Still head and shoulders above any Yank outfit. Unbiased journalism.
I have been watching it recently a lot. They still have the best
comedy (The thick of it ,little Britain, the office,Gary's War -
original and brilliant)
documentaries and Science programmmes are second to none. Yes they
have shit shows as well but that hasn't changed. Looking back 20
Dealwe had Noels House Party and Mr Blobby. Now Noel is on Deal or no
(more junk). Was a time when the BBC catered for the thinking man (at
least BBC 2 did). Up to a point it still does.
The news is simply the best. You just have to look at Fox news
propoganda to see that it is an order of magnitude better It has on
occasion been accused of being too left but I don't go along with
that. The childrens content has always been the best and still is.
Needs to go a little upmarket I think to stear away from independent
TVs reality shows.
It is interesting that 30 years back the Brititish used to laugh at
how stupid the Japanese were with their 'Endurance" program. Now we
have the same shit on a regular basis. There is still enough good
material to go round however.
Is there any political prorgam as good as 'Question Time"??? Totally
unbiased since they have all parties present.
In Scotland BBC anti independence propaganda has reached such blatant
proportions that even the Brit Nats admit it. You have to be
here,literally, because they won't allow people outside Scotland to
access Scottish news.
Paranoid nonsense, Chic. You can receive all the BBC and ITV regions on
satellite TV. When STV dropped a couple of my wife's favourite networked
programmes in favour of locally produced (i.e. cheaper) dross, she
simply watched them on ITV London.
