And this morning, Talkback on BBC1 had an item on unnecessary hand-waving. I couldn't agree more.
Yes, Peter, there are some excellent programmes still going out, but usually they are hidden on BBC4 (viewing population 3 men and a dog). You can't be surprised if people talk of dumbing down, when that's what has happened with BBC1/2 now they have relinquished their best documentaries to the digital channels.
Certainly programmes some years ago had to be treated with suspicion. Any that dealt with subjects I knew about were full of errors, which made me think that others, however convincing, were probably just as bad.
