What would be the alternative to a liberal metropolitan bias?


But people forget that the programmes BBC often make would not get done by other channels.

Strictly would become a shouty mess. Bake Off would get filled full of product placement and adverts.

Eastenders, I'll give you that.

But then the BBC allows programmes to find their feet, such as Only Fools and Horses.

And never forget BBC Bristol Natural History Unit with David Attenborough.
