A couple of weeks ago, when I was in Cardiff, I went to the cinema twice and was rather appoalled that the only adverts shown before the movies all seemed to be on behalf of the BBC. Rob Fenwick has had the same experience today. I can remember one of the ads was for Radio 1 and another one was for the iPlayer. I can't remember what the others were.
Question: How much of our money is the BBC using to
Question: What is its aim?
Question: How is its success to be judged?
Question: Wouldn't this money be better spent on public service programming?
I know a lot of senior people at the BBC read this blog. I'd be delighted if they felt like answering those four questions.
