image for BBC releases ready made meal selection to counter financial challenges
Television Centre polenta anyone?

In a move to counter reduced TV Licence fees and strong satellite competition, it has been announced that the BBC will be releasing its own brand of ready made meals.

The move is an unprecedented within the TV Network community, the closest similarity being the failed clothing line released by ITV3.

Noel Edmond's "Crinkley Bacon", and 'One Foot in the Gravy' are now due to hit the shops in March, and will be closely followed by "MeatEnders" (a Mixed Grill offering), "Top of the Pork Chops", and "Batch of the Day". It is also believed that certain high profile personalities of the BBC are being asked to complete their own recipes, such as "Terry Wogan's Gooey Ribs" due to be launched in April.

It would seem that the new motto of the BBC should read "Nation Shall Speak Peas Unto Nation"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
