Doomed ?

The cheeky testudines at Tortoise are having a pop at their onlie begetter  - the BBC.

Next month they're offering a Thinkin billed "All-star dramas and water-cooler documentaries have made Netflix home of the TV everyone is talking about. As the deep-pocketed streaming giant inches towards global domination we ask: is the BBC, and all it stands for, doomed?"  The debate will be at Tortoise HQ, less than 600 yards on foot from Broadcasting House (a route still regularly travelled by Chris Cook, ex Newsnight, who may be lacking chums among the shelled ones).

Tortoise founder James Harding had custody of BBC News for four and a half years from 2013.
