Well, every day's a school day. Who knew that ITV ran a huge swathe of radio stations covering about every genre, as well as a global broadcasting service. Who knew?Have you ever seen just how massive the BBC's offices are behind Broadcasting House? Or the size of their offices compared with ITV's at Salford Quays?
Both national broadcasters, with the same basic brief, the difference is one is funded by a tax and is literally unaccountable, and the other commercially funded and accountable to its share holders via a dividend.
The Beeb's powers that be want to be privatised, its archives and rights are worth billions and can't be sold until they p1ss everyone off in govt enough to be sold off. Wheels within wheels.
Public service, my Arrse!
