Meades on the Beeb

This piece by Jonathan Meades on the BBC - the corporation that allows him to create the occasional programme, so long as it's only shown on digital BBC4 - is, I think, worth passing on. Needless to say, I agree strongly with its thrust. And I was interested to learn that Anthony Burgess was among those who saw Jimmy Savile for what he was - and expressed his conclusion in no uncertain terms.

    Thanks for passing that on Nige! Though isn't being shown on BBC4 an indication of quality (albeit lower budget) in a documentary nowadays?

  2. Well yes it is indeed - but time was when Meades was shown on terrestrial BBC2. Far too strong meat now...
