Hopefully now a line has been drawn, but this does leave some issues of the BBC. Notably it's role as a public service provider.
Whilst, and this is important, one has to be aware that some of the critics on this issue have an agenda in wanting to see the BBC broken up and privatised, it is equally the case that the BBC's remit is to educate, entertain, and inform. That means not pandering to the lowest common denominator and trying to ape other media outlets in the commercial sector (although that is understandable). Being a public service provider, the BBC has done exceptionally well in the past and has a worldwide reputation. It should, and ought, to be better than it's competitors in style and taste because it can afford to be and there is a need for it. It has made sterling documentaries, brilliant TV Drama (as shown recently with Little Dorrit), and, ironically enough, created some exceptional chat show programmes. It has the stature, the ability, I only wish it had more confidence.
