Bill Hornets here, with a birthday bouquet…
BBC TV is 75 today. Happy Birthday Beeb.
We love to hate the BBC in this country. Second only to the weather, we complain about the bloody BBC.
But here’s a tip: when you hear me complaining about the BBC, don’t join in with me.
Rather like an Italian criticizing his little sister, it’s not a team sport. Woe betide the man who agrees with the Italian when he’s bad-mouthing his sorella del bambino!
It’s the same with me and The Beeb: I love to hate it and I love to love it.
Happy Birthday, here’s to the next 75 years. Everybody loves you really. After all, you are ours…
