Memorandum by N Vokes
The BBC is the most widely available
and highly respected medium through which sporting events of national
interest should be the highest priority.
BROADCASTING IN THE NATIONS
AND REGIONS The
present weight of broadcasting seems to have reached a sensible
levelany further dissipation is bound to reduce quality.
THE BBC WORLD
SERVICE The BBC
offers the world an unequalled, and unbiased (I hope) view of
the worlds events and must be a source of encouragement and strength
to oppressed people all around the worldI would only hope
that this can be extended to cover all such people.
It is also a great ambassador for
our country building incalculable good will from free thinking
RELIGIOUS BROADCASTING There
is far too much religious broadcasting, taking up a disproportionate
amount of airtime. The BBC should not support or promote any religion,
and religious broadcasting should definitely not be paid for by
the license payer (the vast majority of which are atheist) It
should be left to religions to develop their own channels of communication.
THE BBC AS
is good that the BBC has taken the lead in digital broadcasting.
CONNECTING TO THE LICENCE
FEE PAYER Why
does the BBC need to involve the public in its decision making
processes?as long as it carries out research to determine
views and trends there is no need. We don't want vast committees
developing TV programs which would be massive compromises appealing
