Media / Talk of the Trade: Duds and delights
Wednesday 06 October 1993
It would be useful if the BBC could get its act together when devising mass market programmes: Saturday's Happy Families, featuring caged grannies, is another light entertainment dud. But as a member of the privileged ABC1 grouping being super-served, I can only say: keep it up.
The licence fee is certainly worth paying for such programmes as 'Wild Swans', in which Omnibus brought together the author Jung Chang and her mother; Love Lies Bleeding; and Timewatch's 'Battle for Kursk', about the Ukraine encounter between Hitler's troops and the Russians in 1943, a little-known turning point of the Second World War. Where else would you find such programmes but on the BBC?
