Agreed, Steve. I am a BBC lover and always have been but this is not the type of activity they should be concentrating on right now.
Personally, I think BBC1 and 2 during the day should either show archive material, news, and educational/public service programme.
What nonsense, so it should stop doing what it's done for 32 years?
As everyone keeps saying whatever they're planning (and we don't know what the idea is) it won't be anything new. BBC daytime has always had a mix of lifestyle, factual and public service programmes and that's how it should be. I don't see that a daytime One Show would fall foul of that, it's a very worthy programme at the best of times
The BBC is not remembered or cherished for its daytime output - it never has been and it never will be.
It has been 32 years of middle-of-the-road, non-licence-fee-justifying dross for the main part.
It is better to divert the talent, funding, and resources to those areas for which the BBC is rightly revered.
Use the daytime to stick on archive material, news, and educational/public service programmes.
You obviously lack any sort of quality filter if you think, to paraphrase you, that "a daytime One Show would (be) a very worthy programme." Feel bad for you.
Given that Homes Under the Hammer and Bargain Hunt regularly pull in a decent audience (1.5m or 30% share according to wikipedia for the former) and that there have been many other successful and formats grounded firmly Public Service principles (Crimewatch Roadshow, Helicopter Heroes, I’m sure there are others), your comment that it’s not cherished or remembered doesn’t stack up.
Admittedly daytime was once the preserve of debate talk shows like Kilroy or The Time The Place, or quizzes like Going For Gold or 100 Percent. Some of those quiz shows are dimly remembered if at all. There has also historically been a reliance on imported drama, especially from Australia and New Zealand. Any of them still on the BBC? Nope (at least I don’t think so).
I’m not sure talent and/or funding has been ever “diverted” to daytime. Look at the BBC daytime dramas that exist: Father Brown, Land Girls or Doctors. They’re both perfectly decent shows, well made and appeal to a good chunk of the available audience.
The complete joy that is The Repair Shop should also be celebrated as a daytime success.
