The BBC have been told to concentrate on 'public service programming' and that the web site should be cut back as it is not public service broadcasting!

wiz-king, I didn't get that impression from the reports in my local paper. The TV licence fee breakdown they gave was that only 30p out of the £121 fee was spent on online and interactive services which include the BBC website. (not a bank breaking amount).

It also says that 40 percent of licence fee payers use the website and 70 percent of year 11 pupils use it for its GCSE Bitesize learning material.

So, I agree with NIGEY.

Presumably the other £120.70p goes on repeats. :>) lol

Sorry Guys, got that slightly wrong. The 30p figure is per month = £3.60 of every £121.

The complete breakdown is:
BBC1 and BBC2 = £60
Digital TV = £12
10 national radio stations = £14.40
Regional TV and local radio stations = £18
Online and Interactive services = £3.60
Broadcasting costs and collecting the licence fee = £12

Fellsider, yes notice lots of repeats, especially on the digital channels. It is cheap programming for them. That's the problem. The more channels you have the worse the content.
