Just one big turn-off: TV grandee Sir Jeremy Isaacs slams 'boring and lazy' programming
One of broadcasting's most distinguished figures yesterday delivered a withering verdict on British television, describing much of it as 'a complete waste of time'.
Sir Jeremy Isaacs said quality drama has been replaced by 'boring' and 'lazy' reality shows and cookery programmes.
Sir Jeremy, who set up Channel 4 in 1981, said the country's biggest broadcasters have fallen behind their U.S. rivals.
In the early 1970s, Sir Jeremy produced The World At War, the documentary on the Second World War, which at the time was the most expensive series ever made.
