The BBC…….again!

The BBC start a 4 part series on the Reformation tonight. Its called “The Protestant Revolution”. I will be attempting to get a copy at UK Nova or the Box. If anyone wants a copy I should be able to burn it for you.

The series explores how the Protestant Reformation effects everything we do today. Its on BBC 4 so it shouldn’t be too populist! I know I knock old Auntie Beeb but they do some good stuff.

Public funding of television does have its advantages. A quick search of the itunes store shows the quality of podcasts available from the BBC. No other broadcasting institution in the world produces the quality of the BBC – so I guess public funding licence fees are a good thing.

I just hope Katie and Derek have paid their licence fee in Scotland – no getting TV for free Mr and Mrs Brown!! you will get caught!

    Don’t worry Mr. Cairns…we are calling to pay tonight so that I can watch MOTD live on Saturday night. Hopefully the results of the North London Derby will be in the Spurs’ favour, or else MOTD might be a bit hard to watch.

    I would love a copy of that series if it’s not too much trouble.
