Horizon dumbing down

I used to love Horizon, it was one of my favourite programs on TV.    Something strange has happened over the last few years though.   They have stopped presenting both sides of the arguments and simply try to sensationalise the topics they cover..

There seems to be a trend of so called ‘scientific’ programs dumbing down.   Horizon has also started to do dramatisations about natural events where it appears to be full of ‘what ifs’ and ‘could occurs’.

It does appear that I’m not the only one who feels this way.

If the BBC is funded by tax payers shouldnt we have a say on how we want the programs made.

I like what this says

If this is anything like the recent crop of Horizon programmes it will have been dumbed down to sub moron level so probably just right for an American President (although I doubt he will ever see it). Horizon used to be the BBCs flagship science programme but not any more.

Simply google for Horizon dumbing down and read what everyone thinks, well everyone outside the BBC and BBC America by the looks of it.

Even wikipedia has entries about the dumbing down.

    Dumbing down is a control strategy. Get used to it. Ecourage your circle to switch off the box, as I did 23 years ago.
