The BBC has provided the world – yes, the world – with outstanding radio drama for 75 years. Yet as of the 1st of April 2011, the BBC’s World Service Radio Drama department is being completely axed – and shockingly, the BBC World Service will no longer broadcast any regular drama.
This essential betrayal of the BBC’s primary mandate – to provide preeminent public service broadcasting – is as short-sighted as it is wrong-headed, and it’s the topic of tonight’s OPEN HOUSE.
