Been enjoying Michael Sandel’s series, Justice – A Citizen’s Guide, on BBC4. 30 minutes of moral philosophy from Harvard (with perhaps the most multicultural audience this side of a Benetton casting session). Sandel himself is the spit of NY mayor Michael Bloomberg.
When other channels are doing Hotter Than My Daughter/airport or farm docudramas/Gok, the space for something intelligent expands. Sandel might not everyone’s TV dinner, but as more dumb content floods in, the greater the opportunity for challenging content. Nice work, Beeb4, more please.
