BABE OF THE DAY - LYNDA CARTER...



Do you really need words to go with this pic, fellow Crivs?  Surely they'd be even more superfluous than my usual dreary drivel?  The only two words that need be said (and then perhaps only for anyone under 30) are LYNDA CARTER!

At the weekend I was watching "In Search Of Dracula" on BBC 2, presented by Mark Gattis. The programme included interviews with various Hammer hotties like Caroline Munro, Joanna Lumley and Jenny Hanley (who was unrecognizable from her Magpie days).

Yeah, I watched it too, CJ, right after the 3rd episode of Dracula. I'm not convinced that it was entirely necessary to send him (and an entire TV crew) to all those countries just to talk-to-camera for a few brief seconds at each location though. Surely a stock photo (or clip) with a voiceover would've sufficed? The BBC are a bit too frivolous with the money from the license fee, don't you think?

Yes, but the BBC always does that. There were complaints recently about how the 'Today' programme sent presenter Martha Kearney to the Arctic just to talk about climate change. I've always been a defender of the licence fee - it's still excellent value and it spares us from commercials on BBC TV and radio - but how much longer can it realistically continue? 2022 will be the 100th anniversary of the BBC so maybe that would be a good time for Auntie Beeb to become a subscription service just like Sky or Netflix. It would mean nobody would be forced to buy a licence fee or be threatened with prison if they didn't pay but it would also mean pensioners would have to pay like everybody else - Sky isn't free for pensioners and the BBC shouldn't be either!

You've really got a thing about pensioners getting anything for 'free', haven't you, CJ? I get the impression that you don't work, so presumably you're on some kind of benefits. (You don't have to say if you are, I'm not prying.) If so, maybe pensioners object to the unemployed (for whatever reason) getting money for 'nothing'. Most people who get to 75 don't have much longer in front of them, so don't grudge them a bit of free TV - especially as most of it is crap anyway.

As a matter of fact I do work and I wish I'd never mentioned bloody pensioners. What about the BBC switching to a subscription service? Is it a good idea?

Kid said...

"Language, Timothy." Well, you do seem to harp on about them from time to time, CJ. Subscription service? Trouble with that (perhaps) is that fewer people would subscribe. I think they should consider having ads BETWEEN each programme, but hopefully not WITHIN individual programmes themselves. Thing is, if you gave the public a choice between ads and the licence/license (as my spell-correct keeps telling me) fee, I think they'd be prepared to endure the ads. All terrestrial TV for free? Bring it on.

H'mm, or was it after the 1st episode of Dracula that I watched the documentary? Can't remember now - when was it first shown? Anyone?
