Because there are lots of things that are possible on the BBC (Dr Who, Top Gear, Great British Bake Off, Radio 2, 3 & 4, BBC 4 documentary series, Amazing drama like Ashes to Ashes, Great Expectations, Death in Paradise, New Tricks, Call the Midwives, Sherlock, Poldark, The No 1 Ladies Detective agency - the list goes on and on and on) and it's available because of the way it's funded by us the taxpayers. At a miserly £2.79 a week, that's a steal of a deal.
Now yes, I know, you're not going to like all of the things I listed - but that's the beauty of the BBC. Quality broadcasting, uninterrupted by adverts, promoting educational and entertaining TV for the whole nation and that is what they do. I would hate to have to see Dr Who with adverts every 15 bloody minutes, breaking up the dramatic tension.
Fight for the BBC, it's a national treasure and it deserves our support for providing us and the world with great broadcasting. In the meantime here's some Lou Read. #BBC #savethebbc
