Proud of the BBC

October 15th, 2010

I love TV, it’s one of my most popular pastimes, though I generally watch specific shows rather than just general TV. Whilst the majority of what I watch is American TV Shows, the BBC have created or broadcasted almost all of the UK TV Shows that I watch (the only exceptions being a couple of comedies on Channel 4). Some of the best off the top of my head are; Spooks, Dr Who, Sherlock, A bit of Fry & Laurie, State of Play, Blackadder and Alan Partridge.

In addition to brilliant TV shows they haveĀ  one of the few news channels that I can stand watching, an absolutely brilliant news website that is on my daily website rotation and some brilliant radio stations. It’s only recently that I’ve started listening to Radio 4 and I think it’s brilliant, it has some brilliant comedy; (Unbelievable Truth, The News Quiz, Just a Minute, That Mitchell & Webb Sound and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue), the Today Programme which I wake up to every day and finally is responsible for the awesome Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (though the sooner they get rid of The Archers the better we’ll all be :-p ).

Mitch Benn has just put up on his website the video for his brilliant song, Proud of the BBC. It’s a brilliant fun track and I believe absolutely every British person can watch and find at list 10 items in there that they love. He’s releasing it as a single on the 1st of November and it would be brilliant if it managed to get into the top 10.

The BBC is an integral part of my life and if it disappeared or shrunk I would be very upset, I believe the TV License is worth what it costs me 10 times over. Personally? I am very Proud of the BBC.

Update 01/11/2010: The single is now available and here’s a comparison of the places you can buy it.
