The BBC, definitely worth a watch!
We seem to love nothing more than complaining about the BBC. In truth, the British Broadcasting Corporation produces some of the highest quality television programmes in the world. The BBC is an integral part of the British culture and we honestly couldn’t be without it.
Here are 3 reasons to love the BBC.
The BBC has a reputation for producing excellent quality, award-winning drama shows. The following are just a tiny example of what it does best:
- Costume dramas – Pride and Prejudice, Middlemarch, North and South and most recently, Poldark.
- Political dramas – State of Play, Spooks and The State Within.
- Quirky/sci-fi dramas – Sherlock, Life on Mars and Dr Who.
Where do you begin? From classics such as Monty Python, Steptoe and Son, Blackadder and Red Dwarf to recent hits such as Gavin and Stacey and Outnumbered, the range of brilliant comedy is endless; it’s impossible to choose the best. And it’s not just the shows; the BBC has given us unforgettable and iconic comedy gold characters such as:
- Edina and Patsy from Absolutely Fabulous
- Delboy and Rodney from Only Fools and Horses
- Jim and Barbara from The Royale Family
- Ness and Smithy from Gavin and Stacey
The BBC has also given us the gift of enjoying the talents of two of the most loved comic ladies in TV history: Victoria Wood and Caroline Aherne. Sadly, they are no longer with us but we can still enjoy their remarkable productions on both Freeview and Satellite comedy channels.
David Attenborough’s natural history documentaries are sure brilliance, while the BBC production, Nazis: A Warning From History is considered the greatest documentary every made.
