BBC Overstretch

I was surprised to see in the paper today that the BBC's commercial arm, BBC Worldwide, was intending to branch out with thirty new channels.

Isn't this the same BBC that has just axed 2,000 jobs?

What are they thinking?

They really are playing up to the Bremner, Bird and Fortune sketch last night: where a new member of a TV station's staff is told that he is going to cover all the news right of the British Isles on the globe.

The amount of repeats is going to be astronomical at this rate.

I mean I don't get to see everything I want to, but invariably they never repeat the programe that you want to watch.

So there is going to be even more choice of badly done programmes spread all over the globe.

I can't wait.
