Would do you think of the BBC?

Do you watch it? Listen to it on the radio or read news from it's website?

There's a lot of programs made by the BBC.

OT: BBC news is far more fair and balanced than many alternatives, though they have their own issues. Like Piers Morgan.

everything British looks dated.

Most of the stuff Trebor linked was way old.

Why the chuff are AbFab and TOTP even getting a mention? Doctor Who is where it's at...

I enjoy the BBC. I like the ad free radio, and ad free TV. The David Attenborough documentaries are altogether awesome.

Also that show with the penguin spy cameras is hilarious.

I like the fact that you don't have to watch any adverts or crap like that. Programs I enjoy on the Beeb:

Russell Howard's Good News
World's Craziest Fools
Death in Paradise
Silent Witness

I even enjoy some of the daytime crap like Saints and Scroungers and Homes Under the Hammer

The only worthwhile television channels are BBC (or Dave, which is reliant on the BBC for all of its material).

The best thing about the BBC is the radio archives. Masses and masses of lectures from prominent figures on anything worth learning about. Bertrand Russel's spring to mind.

Documentaries are on another level, especially when it comes to Physics. And they aired That Mitchell & Webb Look, so really there's nothing to complain about.

Aren't Richard Feynman's lectures all in the BBC archives as well?

They are indeed. As are a collection of George Orwell's letters from his time working at the BBC.

If anyone's into Orwell by the way, Radio 4 are doing a whole heap of programmes about him at the moment.

BBC4 sometimes does great music documentaries and live performance compilations.

Sherlock - all of those unfortunate Americans who haven't been exposed to this should go find a copy.
I also like the BBCNews channel, and their political stuff like Question Time.
They have plenty good comedies, like Have I Got News For You and Charlie Brooker's Weekly Wipe and Mock The Week and The Mighty Boosh and The Armstrong and Miller show and That Mitchell and Webb Look and plenty good and classic sitcoms that I won't bore you by listing.
They have Jools Holland doing good music, and they have David Attenborough doing good animal watching stuff.
They have a range of radio stations which don't interrupt with car insurance adverts and phone in competitions every five minutes, and they have the iPlayer which is the best online TV website I have come across.
It's not all good, they have plenty rubbish daytime telly shows, I don't care for the likes of The Apprentice and a lot of the stuff they show on BBC3 is crap (but some stuff on that channel is great).

I like the BBC a lot.

That's all I have to say about that.

I was going to post a list of BBC shows, some of which I already said, then I decided to just post this BBC show instead. - It's a comedy.

My Hero.

The guy who plays the doctor in this is also in Mock of the Week.
That's the guy from Father Ted, which was made by Hat Trick Productions and shown on Channel 4 in the UK.

I like that the BBC is publicly funded, I don't like how it's publicly funded but, that's the Britain I live in and let's face it, I'm not smart enough or economically stable enough to immigrate, so that's the Britain I'm stuck with, YIP-****ING-E it's in Croydon though, that sh*t's alright.

I listen to BBC World Service on the radio almost every day.

^^The latter two was simply them covering events organised and performed by other people/companies. Although they deserve a lot of credit for their coverage of the Olympics - for starters not having adverts every ten minutes was great.
