Yes they could have Ads
between every show
BBC1 is watched, on average, by over 60's year olds.

Pensioners are better off than they were years ago.
Any pensioner an pension credit will still receive it for free.
I am all for it.
Some older people are better off than a lot of younger people just starting out.

Obscene.
Time the BBC were dragged into the 21st century.

The view has always been that to means test it would cost too much.

Obscene the BBC now dictates government policy.
It should never have been handed to the BBC to make this decision.

More now than any other time, it's time to scrap this dinosaur tax on anyone.

Force the BBC to take sdvertisers like all others have to.
