Letters to the Editor


From the UK Telegraph on the programme content of the BBC, funnily enough TVNZ and RNZ immediately come to mind.

SIR – Andrew Papworth (Letters, July 22) defends the services provided by the BBC. However, the corporation only caters for some minorities – classical music lovers being the prime example.

It does not cater for the retired audience, which is now pretty large and has particular concerns. It makes special programmes for the Scots and Welsh, but not the English.

In the main the BBC caters for people like its employees: left of centre, sports-mad metropolitans aged between 35 and 55, with little understanding of, and indeed almost contempt for, the views and interests of middle England.
