The BBC is one of the few public services in the whole world that works pretty much as it ought to and is wildly popular for it (the odd rabid right wing commentator or tycoon with vested interests notwithstanding). So it's disappointing their top brass think hawking off TVC is a good idea. If it's changing stuff for change's sake they want, I have a suggestion that's much less damaging: a new BBC News theme.
Another day, another press release announcing a new series heading to Sky Atlantic. Last month the channel announced they were taking cult favourite Nurse Jackie off BBC Four's hands. It's the latest in a longish list of acquisitions from other channels, Sky's wallet proving too big for the rest of the UK terrestrial broadcasters to compete with. And I say let Sky have them.
