The Culture Show used to be presented by a different presenter each week from a different location like Verity Sharp in Blackpool or Andrew Graham Dixon in Cullercoats or Charles Hazlewood in Skateraw in East Lothian. Now it is presented by Lauren Laverne (who I like) from London's South Bank each and every week. And the last series was presented by LL from the same bar (or whatever) each and every week. The Now Show was produced from Birmingham but when it comes on air again it will be broadcast from London.
How can the BBC ever escape claims of London-bias if it carries on doing things like this? Moving the Children's and Sport's departments to Manchester will never change public perception of bias unless what it sees on screen is clearly diverse. And Lauren Laverne's accent isn't enough.
