Bbc

Michael Portillo:
“It is like a polar bear on a receding piece of ice.”
He doesn’t believe the BBC licence fee will survive as young people had no connection to the broadcasting organisation, as they increasingly consumed their media elsewhere through their smartphones and laptops. Suggested that the channel could no longer justify its role as a public service provider.

“There’s not much evidence now on the BBC that it is performing a public service role.
Journalist Ash Sarkar commented, BBC has to adapt or die.

Re: Bbc

We hardly watch, as was pointed out on QT there are no art programmes on BBC, a huge mistake.

We've watched a number of arty type programmes on BBC4.

Re: Bbc

My TV viewing is mostly on other stations with the BBC offerings rarely considered. It would not be quite so bad if they offered a +1hr to each of their Freeview channels, but they do not and that alone in my opinion is NOT considerate to the licence fee payers. Yes, I could record a few offerings, but to be honest there is very little I would consider recording when better programmes IMHO are offered elsewhere that I do record.

Re: Bbc

I do watch a lot of BBC programs, the ads in the other channels really p me off, but it would be good if they did do plus ones on BBC1 & 2.

Re: Bbc

The BBC don't care if you watch their progs they still get your money and their license fee regardless whether you watch them or not so they put on any crap they want to and they don't listen to your complaints either.

Re: Bbc

I watch very little TV but most of what I do watch is BBC.

No doubt Portillo/Cinderella is right about young people ...

they increasingly consumed their media elsewhere through their smartphones and laptops.

Re: Bbc

The bbc are constantly trying to attract young, diverse viewers & listeners but they don't seem to realise they are not interested. We always had Radio4 on in our house but these days it is full of LGBT, unfunny humour and stories about minorities.

I'm not a great fan of the multi-coloured mincer but he is correct.
