The BBC: A Triumph

Many people complain about the BBC licence fee, http://www.bbc.co.uk/info/licencefee/ of £131...and I personally think it should come from tax , however I think it represents great value for money , especially recently as there have been a spate of BBC wonders They include the extremely funny and poinant "The Royle Family " http://www.beebfun.com/rf.htm http://www.bbc.co.uk/comedy/guide/articles/r/roylefamilythe_66602940.shtml I cant remember the last time I have laughed and cried so much at the cathoyd ray. "Suez: A very British crises " http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/6045808.stm eroditly explains how the Suez debacle pinpontes the time Britian lost its imperialst power and standing and brings up an uncanny resembalance to the current Iraq nightmare...both Tony's tried to fool the public , lie and cheat...Of course Suez didn't cost £4Billion ..or waste 655,000 lives..and it brought down the PM.... Finally "Fear of Fanny " http://www.beebfun.com/rf.htm unravels the bitchiness and horror of TV cook Fanny Craddock , what a nasty piece of work. However the acting and script made one sympathise with a monster .. With such excellent TV entertainment as "Have I got news for you " , " Simon Schama's Power Of Art " , "Later with Jools Holland " , "Catherine Tate " and The Culture Show " proove that square eyes have never had it so good...
