    I’ve glanced through some of your links; the ones I have look at appear to be highlighting good content the BBC has produced.

    If I understand correctly: the argument you appear to be trying to make is that all this good stuff won’t be made if there is top slicing.

    But surely the problem is that the people who propose top-slicing believe and assert that this kind of good content will still be made. So making a case in this way reinforces the views of those who are already against top-slicing, but does nothing to change the minds of those who are considering it.

    Some of the links go to arguments rather than BBC content.

    Who will make this content other than the BBC?

      Ah cheers: I’ll take a look through more of the links and read some of the arguments.

      When I said “will still be made”, I should have, more precisely, said: “will still be made by the BBC”

      I firmly believe top-slicing is the start of the ill-advised slippery slope; however in the immediate aftermath of some kind of top slicing coming into effect, the BBC will still continue to produce good stuff. The corporation won’t suddenly implode and/or throw out its schedules overnight 🙂

    Perhaps – but it may have an effect sooner than you think.
