Certainly not the Albert Hall. The DVD video of a her Paris Concert
seems to be a favourite of those demonstrating Bose Lifestyle
systems. Of course I had to buy this DVD for my wife, not that she's
shown any interest in Bose stuff - unlike her friend whose husband
has the Quad 57s - she said she'd heard a Bose system recently and
was trying to persuade him that it was really rather good - ominous
signs!!! Another friend has recently successfully fought off a Bose
attack from his partner. I'm in danger of sounding rather snobby -
the Krall CD is quite pleasant though, as a background when people
drop round for drinks.
- Hi Guys
Decide for yourselves if it is biased, BBC News 24 is streamed live, watch
it for a while http://news.bbc.co.uk/.
As to the organisation's liberal leanings I guess there are plenty of lovies
in there who tend to be that way but imagine the fracas if people were asked
to disclose their political leanings in a job interview.
There have been some real cock-ups lately in my view due to two factors:
1) Out-sourcing a lot of content production because it is cheaper.
Remember, it was a content providing company that messed up the interview
with the Queen.
2) As a rule the personality profile of lovies makes them poor managers.
The above has me painting with a very broad brush without much evidence but
I believe it's along the right lines.
Finally, few privatisations of national institutions really succeed

Well, it seems our biases are showing. I regard The Guardian as slightly
left leaning, or at least it used to be, and the Daily Mail to be right
leaning and associated strongly with Conservative/Tory party politics.
