surely, given the context of clip as nothing more than a 2ish minute

alone criticise the BBC for "failing in it's duty to provide a public
service"?

I mean, is that really what the AA and it's 2,000 members think of the beeb, 
or was it just the throw-away personal opinion of it's director?
It's not what AA members think of the BBC but what the BBC (and the public) thinks of the AA. ("Who?? That's where we go for motoring stories isn't it?") I agree that in its own context the clip wasn't exactly full-on awful; but well done to Nick for commenting on it - I only he hope he contacted the programme producer as well as Hort Week. But he cannot be criticised for drawing attention to the fact that good sound advice is out there, if you go the right people. In other words that AA also stands for Arboricultural Association. MORE comments from the AA are needed in the media, EVERY time a tree-related story arises

It's called Raising our Profile and I thought we were in favour of it.
