I've been off work for 2 days with a dodgy stomach. A gift from my grandchildren, the school age one of whom was probably gifted with the bug from her school. So this morning I'm feeling better and have been watching sports relief charity. It's entertaining and I think the causes are worthwhile. I expect the missus will be phoning up at some stage to chuck a contribution in. She usually does. What occurred to me though was that while the causes are worthwhile and it is an entertaining watch, there must be some pretty hefty bills to pay to make all this happen. That's something that had me thinking, well, the BBC is a public corporation and it's public money being spent to do all this. I'm talking about where some woman is sent to the South Pole to ride a bike. To get to the region means flying in Russian aircraft that can land on ice. That isn't cheap to do or what about the two fellah's cycling the length of britain, oh and their entourage complete with flashing orange warning lights etc. Again that costs a pretty packet! So! Is it all good worthwhile entertainment that the BBC should spend public funds on or are we subsidising a bunch of luvvies to have a party and get some public exposure on our buck? To be fair, I'm not disputing that some incredibly hard work is done by some "stars" to raise the dosh but should there be a different way of funding it?
