    Mostly full of repeats or programmes from other broadcasters bought cheap to fill the schedules, The other free to air channels may be as bad but at least we have a choice and are not forced in to paying whether we watch or in most cases not

    From both but once shows are a success produced by the BBC the shows will want it to be made by them direct and sold to the BBC at vast prices.

    Think a majority of the output on BBC is bought in and not produced inhouse due to rules introduced by various governments over the years

    Just been watching episode 1 of Showtrial on iPlayer. Typically excellent BBC drama, from the makers of Vigil, Line of Duty and Bodyguard - all excellent BBC programmes.

    Think the point is with the BBC it is so vast and broad that there is bound to be things people don’t like. but that’s no different to Netflix and the like people are happy to pay the subscription for. The BBC is well worth it in my opinion.

    The debate though is not really about the content but that its a mandatory subscription. That's wrong however you try and spin it.

    If the people who support the BBC think they're that good and " millions " support it they should have no problem in going to pay per view and not Tax the country . They have a nearly zero audience amongst the younger generation .
