Should more evidence be needed that our screens are dominated to an absurd extent by transatlantic culture and values, I further calculated that programmes from or about the whole of the rest of the world amounted to 3 per cent, 2 per cent, 0 per cent and 13 per cent (apart from the news, that is), Channel 4 managing to escape from shameful parochiality with its theme of a Black Christmas and some late-night Chinese films.
British television the best in the world? Probably, with the exception of the US, the narrowest.
