“Today, the BBC costs £0.000824133220101170000 per hour.”

September 15, 2008

A sensible post from Stuart Penfold about the Licence Fee.

Of course people like me and Stuart work for the BBC. But at least he advances a rational counter-argument:

“The “Television” argument goes along the lines of “Why should I pay £139.50 per year for EastEnders and endless reality shows which I never watch?”. My own non-scientific study of programmes across the 4 main terrestrial channels for today (15th September 2008) shows that the BBC showed more news/current affairs, sport, children’s and game shows than ITV1 and Channel 4 combined:”

My bet is still on.
