I can’t really win no matter how I phrase this post, but I’ll start with the fact that I am a happy Licence Fee payer and that, if that fee doubled, I’d still consider it good value for money.
The BBC being such a large organisation, it’s inevitable that I won’t like or agree with everything it chooses to undertake. One such example is BBC Dimensions.
From its about page:
Dimensions is an experimental prototype for the BBC. We want to bring home the human scale of events and places in history… Dimensions is part of the BBC’s continual experimentation in trying to find new ways to communicate history.
Which is all very sensible. Still, I don’t know why it’s the BBC who built it.
(And that URL! How Big Really – as if something is only really as big as people say it is if you have something you understand it in terms of. I understand the point, but it still grates a bit. Maybe I’m just getting old.)</p.
