until may: everyone's invited to put world's largest public broadcaster in play 

Nothing I can think of could more quickly make the world a better place for 6 billion people than if the world's largest public proadcaster got on side of all 6 billion beings. We've argued this openly since 1984 in a bestselling book; and we are collating game ideas here. Below is one concept relevant to what the BBC's dumbing down diet if for Btitons tonight.

What questions would NOT make an "insult the nation" tv quiz?

Tonight, to round off the dumbest week of globalisation programming aunty has ever shown, the BBC tests the nation with a two and half hour quiz of multiple choice questions. Dumbing stuff like which food was what cartoon character's favourite.

Suppose instead the BBC has chosen 20 questions which informed the nation on worldwide humanitarian, sustaianble or current affairs knowledge - what multiple choice question would you offer?

The BBC's broadcasting abuse of the public licence fee and indecent expectation that it should continue this monopoly dumbing down is debated at KB here and at this worldwide co-syndicating blog and at some of these google top 10 selections. The British people have until the end of May to respond as to whether they wish dumbing down to continue for another decade or whether something more enlightening could link broadcast and 21st C networking media. This is a test case for the world since the BBC is the world's most resourced public broadcaster.

Dont you just love the democracy of it all? 

We the people have 2 months to come up with pitches on how to turn the BBC from the least stimulating societal forum to the most valuable one - which is what it should be as world's largest resourced public broadcaster. Of course we'll neither get paid for good ideas nor will we get listened to unless we mobilise. And after that we are supposed to keep our peace for another decade, by which time whatever globalisation does to this world won't really make nations' peoples have much of extra stage anyhow

So if you know anyone who thinks that the BBC could inpire wholly different stories of human heroes and what the woorld could be than it otherwise will, please join us

or have a look here first

And of course our dear British Government sees no links between this and other great tasks its been promising to make 2005 memorable for such as ending Africa's poverty. Now if they did, they would have got the BBC onto this productive idea we first outlined 21 years ago or they might be doing a roadshow with this 100 yellow triangles game
