And Now an Apology....
You know I sometimes wonder whether people are genuine!

Who am I to say, please judge for yourself.





There's more...


Well it seems the board of Directors decided to come clean about the affair.

It fell upon James's shoulders to break the news today.

For me, memories stirred of Tony Hayward's apology for the BP Oil Spill Disaster and I pondered the possibility that Tony may have shared with James details of his 'script writer.'

~ You've got to admire the 'honesty.'

The 2011 review may seem regrettable now but with hindsight some may find it amusing.

Background to this study
As the BBC’s governing body, the BBC
Trust acts to get the best out of the BBC
for licence fee payers. In part this means
ensuring that the BBC continues to provide
excellent value for money. We commission
Value for Money investigations into specific
areas of BBC activity to help ensure that
licence fee payers are getting the best
possible return on every pound of their
licence
fee.


Presented to Parliament by the Secretary of
State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport
by Command of Her Majesty
February 2011

Gosh! The Queen Commanded this study. Thank you my dear Sovereign.

Let's hope Tony's back on his feet now, I remember that was a tough time for him.sherlock

Just had to share my relief to find that Tony is managing now. I think he's through the worst.


'On 8 September 2011, Hayward's venture firm, Vallares, merged with the Turkish oil firm Genel Energy to create a $4.5 billion company with operations in northern Iraq.'

I haven't had a license for 12 years because it's only required for live broadcasts.

Despite the fact that I'm not legally required to have one, TV Licensing agents have spent an incredible amount of time over the years, writing to me and visiting my property.
I allow them access and they seem satisfied when they leave however it's not long before they start to write again and the process starts over.

WHO NEEDS A TV LICENCE?
Anyone watching or recording TV programmes on any channel as they are being broadcast. Whatever device you use to watch programmes – a TV set, computer, laptop or mobile phone – you must pay the £145.50 licence fee. Over-75s are entitled to a free licence. Anyone without a valid licence risks prosecution and a fine of up to £1,000.

WHAT CAN YOU WATCH WITHOUT ONE?
Programmes on the iPlayer, the BBC’s catch-up service, provided you view them after they have been broadcast. Those using the iPlayer’s Watch Live function, which broadcasts eight channels at virtually the same time as on TV, will need a licence.

HOW MANY ARE VIEWING ONLINE TO DOGE LICENCE FEE?
The BBC won’t reveal how much revenue it is losing because people watch online but it is likely to be well into the millions. Three per cent of people don’t pay a licence fee, equal to a million households, but it’s unclear how many of them are using iPlayer.

HOW CAN BBC TELL WHO WATCHES LIVE OR CATCH-TV?
It can't. It relies on honesty. Anyone not paying a licence fee has to submit a declaration that they are not watching or recording live broadcasts. Licence enforcers can make house visits to check and if your explanation is accepted, they put your account on ‘hold’ for two years, before investigating again.

That is great information.

But if you have a normal tv in the house, not a smart one with iplayer and internet, they can make you pay?

We have a licence, btw. But I was told years ago that even if your tv is in pieces on your kitchen worktop, you would still need a licence.

You don't have to allow the officers into your premises.


Personally I've always taken a less confrontational approach.
Before asking them in to inspect the set-up I researched the conditions and then made a call to the licensing authority in Bristol. I confirmed with them that a television connected to a pc alone does not require a license, as long as I don't watch 'live' broadcasts.
