A harbinger, I fear

"This week on the BBC" trailers on BBC Four. "Part of the thousands of hours of Arts and Culture programming the BBC produces every year." (I suspect there are variants for other fields, on the relevant channels.)

The last time the BBC ran promos like that was in the early 1990s. There can be no better indication of the political times coming.


  1. Good times? The good times are coming? Please tell me the good times are coming!!!

  2. Of course the BBC has many faults. But total neoliberalism of broadcasting would be far worse than the current situation.
