Twenty years ago it used to put out the best of the best, world beating journalism, great documentaries from the likes of Attenborough and basically the best of middle England. Now all we have are glottal stops, mockney drawls and newsreaders dressed like sluts. Even Newsnight is little more than soft porn with the likes of Emily Maitlis - have they no respect at all for their viewers? Fair play for making the beeb less stuffy, less old boy dominated but why must virtually every other presenter these days be Sri Lankan?

This may be the case if you watch TV, but as a Radio 3 and Radio 4 listener, I can assure you of the sustained high quality of programming.

The TVs gone **** because people these days don't give a dam what's on as long as it's something they can veg to.
