There are many things that make me mad. The TV industry is full of stupidity and vicissitudes, But nothing is more idiotic than the helicopter noises that replace local TV coverage on BBC HD regularly during the day. Run a HD service or don't bother, fat cats.

This organisation gets hundreds of millions from a tax and programme sales and has been incapable of delivering local news in HD for years for unfathomable reasons.

This is sheer broadcasting madness and the BBC should have their Charter reviewed if they can't do something this easy and simple.

And of politicians can find the will to sponsor local TV stations, surely, they can find a will to sort this mess out.
