Leaving the political criticism to one side - the Beeb has received its fair share of critics for not providing value for money. I disagree with this. The BBC, including the flagship BBC1, is envied the world over for its quality and independence. There is also something very professional about most of the presenters and the way they approach programmes compared to the other channels. ITV's tabloidy news channels, and its drama and comedy, are nowhere near the quality of the Beeb, for example. Also, in particular, think about the comedy stars and new talent that the Beeb produces. None of the other channels can compete really! Long live the Beeb.
