Title: Clive's Points Of View
Post by Pete Atkin on Today at 13:46
I expect most of you probably listen everfy week to Clive anyway on Radio 4, but you may not look regularly at the Radio 4 messageboards.   In the latest CJ thread there are a couple of mentions of the songs (MVs possibly?):  http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/mbradio4/F2766771?thread=6092167&skip=0&show=20

Yes, some interesting responses there, but also some depressingly miserable types who feel that a considered criticism of Clive is to call him a "tripehound". I did once post a couple of things on a BBC messageboard, but then found endless responses from people with a sense-of-humour bypass. I gave up.
The contrast between the frequently poisonous atmosphere on the Beeb and the pleasant, friendly tone of MV posts is yet another indication of our effortless superiority.  ;)

Hi Rob, yes, I read the beeb board too and quite agree with you. What a miserable, curmudgeonly read it was.

Aha - now you get an idea of what it's like to be a BBC producer!  In the 80s I produced four series of what was at the time the most popular scripted comedy show on the network (in terms of both numbers and audience appreciation, according to the research - and it won awards as well) but the only letters I ever received about it were complaints.
