We’re far too clever

Official: BBC is too upmarket | UK News | The Observer: “The BBC director-general, Mark Thompson, has ordered a far-reaching review called Household Value, which will identify who uses the BBC’s services most often. Although in its early stages, it has already discovered that lower-income families are less well served than their wealthier counterparts. ‘There is a feeling we may be serving the professional classes well, but not reaching the C2s and D1s,’ said one BBC insider.”

D1s? Dumb ones maybe?

Any Radio 4 listener should be very worried.
Mark Thompson wants to dumb down the BBC because the distasteful side of the BBC production makes more money than its quality counterpart.

Still, we can draw some consolation by yet another evidence that Huxley was right.
