BBC bosses are said to be delighted about their new programme schedules for the spring.
Charlie Dimmock, Chairman of the Corporation told The Spoof:
"This spring we are presenting a schedule that is the most cost effective ever and it represents fantastic value for money the licence payer.
"As a result of our 'dumbing down strategy' over recent years, we believe that people are receptive enough to accept any old rubbish.
"There will to wall to reality karaoke shows, the odd bit of news and the remainder of the time we are bringing back the potter's wheel and the test card. Focus groups show that this is what the public want"
When pressed by our entertainment reporter, Barney Skydish, to put a figure on the actual cost of the new schedules, Mr Dimmock said:
"We haven't got all figures costed in just yet but we believe that it will be well under 50 quid, thus leaving tons for us to pay our grossly inflated salaries"
