Letter: Sky's coverage of Premier League Football and other minority interests

Sir: I quite agree with Margaret Maxwell. Rupert Murdoch did us all a favour by removing Premier League Football from our screens when less than 50 per cent of the population appreciate it. He could go further, however. I have no interest in clothes, along with at least 50 per cent of the population; therefore, why not put The Clothes Show on Sky and release more prime-time television?

News and documentaries are equally unpopular, as are politics, children's television, quiz shows, obscure drama and comedy. All could be removed, freeing air time for the only programmes that could claim anything like 50 per cent popularity - soap operas and The Bill.

Yours sincerely,
