are always full up.

There are a lot of tv companys to choose from but we still have to pay just One broadcasting company by Law or else.

I resent paying this fee to fund this left wing bunch of Luvvies.

The power these corporations wield is fascism in action - thankfully, there are tv license resistance sites on the web which are helping people with some of the issues. I wouldnt object so much if the fee was shared out between the providers that people watch but its the power wielded by the BBC that I object to - wholeheartedly! They actually frighten people on their own doorsteps then punish them for being poor, if it was anybody else they'd be locked up for such behaviour - it isnt as if we have the choice to block the BBC either.

Fascism at its finest!

^^^^^^^^^^^

I wonder if we had the option to block ourselves from receiving BBC channels, how many people would opt out?

I would for one then I wouldn't have to pay a TV licence for a channel I watch once every blue moon.

I think the BBC do a good job. (It could be better though)
I watch a lot of their programs, and often have the BBC News Channel (Ch 80) on all day (IF I'm in)
I'd like to see more consumer programs, and more reviews of products.
(Properly, not like Top Gear)
The BBC are the only TV company that aren't frightened, by the withdrawal of advertising revenues.
They should be scathing in their reviews, and completely independent.
They have some good stuff on BBC Three, and Four too sometimes.
It's only a few pence a day, good value IMO.

I'm with Jo Van on this. I don't begrudge paying the licence fee and think that the BBC does a good job overall. Sure, there are programs they show which I can't stand (I'm looking at you, the One Show) but I'm sure there are people who watch that yet can't stand the type of shows I enjoy.

It costs £12 per month or just 40p per day for your licence fee. I spend double that amount on a cup of tea each morning at work! And compared to the amount I pay Sky each month, the Beeb is incredibly good value for money.

It's a shame that not all of this year's F1 races are going to be shown on BBC1 :(

ps - I should point out that I don't work for the BBC, in case you wondered.

well there is the crux

you have to have a tv licence for the bbc whether you watch
the rubbish they put on or not

cable and sky are payable only if you want to

maybe if the bbc sacked all their high earners and presenters
and gave new folk the chance i might agree with you

money seems to be in no short supply at the beeb, just look at a live
event abroad? there are 100's of the fvckers attend on a freebie.

why does tv and radio need different commentators?

anyway i would actively encourage folk to not buy a licence until they
start paying presenters wha\t they are worth. about £500 per week
would suffice

or even better sack ALL the staff and hire east europeans at the minimum wage
and make them work 14 hour days

To go against the majority I like the BBC, it's much better than what they put on the other channels. At work I'm subjected to itv and it's dire. I love the likes of being human. doctor who, sherlock etc.

People understandably resent not having a choice over the BBC, you can't be dragged into court for not having a sky subscription.

Having said that i think what the BBC puts out is by far and away much superior to the utter shite sky offers (in between endless adverts) The sky bog basic package is over £360 a year and if you want HD it's another £120. That makes the BBC with it's HD included free (if you've got an HD receiver) look like an absolute bargain IMO.
