When you go abroad to countries with only commercial TV stations you see the difference the BBC makes to our television quality across all our channels.

When you look at the price of Sky TV and pay-per-view television it gives you a hint of what would happen without a (comparatively cheap) TV licence system.

The cheapest Sky TV package is £264 a year.

Saying that, I haven't bought a TV licence for ten years or so.

Maybe so, but It has also been said by people who live in other countries that the BBC do not report the truth. I assume that is the world service.

You find any media organisation that is universally claimed to tell the truth, at least the BBC costs less to be lied to?

Theres a brilliant docufilm ( only on the net , rare ) called "911 incontravertable " by tony rooke.
Mr rooke didnt pay his licence saying " cause they fund terrorism , such as telling us WT7 had fallen on 911 live before it did .
Bbc took him to court. Hes wasnt fined & never has paid since.
Says alot. Like the old guy who went against the official narrative about 7/ 7 . Went to court. He produced evidence to show the changed bus routes on the day and trains etc weirdly no cctv worked despite london being choc full of cctv.
There was a " terror threat exercise " on that day too. Strange that. smile
Anyway no charges where full filled.

That is misleading representation of the outcome of Tony Rooke's case, he lost his case so had to pay £200 costs and got a 6 month conditional discharge. This is a lenient sentence but it was still a sentence.

£200 is nothing. Less than a years licence fee. The REAL issue is he didnt pay on purpose & continues. Youd get more if you drank in the street.
Im quite sure the bully bbc wanted to whack him in court like the 7/7 old guy.
This forum really annoyingly concentrates on the miniscule & not the overall wider picture.
Very much like society who dont like or know historical facts & are distracted . Or dont want to know them.
Someone went on about not sayin nazi just german in another thread but in 1917 after the 1st WW i doubt people in britain liked germans / nazis whatever & saw them as one. Its not important.
The point was the queens lineage IS german.

Elizabeth's mother just happened to be of Scottish decent . Elizabeth's parents and all four grandparents were born in England and
people like to say the Royal Family is German. When Queen Anne died, the throne passed to the House of Hanover, which is German. But the Hanovers were not just any German family. The Hanovers were descendants of the Stuarts, a dynasty from Scotland. And the Stuarts came to the throne because they in turn were descendants of the Tudors, who were from Wales.

OK ?

Really svenlock68, you accuse the BBC, yet you have given misleading or wrong information in many of you posts, it was me who corrected your statement about the Royal Family, you just can't turn a German into a Nazi or change a time in History to suit your purpose because that distorts History and the truth, so yes it is important that we get our facts right, many of those that contribute on here go to great lengths to make sure their information is correct as this benefits us all,its not the X files.

I don't know why you have so much hatred in you . You will never be any higher than where you are now, neither will I, but I do have a heritage and it's called appreciation and respect. Maybe you don't, you jealous little trump.

With regard to the BBC, why are they showing unproven footage such as this. A disgrace and brings back memories of Colin Powell showing us the movement of vehicles supposedly carrying WMD's Remember ?

This appears to be so fake.
