May the Beeb be Heard

The BBC is much like the CBC, only bigger, nastier and more ingrained, if such a thing can be imagined.

What a pleasure then to read in a "Telegraph" at a restaurant in Heathrow yesterday that the Beeb wants to change its tune.

More British, less Yanqui, programming.

Of course, these announcements for all we know may be annual affairs, the Home Office equivalent to the sighting of the groundhog.

Let's hope someone at CBC Control is listening.

You are publicly funded.

Stop showing The Price is Right, Jeopardy, and all other American mind rot.

Pay for News, Comedy, Drama, Children's, docs, and education.

Decide who you really are and go for it.

Welcome back. If the CBC is humble enough to look for a role model, look no further than PBS (IMHO).

Welcome back David! Hope you had a great holiday - and have your shovel ready to help clean up after the party, and the politics of BC. LOL..good to have you back.

FYI, the CBC doesn't show The Price is Right...give it time though...those 10 am kids programs don't increase ratings...
