Famous quotes containing the words bbc, home and/or service:

    The word “conservative” is used by the BBC as a portmanteau word of abuse for anyone whose views differ from the insufferable, smug, sanctimonious, naive, guilt-ridden, wet, pink orthodoxy of that sunset home of the third-rate minds of that third-rate decade, the nineteen-sixties.
    Norman Tebbit (b. 1931)

    If I’m on skates, I feel at home no matter what I’m doing. If they wanted me to sing and dance I think I could do it just because I was on skates. When I’m not on skates, though, I feel very strange.
    Dorothy Hamill (b. 1956)

    Television could perform a great service in mass education, but there’s no indication its sponsors have anything like this on their minds.
    Tallulah Bankhead (1903–1968)
