Re: Dear BBC
A BLOODY TRAILER
On the BBC World Service, they often name check the service in what seems like within 30 seconds, or ad-nauseam mention that the programme is coming to you live from the centre of the news room at broadcasting house in London.
In the case of name checking the station, I can understand that for a service that goes out across the world where people will be listening in for specific news bulletins or programmes, and need to be able to determine that they have tuned in. But who cares if it comes from the centre of the news room at broadcasting house or the BBC director general's private wash room - just get on with the content without filling up the time with "noise"
