Is this what they call extending choice?

If you happen to be up early on a Sunday morning and put on the TV or the radio you're assailed by programmes largely comprised of people reading from and commenting on commentaries that are in the Sunday papers. I find this a puzzling way to organise broadcasting. If I felt that what the Sunday papers had to say was a major priority in my life then I would have bought them and would be reading them, wouldn't I? What I really want is an old black and white film, preferably about a war. Nobody's providing that for me, are they?
