Save BBC 4 Petition

Post by inamac » Wed Sep 07, 2011 6:06 am

The Curse of Steptoe was just one of the original single dramas commissioned for the BBC's 'arts' channel, BBC4. It pulled in one of the channels biggest audiences.

And now the BBC is talking about 'slimming down' the channel to remove its role in showing (expensive) drama.

I've just signed the petition to 'save BBC4' and would urge any of our British members to do likewise. (Especially if we want to make sure that Jason and his fellow actors still have the opportunity to have quality scripts seen in future.)
