Includes a couple of little gems:
God knows there are problems, but the BBC is really special, Brits. You don’t know what you have over here
Perhaps you’re approaching this in the wrong way. Clearly there is a you-shaped gap in the BBC’s staggering array of original programming. Why not identify what it is the BBC doesn’t offer you and send them a suggestion? They have to listen. Honestly, I would be interested in the answer, too. You mentioned Battlestar Galactica vs. Doctor Who, but you don’t like Spooks? What about the new Torchwood?
…I don’t think any top-slicing should occur. Also the argument that the BBC should lower the fee until they operate on the level of ITV etc is absurd too for many reasons. What I do like, is that BBC sharing their developments, for example their sharing the BBC iPlayer technology with ITV.
