    Default British Broadcasting Corporation

    The BBC is paid for by the taxpayers in Britain, yet seems to be very anti-British. I wonder why?

    What do you think of the BBC?

    A dishonest anti-British film, paid for by the British people and broadcast to your children on BBC

    I get two BBC channels out here. One is really quite pleasant as it is mostly nature documentaries or looking at how the things we use are made. It is interesting. The other channel is the news and I do not watch it having given up on the BBC in that area.

    Content from the BBC that I watch online tends to be of a more political nature and frankly I find it disturbing that they are so clearly not neutral. I think the Tommy Robinson situation with Panodrama really released the guillotine on them, and though they have silenced him, they lost a lot of face and credibility as how they work was revealed and it was not professional and ideological.

    Then there is this recent nonsense about women who do less work deserving the same money as men who work more and that is paid for by the public who do not agree with feminists and have to pay by force for the service.

    If they want to be ideological then it should be privatised. Let payment be optional or else feed them to the advertisers. There is better news out there than the BBC which frankly has been losing its way a long time.

    I heard about that program for kids. That is uncool, but made for people like Denilson who want to see only the negative. It shouldn't be forced on kids though as it is a manipulative narrative.

    I can never thank them enough for the Young Ones and Benny Hill. Over here we're also paying for tons of stuff we dislike or find offensive. Didn't some try to get Teletubbies banned for 'gheying up' our little folks.

    They have made a lot of good stuff but a lot of it was before woke culture tried to eliminate fun. They even ruined Alan Partridge as Steve Coogan like them went up his own arse. I still cannot believe a series of Alan Partridge was not very funny.

    What makes characters like Alf Garnett or Alan Partridge or Basil Fawlty or Rik funny is that they are at times cringy, but there is also a truth in those characters too. People do have snobbery, they do have quirks, they do have views that you wince at, but they are just human and don't do genuinely evil things.

    Rik was a parody of hypocritical woke culture way before his time.

    Do you get Only Fools and Horses and Blackadder over there Spic ? How did they go down.

    I was a bit young to see Benny Hill but the Young Ones I was allowed to watch early 80s – many in my class at school weren’t !

    I happened to catch an episode again a couple of years ago – it dates very badly !

    But legendary TV which will long be remembered – amazing looking back at who guest appeared in it and what they’ve gone on to be.
    Don't bully fat kids - they've got enough on their plate

    Man like Mobeen is a good comedy series on BBC. Well worth the license fee not to see adverts.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.
