Letter: BBC's digital fee

Sir: Of course, the extra revenue will go on those high-quality, challenging and entertaining BBC shows and not on incompetent management, excessive bureaucracy and old-fashioned work practices.

I refer to the challenging soap Neighbours, the gritty investigative reporting of Watchdog Healthcheck, the high-quality Zoo, the witty Eastenders and the positively controversial Animal Hospital Revisited.

If the BBC can promise no more cookery, soaps, docusoaps, celeb game shows, real cop shows, and sensationalist journalism, then I'll pay the digital license. If not, the BBC should follow the Sky model of a subscription service and let the public decide.
