A Song for the BBC
Further to a piece of E-mail Louis, Ken and James received in Doctor Who: Podshock 224, where the Author bemoaned having to pay the BBC licence fee. And we all know how James is a great champion for the BBC, well here's another.
Mitch Benn is well known in his own right as a Comical Singer Songwriter, and is part of the BBC Radio 4 "The Now Show!" with Steve Punt and High Dennis. Put everything (He could think of, including Blakes 7 and Tripods so that should keep ken happy, and yes Doctor Who does get a mention!) down in to one song. He himself would probably say it's not everything that the BBC has done or does but, for us Doctor Who fans the Show gets the most mentions in the song. Mitch Benn being another vocal fan.
The Song is called "I'm proud of the BBC" and thanks to Chip from the Two Minute Timelord Podcast for directing me to this via his Facebook stream. So before the Video, there is an old saying "Too many Cooks spoil the broth" In this case as was mentioned by a BBC news correspondant of some 44 years, and I have said myself and I shall formulate it so. " Too many Managers spoil the BBC" But enough of this for now the song is what you want to hear so Take it away MR Mitch Benn,
