A report in The Times - 26/2/21- stated The BBC wanted to end the dominance of American cartoons on television because they prevent British children from absorbing their own culture, a senior executive said.
Children are part of families which come from many different countries with their own cultures. Is it that they mean or is for them to adhere to "British Culture" (whatever that means) ?
The broadcaster is hoping to create Britain's answer to The Simpsons as it pours extra funds into animation to win back viewers from Disney and Netflix.
The Director Of Children's Programmes & Education at The BBC, Patricia Hidalgo, said too many cartoons watched in this country are made overseas. She is telling producers to insert more identifiably British moments, such as roast dinners, into family shows.
Hidalgo cited "The Amazing World Of Gumball" as an animated series created in the UK but set in a fictional Californian town.
Maybe The BBC could consider a cartoon about Socialism. An animated series about a world without leaders, a world without money, a world where everything that is produced is available freely to everyone in the world.
As we know the dominant view in the world is the one of the Capitalist class.
Socialism is a big idea, it's a story that has to be told, which needs a platform.
