... but not enough. If the hand wavers could cut evening and daytime programmes as well, we might be getting somewhere.

1. Ditch that 24hr news crap that they dish out, along with all the luvies that appear on it, and replace it with a proper objective news service.
2. Sack that tosser Harrabin and all the other 'correspondents' they constantly have on.
3. Start using proper weather forecasters instead of the bunch of idiots at the met office.
That would be a start, should save a few million I think

one other thing stop pushing DAB like they have a stake in it (or do they?)

A graduated approach would be a good start, perhaps the News, Newsnight and all of the other "Noos" (Radio London).

NB: I tried to paste a picture here, but no go?

Anyway, it was the BBC test card with that girl on it... I thought it might make a reasonably priced replacement.

World news 24, should be dropped yesterday, if you've been unfortunate enough to have switched it on abroad - it is a advocacy channel for multiculturalism, AGW and we luv India and South Africa/any African country........any country other than Britain.

Yep, dump the met office contract.


ON second thoughts: NO, in fact sell the whole lot off, privatise it now.

Yes. Sell it. They already show plenty of adverts for their own produce eating into program times so they could carry adverts without upheaval.

Is it really a massive issue for the BBC to *return* to ceasing to broadcast late at night? It's not that long ago that they were doing it and they still fill airtime with CEEFAX pages too.(As does ITV with Nightscreen)

Go further. Make BBC 3 and 4 into BBC 1+1 and 2+1, or just to be different BBC1 Yesterday and BBC2 Yesterday. There are loads of repeats anyway so no one will notice.

The sickness that pervades the BBC is the notion that the biggest player in town, Rupert Murdoch, must be competed against. Is that what the BBC Charter says it is for? Even the specious bumper funding to persuade people to go digital just fractured two half decent channels with variety into 8 channels - BBC Heat, BBC Repeats, BBC Freaks and BBC Open University, BBC What Sky Just Said and the three children's channels - CBBC, Cbeebies and Parliament.

Close it down and let's hope someone does a reality show of their attempts to get work in the real world......though it would never be shown, as it would be deemed as too cruel.

Yes, what is it with all that hand waving? And why can Al Jazeera presenters do 2 hours solo, while the BBC kids need to be in pairs, and look like frightened rabbits?

Quite and while all news networks seem to have agendas, it's come to something when Al Jazeera seems the more trustworthy. PDT_Armataz_01_19

O/T, So the reports on the budget is that the low paid are to be £45 a year better off, thats 86p a week, probably buy a bit of old rope for that. Even better buy a bit of old piano wire, so we can string ALL our public servants (Those in the house) up on the lamp posts around westminster. They deserve no better. PDT_Armataz_01_19

I do think in my opinion ,that this budget is the one that the common people might just realise that the piss as been taken a tad to much. The next 12 months should be very interesting . thank you Richard . PDT_Armataz_01_25

Is it true 20% of BBC staff have applied for to be on 'The Apprentice' ?
Of course none of those earning between £200 K and £900 k a year could consider it.

Of course some took the £4 million and got out when the going was good.
