BBC listener complains after Bacon refuses refund


A listener complained when he failed to get a licence fee refund after Richard Bacon said he would reimburse anyone who did not like an interview.

The man emailed the presenter’s show to say he had not enjoyed the segment with Sir David Attenborough. The BBC said Bacon “was indeed joking when he made this statement”.
