Attenborough on “Lifestyle” shows

without comments

Sir David Attenborough, one of the BBC’s longest-serving presenters, has criticised the broadcaster for allowing lifestyle shows to “run rampant”.
“Do we really require so many gardening programmes, makeover programmes or celebrity chefs?” he asked.
Sir David said it was “a scandal” that there was “no place for continuing series of programmes about science or serious music or in-depth interviews”.
The presenter was giving a speech about public service broadcasting in London.
He singled out the BBC’s long-running science show Tomorrow’s World as a “very inventive programme”, and said the demise of such strands was “sad”.
