    I wish bbc would have a live session or channel on you tube to let fustrated viewers air their questions. I have one question that you might be interested in and doing an actual program on it. Why does BBC not have any Disclaimers before a certain Series or programs if they can be harmful to ones health or surroundings. Like take Eastenders, That is a program that handles difficult and dangerous issues in our community like drugs, wife bashing, why don't they show man bashing by wifes? Also at the moment they are handling homosexuality, Ben & Callum. Does the BBC not realise that playing such a character is dangerous for acteurs? As some people lose it as they belief that the acteur is actually really doing this in their private live as well. Some people can not keep the unreal separate from the real as it seams so real. have a look on you tube,insta and other medias. The discussions about Ben & Callum and Gray!for example. I think this would really be a great topic, as everyone else has to have disclaimers on their website i don't see BBC doing this in any sense of the word.

  3. Amazing as usual..

  4. You are a great team without a shadow of doubt. It’s a pleasure listening to you and learning English in the same time. My best wishes to you in 2019!!!

  5. Does Rob really steal biscuits?
