The BBC shambles that was its river pageant coverage seems to be meeting a rising tide of criticism e.g. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukne...-coverage.html
"Low grade, celebrity driven drivel. How did Beeb get it so wrong?" said one MP.
The phrase sounds familiar.
Might this herald a reconsideration of the tendency towards patronising, infantilised 'drivel' that has spoiled so much of the BBC's output, including Radio 3?
