Here's my thrupenny's worth:
â¢ Get rid of BBC Three and Four and bundle everything that doesn't involve drunk teenagers / newly weds onto One and Two.
â¢ Exorcise any "me too" show (The Voice the worst offender)
â¢ Leave Radio alone, although perhaps limit Radio 1 to just one pop/rock festival per year, rather than one per month as they seem to do at present
â¢ More Jonathan Strange, Wolf Hall, Peaky Blinders, The Fall type drama; ditch Holby
â¢ Reconsider why it's necessary for the political reporters to stand outside Dave's house at ten o'clock at night when they could be in a warm studio a mere fifteen minute trot away
Finally keep the licence fee. I've lived in countries where commercial television was the only option and it wasn't a pleasant experience.
