BBC money tree

I have just seen on BBC ALBA (still playing as I write) Celtic v Aberdeen ladies Live. There is a crowd of around 70 (family and friends presumably) and the BBC think it is worth sending various camera teams and two commentators to cover it. We can hear all the players and coaches shouting in a language I understand. Whereas the main commentary is in Gaelic. (Keeps switching to talk to co-commentator)
Is this really worth spending our licence fee on? If it is, then when are they going to do some live train spotting?

The thing about public service broadcasting is that it provides something for everyone. And because of this it is inevitable that a fair proportion of what they produce is stuff that you won’t want to watch.
You can accept this and enjoy the bits of bbc coverage that you like. Or demand privatisation and a world where everything is focused on profit and hosted by Michael McIntyre or ant and dec.
Personally I love 6 music and some of the stuff on bbc 4, but hate other aspects such as the grovelling coverage of the royals. Others will have different things they like or hate.
In 1989 the BBC ran a series called Rail Watch. Iirc it was based at York station during the electrification programme of the East coast main line.
You can also follow YouTubers live broadcasting from various locations.
And there was recently (within the last couple of years) a fly on the wall documentary from Paddington station which was really interesting. It included footage of a homeless bloke who had climbed onto the roof!
In essence,bim saying that railways have already been done. I find railways fascinating.
Over the years the BBC have lost F1, Test match cricket, live football, golf, Rugby, boxing, Darts, Horse racing and more. They don't even have Royal Ascot anymore. What have the done with all the money saved.
Also they are removing Treasure Quest on 3CR on a Sat morning - hosted by Jonathon Vernon Smith - gives a lot of pleasure to a lot of local people but I guess we need to help fund things that have very limited appeal / audience but are on the agenda
Have you not noticed that the licence fee is not being increased, so the BBC is having to cut back. This is why local radio stations across the country are being merged, as are the local TV regions. You can blame the government for this, a Tory donor was given the job of BBC Chairman after arranging a loan of £800,000 to Boris Johnson.
They always were a global broadcaster. Have you not heard of the World Service, which was trusted for impartial news and information? It used to be funded by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, until Cameron withdrew that.
Like sending camera crews, commentators to the Masters like Ken Brown to roll his balls on the sloping Auguster greens when the Masters feed could easily be taken and commentators could be in the studio in London. One big expensive jolly. BBC out of control with their £3,8 BILLION from the licence fee payers.
