FOLLOWING the recent crisis at Radio Two, I was interested to learn that suspended presenter Jonathan Ross is in the middle of a three-year contract with the BBC.
Mr Ross presents the BBC's Film 2008 and has his own Friday night TV programme. For doing this, the BBC is paying Mr Ross £18 million over three years.
For the same amount of money, the BBC made the natural history programme Planet Earth, which took five years to make, and has been sold to TV stations across the world. In 2005, the BBC made the classic drama Bleak House for £6 million, also sold worldwide.
Instead of paying presenter Mr Ross more than £16,000 a day, the BBC should stick to what it knows best. That is: documentaries, classic drama productions and current affairs programmes.
