Jean Seaton, in her capacity of Official BBC Historian appeared on Radio4’s The World This Weekend to provide context and defence of the BBC Licence fee. In a discussion about the continuation of the licence fee presenter Mark Mardell spoke with those from all sides of the licence fee debate, including a member of the DefundtheBBC campaign. Seaton provided a historical context for the fee, before noting that the licence fee allows the BBC a degree of independence to hold the government to account. The full programme can be heard on BBC Sounds.
