Letter: Boastful - and boring BBC

Sir: In Paris, one has cable television and spends some time watching BBC World Service. I have been greatly offended by the amount of boasting it does: minutes and minutes explaining how good it is at news, drama, sport and everything else.

This seems to me neither British nor gentlemanly. It is also boring, with the same clips turning up again and again. And it is counter-productive. One has a zapper, and at the first boast one now zaps off somewhere else, probably to American soaps dubbed into French.

Yours sincerely,
