Aaron, I think we all get that you don't like it and you're no doubt going to keep putting the boot in but there is nothing to dictate that a programme on BBC One has to have a bigger budget than BBC Two.
I'd make an educated guess that
I'm Alan Partridge
had a much larger budget than
consider its multiple sets, larger cast and more location work.
Is stating factual information ‘putting the boot in’, or is it just stating factual information? Partridge might have a very dedicated following on here, but nothing is above criticism. I’ve liked some elements of the show, but the format doesn’t work IMO and some of the jokes are just plain lazy.
It would stand to reason that shows receive a larger budget when they move to BBC One or are commissioned for BBC One rather than BBC Two. This, of course, may not be the case for This Time. My point was that This Time could have been produced with a smaller budget for BBC Two and still got the same number of viewers.
