I’ve often been critical of the BBC. I don’t care for their flagrant biases, their ongoing existence paid for by a government subsidy paid for by a tax on simply owning a television (whether or not one actually watches the BBC, and enforced by vans equipped with “TV detectors”), and various and sundry reasons.
But no longer do I think that they are a complete and utter waste.
They have published a piece that shows that, on occasion, they can be brilliant, insightful, and truly recognize quality and rightness when it is presented to them.
Maybe that TV tax isn’t so bad after all, if it’s helping pieces such as this see the light.
(Thanks to Kevin, our fearless leader, for pointing this piece out to me…)
