A leaked report of an internal BBC Wales document outlined a series of potential programme cuts involving current affairs and political shows and coverage of the National Eisteddfod and the Royal Welsh Show.
The BBC executive has warned that cuts of up to 20% are needed across the board so the organisation can cope with a license fee freeze together with new responsibilities to fund S4C and the BBC World Service.
The plans will also affect Welsh sports coverage including football coverage on Radio Wales and even if Swansea get their well deserved promotion to the English Partnership I understand there will be no coverage of midweek games.
This has come as no real surprise, as the BBC have perpetrating a con on the Welsh public for years with its claims to be investing in Wales.
This from cooperation that just spent millions on the Royal Wedding and is currently boring me to death with the Chelsea Flower show. But it plans to decimate. the political and cultural coverage of Wales
But Anyway the BBC commitment to Welsh Broadcasting is merely to flatter us whilst actually doing very little . Sticking a BBC Cymru/Wales logo on a program and saying that it "is made in Wales" doesn't make it Welsh and this can be shown when you look at some of these "Welsh" programmes.
When the new Dr Who started had a number of episodes set in Wales but since the departure of Russel T Davies it seems the program are made in Wales and the Welsh connection has all but vanished.
Simply moved production from Bristol where it is still set and has no Welsh connection.
Only made in Wales no Welsh connection any BBC Cymru/Wales of no consequence.
And the same could be said of Children program such as Tracy Beaker and Young Dracula where some of the young Actors may be Welsh and it is filmed here there is no Welsh emphasis and BBC Cymru/Wales do not seem to produce any children's programs on a Welsh theme.
So the BBC future plans seem to be to be to produce more and more programs in Wales whilst cutting programmes on or about Wales.
I am always annoyed when I hear the words "Made in Wale for the BBC" though they should add "But it has nothing to do with Wales" (Sherlock for example) : because apart from creating some jobs it is meaningless to the cultural life of our Nation.
It seems the attack on S4C was only just the beginning of the attack on actual broadcasting for Wales( rather than Broadcasting in Wales) and the BBC plans to move out of London are only there to cut costs and they policy seems to be is to remove Wales from the media and treat our Nation a little more than a region of England which is of course is what they always have thought it is.
