I haven’t owned a TV licence for over 10 years. I got threatening letters for quite a long time, but I simply replied that I didn’t own a TV set. After a while the letters stopped. It’s saved me about 150 pounds a year.
Now it’s rumoured that the licence fee is to be scrapped. So I’ll be able to watch TV again.
But I have a question for regular TV viewers: is it worth watching?
It certainly used to be 20+ years ago. But I have no interest in Celebrity Come Dancing and similar dross.
Jeremy Paxman used to be pretty good, but I think he’s defunct now. Anyone remember Cliff Michelmore? Or the Brains Trust?
What little I see on other people’s TV sets isn’t very impressive.
It was better in black and white.
