I rarely watch the BBC these days. It's a shame it's been taken over by progressives.

Which means as far as they're concerned, delivering lousy television for the masses.

This is what the BBC ought to be doing.

The popular stuff will be done by the commercial channels and paid for by advertising.

The point of a public-service broadcaster is surely to have content that otherwise would not exist, not to get in bidding wars with the commercial sector for events that would be broadcast by someone regardless?

So they should broadcast stuff that a massive majority of people won't want to watch? You can only force people to pay for this for so long.

The BBC already get into bidding wars for staff.

They don't mind spending our money on themselves and overstaffing.

"The BBC already get into bidding wars for staff."

Staff or stuff?  If you mean stuff, I know they do.  It is wrong andthey shoudl stop it.  If ITV want it, let ITV have it - we still get to see it.

"So they should broadcast stuff that a massive majority of people won't want to watch? You can only force people to pay for this for so long."

They've been broadcasting serious classical music on R3 for 50+ years - I doubt one if 50 licence payers listen to it, but it ought to exist and if the state broadcaster doesn't do it then it won't happen.

Maybe not for people who don't pay the TV licence fee.
They get the BBC channels and the teletext service for free.

Some decent points made on public service duty to cover minority interests. Except that's not what this is is it? I dare say if I was in a wheelchair, I might really love a game of whatever. I'm also pretty sure that I'd appreciate that it wouldn't be of much interest to many on TV. This is signalling, in all its facile glory.
