I doubt that the children's output would be scrapped with Four Extra - maybe moved about a bit. Radio 4 and BBC7 have an awful lot on comman - especially in the fields of drama and comedy. OP - you...

You really think ITV News are going to give it that much coverage?

About as well considered as your initial rant, I'd say. Live and local radio continues in many parts of the country. Most of the Bauer Big City stations, for example - still retain live and local...

What exactly is wrong with Sunday morning? Almost every BBC local station does something similar. It's not as if it's dominating the schedule either, given that peak listening on Sundays is generally...

OK, so he wasn't instrumental in bringing commercial radio to the UK and in particular Scotland? Radio Clyde would have been a better place without him?

Ginge, the Proms are part of the BBC's public service remit but yes, of course there may have been a nod to ratings. Interestingly, I watched one of the finest Proms I've seen on TV - only to be...

Why not? They did something similar earlier in the year with Bach. Why should Radio 3 be an elitist station?

A fair point. OK, I'll take S4C out of the equation (although as Ginger will know, the Channel is soon to be part funded by the BBC). I still stand by my wider point on ratings.

Yes well that was six months ago, and technically the station hasn't actually relaunched yet. I think Simon Bates could make or break the station, but we won't really have a clear idea for a couple...

Please expalin what it is you want me to explain about the Charter and I will attempt to explain it.

Smooth does what is says on the tin. It's a music station for the older (than Capital/Heart) listeners. They have a couple of decent names on the roster but of course nothing near the budget that...

As has been pointed out, it was "said" by the BBC hating Daily Mail and repeated by certain erstwhile posters on here who were praying for it to be true. It wasn't and it isn't.

What relevance does the Charter have to this thread?

If you're asking "does the BBC Charter allow Thought for the Day to be broadcast", no it doesn't. That would be the Service Licence.
