Applicants must be militant lefties(small print )




Typically ignorant drivel served based on prejudice. My sister works for the BBC, but no longer tells people that as every fool has some counterfactual opinion based on nothing but tabloid bile. She is largely apolitical but voted for the local Tory MP at the last election whom she met once; while her husband on the other hand is a right-wing libertarian. Actually, there are many Corbynistas who think there is a conspiracy within the BBC to destroy the Labour leadership.
Edited by: "Feeble" 19th Oct

Just a heads up the tickets are usually overissued, which means that many arriving don't get to get in. Rather disappointing after paying to park or public transport and queuing outside in the cold for around an hour.

I signed up for the prime 3 month audible trial and have used one of my credits to pre-order the whole audiobook. It should be released on the 19th.

I like listening to a book using the BBC audio player but prefer to have access permanently so I don't need to listen to it before it expires.

How is this a deal? Maybe I'll start posting Eastenders schedules.


Because buying the book if you wanted it would cost quite a bit and you can enjoy this without being any extra out of pocket. Although you could borrow for free from the library?

32263706-RPY64.jpg



Personally I don’t consider Eastenders in quite the same league as Phillip Pullman to post the schedule but if that’s your thing then go for it.

Please don’t forget things like this- access to new and engaging books - is still a treat for some people, as a partially sighted person I read extensively as do a lot of other people who are disabled, older or you know just enjoy listening to a book rather than reading a physical one due to capability or access. A new book read aloud, on demand all included in your tv license may mean zero to you but it means a lot to someone else.

How is this a deal? Maybe I'll start posting Eastenders schedules.

Some Woman named her son, Vagina.

The writer?
He's written some brilliant scifi and there are a lot of movies based on his stories.

there are some absolute gems on here, ive listened to just about all of them

one common theme though, is that a lot of people have terrible taste in music. you only hear 10 seconds of the music so its ok.
definitely a winning radio show formula though, heat!

Rick Wakeman and Paul Abbott (the bloke behind Shameless) are worth a listen.

Some classics are still there but some have been deleted

It was not designed to be "nanny"...I have to pay the BBC to watch re-runs of Bullseye made for ITV from 1982!



Though I've never watched it, you offer up Sky news as a (solitary) example of free Sky TV viewing...? Precisely how politically unbiased do you think that little number is from Murdoch?

Amongst other goals the BBC was designed to educate and stimulate the British Public and beyond. So, in some sense, it was both nanny and teacher.

You do not have to pay the BBC to watch re-runs of Bullseye (whatever that may be). The BBC offers a wealth of material for public consumption; you are not restricted to TV productions, new or old. The choices you make about what you watch, listen to or read are your choices. However, if you peruse the BBC web-sites you will find a massive archive of information covering myriad aspects of life.

A 40p per day tax, I you so consider it, is, in my opinion an absolute bargain. I would far rather pay for the upkeep of the BBC than fund munitions production or HS2 railway projects. We are all paying considerably more than 40p per day in recompense for the criminal activities of a mere handful of bankers, failed IT schemes and environmental cleansing.

You are free to gripe about the BBC if you must. But consider the pleasure it brings to millions of people young or old, day in, day out.

A few new freebies down, there is a thread about Leeds V Sheffield Wednesday on Sky Mix, no one seems to be moaning that isn't technically freebie, as you'll need some sort of Sky subscription to access the channel.. Bit of consistency folks...

wish bbc would give up on football, or at least put it on another channel if they insist on buying a few games. It messes up the regular scheduling of other programs that people tune into every week/day like clockwork.

Original Poster

Thanks for all the comments guys, this has opened a can of worms!

What I was trying to get at was Pay per View was not required with BT/Sky or whoever to view these games. If you are not paying for a sports subscription, there are not a lot of games on terrestrial TV and maybe this would be welcomed by some.

Having posted some BT Showcase free games recently, I have not had comments like "it's not free, you have to pay for electricity and a TV to watch it on" for example. Similarly, it's a bit like a magazine that you may always buy and this month there is a "freebie" on the cover. What is free is open to interpretation I guess.

Well, I hope at least some people can use the info, and as always, criticism is not unwelcome, everyone has their own opinion on whether a post is useful or not. Hats off to bumbaclart for opening the debate.
