All reality tv and these pop idol type programmes, where we end up with susan boyle who has made a fotune out of singing othet peoples songs, would go in my room 101 and Jeremy Kyle and jerry springer as well.

Just because they sing other people's songs is not a reason to criticise. Most great singers do that - Sinatra, Garland, Presley, Buble etc etc.

Having said that Subo would go in my Room 101 as well.

I see there's going to be a second series.

Excellent viewing... Above anything else for a very long time! More to watch in 5 minutes than in 5 months worth of other programmes.

I gather Sky have signed up to broadcast all our home 50 over games next season, with the working title I'm a Warley, Get Me Out of Here.

I haven't been watching Peaky Blinders so can't make a comparison but one show recently that I loved was Sherlock. So cleverly made and with a great cast. They're making a third series of this which I think will be on early next year.

Sadly the BBC's other big thing - the mala campaign ... Has not been so successful after panorama and other articles this week (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-24504652 etc.). Nice girl .... But run a PR campaign for her??? Is that part of aunties mandate?

Peaky Blinders has been superb... If the Beeb was cut down in size back to 2 channels and say 3 radio stations, it would be able to concentrate on what it does best.... Rather than run campaigns for the liberal do gooders. It might be able to show a little bit of cricket occasionally and have money to keep it cricket commentary going on the web.

Not sure what you mean! The only thing I worry about is that all this media attention will make her even more of a target for the Taliban. I truly hope that isn't the case. What an incredibly brave girl!

Indeed..... Totally agree.

Also, so to are those girls who remain there and can't attend a very nice school in the Edgbaston area. Hope they are all ok too.

But the BBC running program's including a thirty minute Panorama special in the days leading up to the announcement of the Nobel prize.... Why? It did come across as a 'political campaign by Auntie to influence. Let the poor girl get on with her life. Perhaps an update program - but not one that comes across as timed to be perhaps be politically motivated?

The BBC is an organisation that is too big, plays politics and P1$$es our money up the wall. It needs reshaping so that it can focus on quality (like Peaky Blinders) rather than producing 'crapovision' on its spread too thinly multi media platform... Telling us what it thinks we should hear on the basis of some undeclared 'liberal' value shared by people earning well in six figures because that is "the market rate".

I didn't watch it to be fair but surely she wants the publicity and all this can only bring awareness just how bad things are for females over there where the Taliban are and can only help cant it? I don't know! I'd rather have programmes like that than see stuff about celebrities who have done nothing or reality tv. Peaky Blinders is good but hard hitting programmes like Panorama have got a place on tv. Afterall its real life.

If you want to watch a good film about what life was like for women in Afghanistan when the Taliban ruled after the Russian occupation then I recommend Osama. Very bleak but very real!

Peaky Blinders.... What a series! As I've said... This is what Aunty should be focussing on.
