    Her show is being axed to cut costs.

    The cynic in me wonders if this has something to do with the equal pay rulings of the previous week.

    I think 215,00-219,000 was probably fair genderwise. Unconvinced Lauren Laverne should be on £90k more.

    Never seen it... heard it... no idea what channel it's on.

    Not sure who the presenter is...

    I think it's a regional programme about the history of the latter half of the 19th century.

    I watched it once when I was on holiday - I admire her but I thought the programme was actually quite dull.

    More likely to be something to do with the very poor audience viewing figures.

    They'd be better off axing Question Time. That programme has totally lost any reputation it once had for lucid, informed debate, and is characterized by angry, ignorant audiences and panels chosen for their controversial opinions rather than any expertise.

    Totally agree - it's rubbish now

    and...why do we still have to endure "The one show"

    According to something I just read Derbyshire learned about her show being cancelled from The Times article.

    Keep it classy BBC

    Or... "urgh people i disagree with are on my TV ... cancel this filth!"

    I'm going to guess "lucid informed debate" is hearing stuff you already think. This is how you end up in an echo chamber.

    It's dreary, woke and attracts a very small audience. Less than 250k.

    So they can get their mates on to sell their programmes.

    Anyway, the BBC is on the way to a big change. Hence the direct debits for the licence. That can easily be converted into subscriptions. They'll buy in all the drama and documentaries from Netflix and Amazon etc, the sport from BT and Sky and then they'll make their own News and Current Affairs to keep their skin in the game.

    They'll use the private companies who are using all the BBC equipment, staff and resources on their days off.

    Get a job at the BBC, network, start your own production company, sell your output to the BBC. Nice little earner on top of your obscene BBC salary.

    Oh yeah! It's been going on for years.

    What's wrong with the odd controversial opinion?

    Please, someone, update me!

    will-osweighton said "It's dreary, woke and attracts a very small audience. Less than 250k."

    It's the word 'WOKE' - I keep seeing it, but I've never found out what it means … can anyone give me a definition?

    I was at uni with Victoria - she was the year below me.
    I'm sad this is going, but don't thinks it's just about money.
