The rumours are probably a tactic to alarm parents enough for them to mention this to their MPs, thus hopefully frightening the government about further cuts.

James Purnell said recently that there were 'no plans' to axe BBC4, which is my main concern, but didn't actually say the same about the kiddie things.

In many ways it didn't bother me that the Tories got an overall majority in the election - but their savagery with the BBC is one way it does.

Wish they'd make there minds up. Their proposal up until recently was to extend CBBC's hours once they'd closed BBC3.

It's more a coincidence that :osborne: announced huge BBC cuts a few weeks after meeting Rupert Murdoch...
