Have you written to the BBC to express your displeasure at finding a programme you actually wanted to watch taken off?

BBC Television (Programme comments)
Television Centre
Wood Lane
London
W12 7RJ

Ask them for an explanation and when the programme you wanted to watch will be rescheduled; and when you get a reply, write again complaining about it. Someone told me they don't take notice of your first letter other than to send a reply. A second letter is considered a complaint.

There seems to be a lot of people who moan at the content of the Mike Harding show. I've spoken to Mike in the past about it and to be fair to him he told me that he doesn't have a lot of say - if any - as to what he plays. His producer puts the playlist together and he has to go off that. I think Mike's playlist would be totally different.

Email Mike and give him your suggestions for what you want to hear - mike.harding@bbc.co.uk Ask him to pass your email on to his producer for his comments (I'm afraid I don't know his name and the BBC website doesn't give any clues!)

Let us know how you get on.

Cheers

Mark
