November 9, 2010 (Pen Men At Work): The BBC showcases programs which account for “formulaic and derivative” television watching said a warning submitted by its governing body, the BBC Trust. In the warning issued by the Trust, it has been notified that both BBC1 and BBC2 will have to bring about a change in the kind of programs broadcast by the channel to introduce something more creative and interesting to the common man. The BBC Trust has also said that the changes will have to be introduced within the span of a year.

The report was prepared by the BBC Trust after conducting a thorough research involving close to 9000 viewers of the television channel. The report suggests that it is the programs which have been assigned a daytime slot that fail to survive the expectations of the viewers, with most of them being too similar in nature. The research conducted by the BBC Trust also shows that the range of programming has fallen to a great extent over the past couple of years in spite of £1.37billion being spent behind the BBC broadcasts.

Speaking to the media was Jana Bennett, the Director of BBC Vision, who said that the BBC team is trying their best to introduce new programs for increased viewership. Going by the directions delivered by the BBC Trust, two new programs titled ‘Wallace & Gromit’s World Of Inventions’ and ‘Five Daughters’ have been launched as part of fresh content.
