A new TV series about Amir Khan and his wife as just started - trying to make them to be the new Kardashian's apparently!

I've watched the first show already...

...I won't be bothering with the rest though!

Meet the Khans - Big in Bolton  P09b7ysz

Anyway for anyone who likes this sort of thing, the link is here -

Mrs Pig wants to watch this but i'm not bothered. It's funny as when he was a young lad in the Olympics everyone in Bolton loved him, now you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who likes him.

He seems like a nice enough lad to me but he isn't popular in Bolton these days that's for sure.

I think he's probably a nice bloke but a bit dim, who has been taken advantage of by others, mixing with the wrong crowd as a youth/young man.

He's been controlled by his father and is now controlled by his wife who seems to want the money more than him.

He said on the episode I suffered through that he's only really happy when he's boxing and I can believe that, it's the only place where he is confident in himself I guess.

I suppose I fell sorry for him a bit, well as much as you can for a multi-millionaire who is a bit dim and made probably many poor life choices.

Still he has his millions, mansion and trophy wife out of it.

He needs to get that bloody wedding venue finished, he said he's already spent around £11 million and it's nowhere near finished.

Lady Bobsworth watched some of the first episode and told me how truly awful it was. She wasn't wrong. I had the misfortune to catch about ten minutes of Episode 2 last night.

Who at the Broadcorping Castration gets to decide that this is the kind of bilge the Great British public want to see?

Viewing figures (top50) are published online retrospectively by Thinkbox.

I didn’t. 
Although reluctantly I will ask you why you think television companies commission TV shows if not for viewing figures?

Viewing figures equals lowest common denominator equals money. Not all about money though. A lot of it's about propaganda, some of it's about culture but by God there's a tsunami of dross and I'm not keen on dross or tsunamis. End of story.

Public Service broadcasters such as the BBC certainly don't commission TV shows based on viewing figures.

It's current mission statement is -

"To act in the public interest, serving all audiences with impartial, high-quality and distinctive media content and services that inform, educate and entertain."

 I've watched the first hour of it, will finish it tonight but it's been great so far. He was a proper character was Big Jack.

So did Lady Bosworth and I, Boncey. We agreed that that was worth watching.

It shouldn’t be all about the viewing figures, totally agree, nor is it entirely  but viewing figures are a prerequisite to existence whereas content quality isn’t.

“quality” it isn’t defined by what you like either. And I’m fairly grateful for that.

Funny how you seemed to have accidently on purpose missed my post above, which can again be used here to disprove what you are saying.

Fortunately the BBC have sufficient viewing figures to justify their continued existence which in turn affords them the luxury of producing a marketing mission statement.

Oh yeah..you “accidentally on purpose” (quote) missed the bit I wrote about the necessity of existence.

Talking of the value of crap mission statements, this from American company Avery Dennison:

“To make every brand more inspiring and the world more intelligent”

They make stick-on labels. Very Happy

The BBC excels at works of drama which make the licence fee worth paying on its own. I've not seen much to rival Line of Duty, Cracker, Bleak House and so on. Outstanding stuff...

Eh???

Wtf are you on about again?

The BBC only exists because it is incorporated under a Royal Charter - which gives it a legality in law.  If the Charter is not renewed the BBC will have to close down - although that is extremely unlikely to happen.

The BBC hasn't come up with that mission statement - it is imposed upon them by the Charter!

https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/577829/57964_CM_9365_Charter_Accessible.pdf

The 'necessity of existence' is not relevent to the BBC as you seem to believe it is, it works to a completely different reason for being - it is a 'public service' broadcaster set up by royal 'statute' and not a 'commercial' company type one.

This can easily be evidenced by why the BBC let its most popular show 'The Great British Bake Off' move to the commercial channel it is now on.

No other broadcast organisation would have let its jewel in the crown (in terms of viewing figures) go so easily otherwise!!!

Oh but I forget, you know everything about anything and are never wrong ever!

Yeah right...

He doesn't wind me up, just the reverse really, I find him utterly laughable in his attempts to first of all make out he knows best on any and every subject and secondly how he ties himself up in knotts, and with his lies and abuse, trying not to admit he was ever wrong!!!

I know I definitely get under his skin by the way he reacts, which gives me yet another laugh at him!

It's simple enough to solve this issue, if he stopped posting bollocks and passing things off as though he knew what he was talking about then there would be no need to call out his fake news and no need for him to turn himself inside out trying to make out he wasn't wrong in the first place!

It isn't about posting bollocks, it's more to do with passing them off as facts.

And when 'caught out' then lying and posting abuse in an attempt to not be seen to be wrong.

It's the internet for God sake, nobody minds if you've got something wrong and nobody cares if you hold your hand up saying so but to lie and deceive simply to presumably impress and bunch of random strangers (which is what we are on here) is just ridiculous and suggests somethings lacking in his life that he's seeking validation for on here.

If he wants to make out he's infallible and throw abuse at me then I'll have fun proving otherwise!

That's all this is to me.
