Sir: The main business of the BBC is entertainment. Its main failing is its growing inability to distinguish the funny from the fatuous. Equally important, if less prominent, are news and current affairs. These seem to me rather less well informed and much less well edited than they used to be. The gaudy sets that precede the Nine O'Clock News are perplexingly awful: a mess. Indicative?

Yours faithfully,
