Specifically today, the BBC dictators have removed Round the Horne from the Radio 4 Extra schedule, at 8 o’clock, midday and 7 p.m., series 3/episode 9, btw. Yet, Mark Steel’s in Town remains, so too Yes Minister, both excellent. Obviously the decision is related to the Queen’s passing, but why take exception to Round the Horne and deny listeners/licence-fee-payers the opportunity of a laugh? Those who don’t want to listen don’t have to. I object to a BBC executive being high-handed, he or she thinking that they know better. Here’s last week’s episode:


Probably next Monday’s Horne is also due for the chop (funeral day)…


… when the news-reporting will once more be 100% Royal and there’ll again be no mention of Ukraine, Pakistan, and other important World matters, and all BBC Radio & Television channels will be identical, one imagines.
