The BBC has provided the world – yes, the world – with outstanding radio drama for 75 years. Yet as of the 1st of April 2011, the BBC’s World Service Radio Drama department is being completely axed – and shockingly, the BBC World Service will no longer broadcast any regular drama.
This essential betrayal of the BBC’s primary mandate – to provide preeminent public service broadcasting – is as short-sighted as it is wrong-headed, and it’s the topic of tonight’s OPEN HOUSE.
We hear from many people who are affected, and urge everyone to add their voice to the campaigns listed below.
Remember to catch next Sunday’s OPEN HOUSE – it’s your show, open for you to call in and chat to Peter – full details here.
Do join us live in the Litopia After Dark chatroom next week – here!
