Whilst it was impossible it would seem for Lord Tony Hall, George Osborne, John Whittingdale and Rona Fairhead to include any of the Great Unwashed in the recent outrageous covert deal covering the latest licence fee settlement, there are no less than 4 public consultations to get involved with concerning the future of the BBC.

We should make no mistake, cuts are going to happen.  Cuts arising from DQF and the last covert deal have still yet to be completed and with somewhere between another 10-20% in light of the latest, um 'deal' things are going to be for the chop. 

That said, it's still important for people to get involved, as Tony Hall only recently remembered, the BBC does indeed belong to the people of the country, so the more who use their voice the better.  So what do you want to keep?  What's important to you and the nation?  Would you like a more independent BBC, a more accountable one??  Then tell 'em...

First off is the Tories Green Paper, which can be found here:

And the associated Survey which can be found here:

All the links can be seen here:

Secondly, the BBC Trust has launched it's response to the Green Paper here:

Along with it's own consultation in which it requests the public's opinion as to what they wish the BBC to be in the future, take part here:

Thirdly - The House of Lords Communications Select Committee.

Scope of the inquiry
The Committee is to conduct an inquiry into the public purposes of the BBC and the mechanism by which the licence fee is set. The current BBC Royal Charter expires at the end of 2016. While the formal process of Charter Renewal has yet to begin, the report published by the House of Commons Culture, Media and Sport Committee entitled The Future of the BBC has laid out many of the key issues and conflicting perspectives. The intention of this inquiry is not to cover the same ground as that report but to look in detail at two specific areas of the BBC: what should the public purposes of the BBC be, and who should set the level of the licence fee?

Make a submission at the link below.

Finally, the Culture Media and Sport select committee are running their own Inquiry in BBC Charter Review, unfortunately the site seems very slow tonight so if you want more info, try the link below
