Being away from my home country for many years now, you still get the odd moment when you feel deeply proud of some of our achievements, this happened again to me yesterday as it often does and my admiration was once again focused by and reacting to the BBC. Not only do they produce wonderful shows like Coast, but Spooks last night when Harry got kidnapped by the FSB right at the end was just wonderful BBC at their very high quality best (it still has me all a flutter - The only down side is waiting so long till the new series comes out). Spooks demonstrates how we all should deeply worry about the state of the world at the moment . but also be deeply proud that people stand on the walls of our democracies and defend us with their lives - I hope I could be so brave if I ever had to face such a threat.
I have a couple of friend s who work at and worked for the BBC and I can feel the pride when they talk/write about the beeb.
Long may they reign and the license fee remain we all need them pushing the envelope on all fronts so others follow.
Once a brit always a brit I guess
