    63% of BBC shows are repeats !

    A recent freedom of information request found out that 63% of all BBC programmes were repeats.

    That's 2793 shows, and it is up from 32.5% since 2011.

    I have to ask: Where the hell is my licence fee going if that is the case ?

    Anybody ?

    Well, Soon the licence fee is going to be stretched to include the World Service, which I consider another rip off.

    Hi there HG; lovely to see you back at ROB again.

    Yes, the TV licence fee is not only not getting any smaller but we are getting less for it every year.

    Maybe it is time that the BBC were privatised as they would then have to compete in the real world instead of getting the gift that is the licence-fee handed to them to waste.

    I already suspected something of the same, but it is good to see in black and white.

    Actually I watch very few of the BBC shows after the news and it is a good thing that we now have so many satellite channels as this gives us a far greater choice of viewing than being stuck with what the BBC put on.

    Yes, and the now-standard Freeview box gives many more channels than the BBC alone can offer too.

    It is just a shame that we cannot legally receive any TV channels without a TV licence.
