The BBC TV licence fee is set to be scrapped in five years with the broadcaster’s funding frozen for the next two years, the government has said.

The annual payment, which normally changes on April 1 each year, is expected to be kept at the current rate of £159 until April 2024, with additional ways of funding being considered by Nadine Dorries.

The culture secretary said the next announcement concerning the BBC’s licence fee “will be the last” as a new funding model is being considered for when the latest deal expires in 2027.

My walking mates and I have walked in Cwm Orthin many times but have never been down the many mines that are in the area.  However on Monday there is a feature about these mines and Old Uncle Albert sent me this message about the mines.   It might be worth watching for anyone interested in this type of thing

Monday 31st Jan 2022 on Yesterday at 8 pm.Apparently the shaft can accommodate the eiffel tower and statue of liberty

Although the timing is not great, I enjoyed the first episode of the Ipcress Files last night on ITV, it took me back to the sixties, looking forward to watching the whole series.

A new look X-Ray will return to BBC One Wales for a new series on May 30th at 8pm and will be travelling around the country for six weeks from today.

For nearly two years – through the height of the pandemic – X-Ray was filmed inside BBC Wales’ Central Square building in Cardiff. Now, with restrictions easing, the programme is going back out on the streets of Wales to meet the public. And with the current cost of living crisis, X-Ray has never been more important.

The X-Ray team, including presenter Lucy Owen, will be hitting the road, bringing a new look pop-up set to six different towns and cities and members of the public are invited to come along...Llandudno North Shore Beach Promenade (near Prince Edward Square) – June 21

The new series will feature a new ‘Ask the X-Ray Expert’ section, where viewers can meet the team and ask for advice from experts on subjects such as building work, buying a car or booking a holiday.
