British programming welcome

Andrew Stark, (Coast Community News, June 25) wants the ABC and SBS to merge and to have less British TV on the ABC.

Considering that USA culture and entertainment dominates Australia, the few British programs are very welcome in my book. I reckon the Brits offer more civilised entertainment, particularly in the field of human relationships, animal welfare and human kindness, than any other nation. It is so welcome from the usual sadism and smut so prevalent today.
