I’s slightly torn on how to report the news that The BBC Big Screen in Victoria Square has been turned off “due to technicalities in the planning process” with a review to take place in the new year. On the one hand the screen does show a fair amount of local film and animation work and is available for festivals and the like in the city. But on the other hand I’m vehemently opposed to the whole concept of public televisions believing them to be pernicious contributors to the levels of mental polution in our built environments and nothing is going to change my stance on this. The Big Screen should go.
In my opinion.
