I read with interest the letter from Mr Johnson, Mature Times January 2015, in which he says he tends to only watch BBC as they do not have annoying adverts. I totally agree with Mr Johnson and in my view the BBC show the best programmes anyway. For my own part, I like a good old fashioned “Who dunnit” and what better example of this is BBCs “Death in Paradise.”
But there are not enough programmes for us. I know making television dramas costs money and, like everyone else, the BBC are always strapped for cash, but I am sure, like me, many of us over fifties would welcome all the old classics of the fifties and sixties, Dixon of Cock Green, Francis Durbridge’s The Scarf, Z Cars, Softly, Softly, Task Force to name but a few. It would bring back happy memories for us older ones we could have at least one good programme to watch every night.
Hang on, here’s a thought: how about starting a new TV channel – the Mature Channel? By the way I love the paper.
