BBC hires stay-at-homes to present the artsmain
The television version of BBC’s Front Row will be presented by a restaurant critic, a media analyst and a World Service journalist who loves watching films.
Two out of these three say they never go to theatre (or, by implication, opera and concerts) because that’s when they are putting their kids to bed.
Who at the BBC is responsible for such challenging, counter-intuitive casting decisions? Is the entire corp now an extended version of the comedy show, W1A?
