Stephen Fry says BBC dumbs down TV

Bookmark and Share

That old favourite of the BBC, Stephen Fry, has been speaking about the Corporation and how it is producing programmes that are more suitable for children than adults.

Many a time has the presenter and actor turned on the television and thought what a good children’s show only to find that it is past nine o’clock in evening!

According to the actor, the BBC does produce some wonderful programming such as Dr Who and Merlin, but these are strictly for children and not for adults.

He seems to have a point, but if the BBC produces something too challenging it would be slammed by others.

The point is that the BBC produces some quality programming that wins awards and that has good viewing figures, but there are lots of gaps that need to be filled too!
