In Britain we have a complex relationship with our national broadcaster. We love to snipe and we’re incredibly quick to point out its failings. At the moment the BBC is being battered in Westminster by people who only a few months ago were being berated for their own corruption.
Let’s not forget that we have a service that is envied throughout the world. It is still putting out top quality programmes. Television takes the majority of the license fee, but its poor relation, radio, is still producing outstanding results.
If you have a while, make yourself a pot of tea and cut a few slices of lemon drizzle cake and listen to this.
