Thread Name: Change of heart at The BBC??
Subject: RE: Change of heart at The BBC??
Strange indeed when the way things have been going recently is towards Radio2 becoming more like Radio1. Radio4 is suffering from an identity crisis, and is trying to be all things to all men with programmes like Veg Talk, which is a good programme, but pure Radio2 material. Radio1 is trying to be all the local stations in the UK rolled into one, combining garage, hip hop, bangra, ska, etc, and all the other genres I've never heard of. Mostly though I worry about the concerted efforts of government ministers to rubbish the Today programme, with John Reid, and John Prescott being in the vanguard of this apparent search and destroy mission.
