Tony Williams refers to the sad decline of British television and the
refusal of PBS stations to program Potter's Karaoke and Cold Lazarus. In
Canada they are being shown uncut by the CBC, but the Corporation recently
announced that, as a result of funding cutbacks, they will be eliminating
all US programs (no great loss) and all British programs with the exception
of Coronation Street.
The Toronto Star recently carried an article which suggested that PBS had
decided not to show Karaoke and Cold Lazarus because Potter had stipulated
in his will that they could not be cut.
