‘We’ll March To Defend The BBC’ Say Stars And Peers | TV News
The speeches at the Baftas this week showed how the spirit of defiance to John Whittingdale has spread to the stars, directors, producers, and writers who wish to defend the BBC from him.
Now a cross-party group of peers leading the campaign to halt the Government’s harrowing cuts to the BBC and backed by stars Richard Wilson, Ross Kemp, and June Sarpong has said it will take to the streets in protest if its concerns are not addressed by the Government.
In a conference, Lord Lester commented:
“If the government gives way on these issues I will withdraw the bill. If the government doesn’t do it, my goodness me, not only are we going to back the bill but we will march, so there we are.”
