Mitch Benn's Proud of the BBC is great (thanks to [livejournal.com profile] bibliogirl for the first recommendation). Go watch it now.

That's a fantastic song, but I'm not sure I can fully get behind the sentiment. Most of my BBC favourites are from some time ago. There are many excellent British programmes not on that list, mostly made by Channel 4. I am watching much more US TV nowadays, mainly because the BBC is producing much less good drama these days. (I don't even have an LJ icon from a BBC programme.) Maybe I can say I'm proud of what the BBC was and proud when it still, too rarely, produces something brilliant.

Qualifications aside, [livejournal.com profile] jinty alerted me to a meme that seems to be developing and I feel well-justified in spreading. Here are the programmes listed in the song that I have seen. )
