If BBC went commercial as some of you hope, then it will kill off some of the other stations as they will take a large proportion of the advertising revenue due to their figures being so superior.

Through the BBC, I can listen to non league football and county cricket whilst watching programmes without being battered by gambling adverts. ( Just compare the ht analysis of games between BBC and ITV and how many of you will watch the final on the Beeb as opposed to ITV?)

People like Lineker and Evans are paid the market rate so that the BBC can have some top talent.

For £12 a month, they provide superb value for money.

Presenter Pugwash(most irritating annoying voice on TV, and the other 3 pundits

Not too many personalities cells between them

what they provide would cost ALOT more if they were a private company.
AND you'd have to put up with adverts.

still, the longer the Tories stay in power i guess its only a matter of time, there can't be much left to sell off...

In many cases, 'talent' is subjective and I would argue that Evans, in particular, irritates more people than he entertains.

At the end of the day, the BBC offers an incredible amount of exposure to its presenters. That exposure alone is priceless, so if any presenter isn't prepared to accept a maximum annual pay cap of £500k, let them go - there will be a queue around the block for their job.

When a gobby breakfast DJ is paid TEN TIMES what we pay our Prime Minister, something isn't right.

Totally agree but make that £150k tops. As you say huge amount of residual income is a result of exposure on the BBC so very unlikely many will leave.

I'm sure there are more than enough pundits that can present these programmes fro a lot less than what is being paid.

The trouble is that the TV employers seem to think that the likes of Lineker, Shearer, Evans and Pants and Dick are all national treasures and we actually miss if they spit their dummies out and walked away if they were offered say £100K max'.

For the record no I wouldn't miss any of them.

Top level sports stars and performers are a limited asset and as such can demand the wages they obtain, those who just sit around talking about it are not and therefore they should have their wages capped accordingly.

As for privatising the BBC - no there is a lot of good work and limited interest subjects that would no longer get an airing or funding and we would be subjected to an endless stream of cheaply produced reality programmes, cooking and chat shows where the stars peddle their latest books, films and music.

I wouldn't miss them either. When you watch BBC football highlights or Match of the Day there is more inane analysis of what we've all just watched than there is actual football shown. I, like most people, can see for myself if a player has made a mistake or made a defence splitting pass. I don't need some over the hill ex-player describing it and showing me 5 times from every conceivable angle. In the past year I have taken to recording Match of the Day and watching it back later. In that way I can cut out all the repetitive chit chat and just watch the football. Bring back the days of Brian Moore and the Big Match, just introducing the programme and letting the football speak for itself. Even the commentaries were better with just a solitary commentator and no in-match analysis from yet another (highly paid) ex-footballer pundit. Wasn't it Jimmy Hill who started all this "expert panel" malarkey back in the 70's?

Yes, talent is subjective so you have to go on what they offer the BBC.
Evans pulls in 9.43 million listeners and hosts the most listened to breakfast show.

If you were to limit their salaries to 150k then they would all leave to go commercial. The BBC would look a bit of a laughing stock if all its top talent walked away.

Having worked in the industry, I can say the BBC could easily make savings by dramatically reducing the amount of middle managers they have and, as said before, who don't take responsibility when things go wrong, such as the Russell Brand /Jonathan Ross saga.

Josh, Josh, Josh, this will never do. You should know better than think common sense and facts are any good here. This Is Shotsweb, only bile, vitriol and invective are the order of the day here. It also helps if you don’t have a clue what your spouting about too...

Arent elite footballers overpaid also.. They only get paid in monetry terms what company's will pay to secure their services.. Doesnt mean they are more important than the rest of us but money will always be a great source of emotion.. Thats why the country fell into the trance of leaving eu, money. Which was a lie.

Scrap the bolshevik broadcasting company.
Perhaps you are being a bit harsh.The BBC is in fact controlled by the establishment, inhabited by many wet Liberals and socialists. No chance of dislodging them. Likewise, can`t get rid of Gary Lineker(a wet goody good Liberal) as Match of the Day would collapse and I also would feel devastated at not being able to listen to his great words of wisdom on various subjects.
