The BBC mostly use our licence money to pay their executives vastly inflated salaries, to pay celebrities & presenters absurd amounts and to pay for the right to cover dull sports, such as snooker. Further, current entertainment programming is largely dumbed down and inane, whilst the coverage of science, arts, history is minimal. At one time the open university used to show programs on BBC 2, but now we have 4 BBC channels this is no longer the case.
I'd to see a BBC that provides high quality documentaries, drama and educational programs (why don't they have permanent science, art, history channels), but I don't see the point in having to pay a licence fee for dumbed down entertainment - you can get that on the other channels. I would suggest that the BBC should be reformed or else abolished.
