The 12-year-olds running the BBC website
The Teen Vogue-ification of media continues
There are many moments that mark one’s transition into a grumpy old man, that strange character change men endure and which is caused either by our brains shrinking or the sad decline of testosterone levels . One of mine came a few weeks back when, arriving home in the evening after the kids were in bed, I realised that our new smart TV was so complicated for my ageing mind that I wasn’t actually able to find BBC1. There I was, reduced to tears of frustration because I now seem to have 5,000 channels and all I wanted to do was watch Wolves v Liverpool.
Luckily, while I’m unable to access normal TV without the aid of children, I can always log on to the peerless BBC website, an institution which is worth the licence fee in itself.
