The future of the BBC and a walk in the sunshine on the Thames

Stephen has found a site where he can book into being part of the audience for BBC shows. Yesterday evening we went to a debate on the future of the BBC (basically the same issues as our ABC) which was being recorded for Radio 4. We really enjoyed the whole experience of arriving at the studio early, having afternoon tea, then a dinner snack, registering, and then the 1.5 hours of the debate. It was hosted by a presenter who was really on top of the issues and able to stay on track to ask the right questions of the panel. We recognised an Australian accent, and it turned out that the person had spent time in the USA and Australia, interesting that the Australian connection came through strongest.

The audience were all die hard BBC fans. The show, of course, was edited before being broadcast this morning.

Before going to the studio we enjoyed a walk along the Thames in sunny warmth.
