Campaign to bring BBC1 and BBC2 to Canada
Are you tired of watching the same old ad rich drivel on Canadian TV? Maybe you have BBC Canada filled with out dated home and garden TV programmes from the old days punctuated with, yes you guessed it, ad after ad after ad. And to top it all the same ads are repeated again and again and again and again .........
Andrew Payne, from Montreal, has approached the powers that be and is getting a petition together to show how much support there is in Canada to get the BBC aired on Canadian sattelite and cable. Here's what he has to say:
"TO ALL EX-PATS FROM THE U.K AND IRELAND, AND ANYONE INTERESTED, WE ARE PETITIONING T.V PROVIDERS TO OFFER BBC1 and BBC2. WE ARE A MINORITY WITHIN A MINORITY, YET I BELIEVE THAT IF THE ITALIAN, GERMAN, GREEK, ARAB etc COMMUNITIES HAVE THEIR CHANNELS THEN WE DESERVE THE SAME PRIVELAGE. "BBC CANADA" HAS OVER 50% CANADIAN CONTENT, THE REST IS MEDIOCRE SHOWS THAT BELONG ON HOME AND GARDENS T.V. YOUR SUPPORT IS CRUCIAL IF WE ARE TO GET OUR 2 BBC CHANNELS. THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT,
ANDREW J. PAYNE."
