I didn't think anyone lived long enough to get a free one

Not good news for the BBC especially as it is for 6 years

Ah, not to cater for the minority I suppose.

Every little helps I suppose.

With the recession and general "we are all in this together", then the BBC will have to consider how wisely they spend the money. No more high wages, no more jollies etc etc etc.

wid001-- But for how long will the free tv licence be retained for the older citizen. Bit like the free bus pass, and the uncertainty of that concession.

If it were up to me there would be no tv license for anyone.

On the face of it, this looks good. However, I can see the BBC raising costs of other services - while still keeping the licence fee frozen.

Maybe cynical - but it just might possibly true.

Bring back the 'test card' between certain night hours. That should save a bit of dosh. After all the majority of viewers are asleep then.

Good idea! Could you also arrange children's TV from 4PM until the news at 6PM and testcard again until 9PM - with an occasional interlude to break the monotony? *grin*

If we're to have the nightly shutdown returned, can we have individual national anthems this time. For England I'd like to have Jerusalem agopted.

It seems a lifetime away since er had the nigh time shutdown for TV click here
