 Observer | Kids' digital BBC wastes licence fee
And the BBC will claim that whatever it broadcasts is public service, even if it replicates channels provided by broadcasters who don't have the privilege of a generous licence fee.
The whole purpose of funding the BBC by licence fee is to enable it to take risks, be daring, serve the underserved and complement the market.
I believe that the BBC does have ambition to be creative, but, by its relentless desire to compete at every turn, it risks reducing choice for viewers by driving competitors out of the market.

There were 13 x 15 minute episodes of "The Herbs",that first appeared on Feb.12th,1968 in the Beeb's famous lunchtime Watch With Mother timeslot.With a PSB remit to both entertain and educate its' young audience.With the 'education' coming in the form of rudimentary botany and a few morality tales.
Continued.....Stop motion animation was also used for other famous BBC contemporaries like The Clangers, Bagpuss,Camberwick Green and The Magic Roundabout.And that 3D visual element helped to create a believable "reality"-even though time and money constraints meant it had to be used in a fairly rudimentary form.
