My daughter doesn’t like watching THE BBC

Reference news network reported on February 20th (word/Tony parsons) for the British broadcasting corporation (BBC), it is an age old and new alternate moments, whether the culture secretary, Nadine rees, the sports show host, Gary Ryan g, or anyone else, it is impossible through their language, action, or twitter influence, to stop this moment.Because young people don’t watch the BBC.My daughter is a 19-year-old university student who cares about current affairs, the arts and the future of the planet, but she never watches BBC programmes.Her entertainment, information and opinions come from other sources.She could never remember to switch to the BBC.There are thousands of people like her.They will be the bane of the BBC.For the BBC, the defining moment came when young people born in the 21st century were asked to click on their online bank accounts and pay a small fee for a service they would never use.The BBC’s licence fee, which it is legally obliged to pay whenever a home has a TELEVISION, would be an anachronism.For the BBC, the time will soon come when old and new will change — soon!The reason is that young people are being asked to pay for TV shows they don’t want to watch, don’t want and, most importantly, never have a relationship with.”The BBC is respected, admired and envied around the world,” Gary Lineker said after culture Secretary Nadine Dorries announced it would ban the CORPORATION from raising its TV licence fee for the next two years and scrap it from 2027.”It should be the most valuable national treasure,” Gary said.He would no doubt have felt that way had the BBC not paid him 1.36 million a year to present football.I totally agree with him.But the BBC bears a striking resemblance to the British monarchy, which will also see a turning point when King Charles III succeeds Queen Elizabeth II on the throne.If the Queen dies, the British monarchy will be changed forever.Because we will lose the monarch who embodies the national story.The turning point of this era is inevitable.The same is true of the BBC.I grew up watching the BBC.I watch it, I work for it, I love it.But in the past five years it has become, like other great British institutions, like the Anglican Church and the Labour Party, alienated from those who care most about it and love it.BBC legend David Dimbleby, 83, argues that on issues such as immigration, “the BBC has lost track of public opinion”.The BBC was, and should be, the broadcasting corporation of the United Kingdom.Like the monarchy and the Anglican Church, it should never engage in dirty political debate.But it is now as partisan as all newspapers, from BBC TV 2’s Newsnight to Radio 4’s Today.It no longer represents the whole country.The BBC has the capacity to make a comeback.Nor does it matter whether Nadine Dorries’s promise to scrap the BBC licence fee is a real one, or just another hype Tory promise that will be quietly forgotten later.The only thing that matters is that the world is changing.The BBC’s funding, too, will have to change.Andrew Marr, who recently featured on Breakfast every Sunday, said the BBC “may have to move to a subscription model”.The brutal truth is that this day has come before the matter has been openly debated.Young people don’t care about the BBC, so it has to come up with some other way of making money.For people like me, who grew up watching Kenneth Wolstenholm, pop hits and Infantile, it is sad that the DECLINE of the BBC is inevitable.But my daughter, and millions like her, born in the 21st century, won’t even notice.(Translated by Wang Dongdong from “I love the BBC, but my daughter and other young people don’t like it anymore… That’s the problem with it”, the Sun website, 23 January.)
