Just a news channel now. Feel quite sad.
Used to be excellent. Now just a BBC news channel wannabe. Editorial gone quite left now and I can’t find any nuance. Some reporters excellent. Some need to grow up.
Avoid the news and culture/art/book programs still great. Magazine still a great publication. Hopefully that will stay non political, although have cancelled my subscription
