The viewer and listener

mixI have met the team behind Voice for the Viewer and Listener, which is one of those brilliant outfits that have done an amazing job for consumers over the years but are run on a thin and thinning shoe string. Ivor Gaber, Richard Lindley (Chair) and Melanie Howard are all big hitters though and their key campaign coming up is on public service broadcasting.

Put simply, traditional regional news is dying and unless we recast public service broadcasting, the BBC will end up as a sole and monopoly provider. Surely, some diversity is needed, whether for consumer choice or for democracy?
