This is what pisses me off with the BBC - cutting the long form programming in order to provide content for commercial short form rivals.
What are you talking about now? You seem to think that some thing on air will be changed so that it fits the desires of a partner. It isn’t.
But, tv and radio stations do things to suit partners, and have done since the dawn of time. Using BBC World News here as an example, at 0200 on certain days, the intro at the top of the hour will include a line to welcome viewers to PBS. Does that offend you too?
