4The socially mobile are portrayed as uncaring; businessmen as crooks; money-making is to be despised. As a result, in the values it exudes, British television has been an integral part of the British disease, hostile to the sort of culture needed to cure that disease.

5Much of what passes for quality on British television really is no more than a reflection of the values of the narrow elite which controls it and which has always thought that its tastes are synonymous with quality.
