Dear Points of View,
I was sitting a few days ago with some (foreign) friends watching BBC World News. A certain gentleman who shall remain nameless appeared to do the weather. Why oh why oh why was he allowed to present the weather to a massive global audience?
I think the bosses at the Beeb sometimes forget that they are playing to a global audience on World where not every viewers first language is English. I have to say, once pointed out to me by my fellow viewers, I had to agree that what the weatherman said was impossible to understand. He spoke too quickly, with a very, very regional twang, and I bet many overseas viewers found it difficult to understand what he was saying.
The next day, yet another gent appeared to do the weather, with a different yet also difficult to understand regional accent.
Luckily, Daniel C was presenting later in the day. No issues there!
Come on, BBC. Get a grip!
Funnily enough, said "offenders" have hardly appeared on World since the above post. We are now graced with the presence of the great Daniel and the awesome Louise Lear.
Thank you oh so much BBC for listening to my plea.
