When is The War of the Worlds on TV? Who is in the cast?
Could be fun.
Agreed, as long as we don't get Poldark with tripods ..
At risk of hijacking my own thread, the BBC certainly have the budget. Like every household in the UK with a TV, I must pay a license fee of about $200.00 a year (they send detector vans round to check).
With commercial sales, that's about $7.5 billion a year.
It is an outdated funding model, also there is a woeful program balance (technology and SF, around 20% of other networks output, is minimal).
The BBC also changed when Thatcher took a hard look and decided that given the size of organisation, a proper management structure was needed.
Unfortunately the unforeseen long term downside was a huge decrease in creative risk taking.
