The past few years have made me think of the BBC as the English BC (EBC).

However, just now they finished off the rugby programme with a great anthem 'Tears of a Clown' with Martin Johnston as the feature.

Licence fee almost worth it.

How long before the BBC becomes the Peoples Socialist Revolutionary Banner of Truth?

Some of the BBC weather girls are ok to watch for a few minutes.

Despite losing two out of two, the Sweaties feel it is safe to put their heads above the parapet on the grounds that Wales scraped a win over England. That aside, the interesting matches are yet to come.

And as for the BBC, don't forget about the Celtic (pronounced selltick, not kelltick) Mafia, whom the English firmly believe run the Current Affairs side of things.

Almost accepted, provided that you're a taff. In which case, you've dipped out in every other aspect of the lottery of life by being born west of Offa's Dyke. If, however, you're a Jock then you're in the moral valleys on this one chap!!

Regardless of your unfortunate domestic situation, it was a dismal day for English rugby. :x

The BBC are really keen to be seen as "Non English" these days. Illustrated by the fact they're closing down Television Centre (London) and moving every member of staff out to the "provinces" of Manchester, Leeds, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
They are trying so hard to look "Northern and celtic" whilst at the same time the Celts already have their own gibberish speaking channels. Which already hate the "English" BBC. So a bit of a waste of time then.

Welcome to the 21ts century cave dweller... there have been such programmes since the 60's and channels since the last millenium. The provincial TV we have these days is Farkin Eastenders innit.

Apart from that, the BBC are trying to look less British.

Seem to remember we called the BBC "Ministry of Information" after 1982.

And George Orwell had nothing to do with it!!!!!!!!!!

And "woss" getting over 4MILLION A YEAR!

THATS MORE THAN some of THE TOP WAHNKERS IN "OUR" BANKS.

I really dont see why we still need to pay a TV licence.

The BBC PLC make more money selling services and programs than they receive from the tv licence.

Simply answer is "Any tv company applying for a Broadcasting licence" is required to produce a minimum of hours from the following per year:

50 Hours Comedy

50 Hours Factual reporting.

50 Hours SOAP.

50 Light entertainment.

Transmit from other sources:

25 hours soap.

etc

etc.

Too simple really. So I wont hold my breath.

Roll on the revolution????
