Privatising the BBC could be a viable option

Mark Littlewood appears on BBC Radio 5 Live

Mark Littlewood appeared on BBC Radio 5 Live to discuss the cost of large pay-offs at the BBC.

Mr. Littlewood argued that the BBC are not showing the same amount of care with the public’s money as a private company would, and that privatisation, or the option to pay (or not pay) for the BBC should be given to the public. For commercial channels like Sky, the penalty for not paying a subscription is switching off those channels, this should be possible for the BBC TV and radio, even more so in the new digital age.
