Regardless, itís an ignominious end to a programme thatís gone 50 years plus fronted by the same person. Would it have killed the BBC to make a bit of a fuss just this once?
But perfectly rational behaviour if they wished to erase the programme from the popular memory. The less fuss and publicity about it, the better it serves their purpose. (Although with the Beeb, cockup is far more likely than conspiracy)
You'd normally expect a broadcaster that had a programme with S@N's history and legacy to be celebrating the fact and to build on its success. But the BBC attitude seems to be a combination of "who? - oh ... astrology
! meh!" and "the quicker we can put this past us, the sooner we can fill the slot with another game show".
