Our thanks to Stuart for some rare good news from the BBC, the prospect of less output. Zero output would be perfect. An extract:
The hearing at the House of Commons also covered a wide range of other programmes and issues:
Victoria Derbyshire Show – He [J4MB: Lord Hall, Director-General of the BBC] said the £3m budget for the BBC Two programme, which is being axed, is too much for an audience of 300,000, who are “more male and older than you might think”. [J4MB emphasis: Which surely explains why the programme is being axed.] But he said he hoped “Victoria herself and the journalism which they do will find a home on the News Channel and elsewhere around the BBC”. However, Derbyshire tweeted that those audience ratings “completely ignored” digital figures for stories that wouldn’t have been commissioned if the TV programme didn’t exist.
