There are good bits, as Keith said. I saw the Somme docu-drama on More4 last night and thought it was excellent. Trouble is, there is an awful lot of crap as well. I mean, "I'm a celebrity..."? One programme as a novelty maybe, but they're still screening the shite, and ITV is plugging it as though it's some sort of TV Holy Grail.
Since we got a Freeview box I find myself watchng more and more old stuff, like "Rising Damp" and "The Good Life" and leaving the BBC1 and ITV alone. Or maybe it's just that I'm getting old and crusty.
Thank gawd for Radio 4 - especially "I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue", "The Archers", "Any Questions"...the radio's worth the licence fee on its own.
