I think the article is quite draconian but believe that this would be a good start for public debate. After all, if license payers have to pay the license or be heavily fined, should they not also have a say on where the programming should stop and what should be included?
I suggest Radio 3 might also be retained - no-one is going to replicate Radio 3 in the commercial world. It would be good to have a radio station that actually plays all four movements of a four-movement symphony!
But the more important concern I have about the BBC is that these days it thinks of itself as a competitor to the various commercial stations and websites. This is not the way it should be.
