  1. Not wishing to correct you on salaries but:
    Mark Thompson, BBC DG, earns a basic salary of £834,000, substantially more than you’ve claimed. And this doesn’t count ‘expenses’.

    Andy Duncan, the outgoing Chief Executive of C4, earned £731,000 in his last year.

    I would argue that the BBC is not totally broken, but it is partially broken. It has lost sight of its core objectives. The BBC makes no financial business case for any of its services, so BBC Radio Northern Ireland costs as much to run each year as two average BBC local radio stations, but reaches an audience of less than 20% of a typical local radio station. Bearing in mind that this is public money, should local radio in Northern Ireland be subsidised by every licence fee payer in the rest of the UK? It’s not as if the people in Northern Ireland have no other radio choice – they have *lots of choices*, including and not limited to BBC National Radio.

    Lots of irony that you defend the BBC and then rant of the week about a BBC show.

    The BBC as an organisation is profligate and wasteful. I delivered a project that saves the BBC £2.8 million/year. They didn’t deliver that saving back to the taxpayer, they chose to spend it on another development that also lacked an absence of financial argument or Business Case.
