Stirring news in the battle for our BBC from the new Radio Times:
The BBC has a new champion in the form of a glamorous full-throated female lead singer of a majorly successful Welsh rock band from the 1990s.I'm presuming this is Ann from Ectogram we're talking about here? Oh, hang on, no:
Cerys Matthews, solo artist and former lead singer of the band Catatonia today told RadioTimes.com that the British public needs to stand up for the BBC – or risk losing it.Obviously, being employed by 6Music means she's not totally unbiased, but Cerys Matthews is right.
“We all need to defend the BBC,” she said at today’s launch of a raft of new arts programmes.
“We should all see it as our BBC. We need to remind everybody that we all own it.”
