Allan Gregg in Conversation, Big Ideas and occasionally Saturday Night at the Movies are the only shows I watch on TVO - as do most of my friends.
I am curious how they came to the decision to cut two of the more intelligent shows.

I hope they have reviewed how this will affect their donations. Two sides to the coin. Cutting costs but may also cut viewership due to the shows popularity.

I have not watched Saturday Night at the Movies since the 70s. The focus on educational and civic programming seems sound enough to me. Like many businesses with failing business plans, changes are in order. That usually means layoffs for things that aren't working.
To the author, the word "while" contains an H in that context. Thought you might like to know.

OK, Let me understand this, these people who will leave TVO, where will they go? Will they go to other networks. Well, with the CBC being cut back that makes private networks. For my money most of what is broadcast by private networks is lacking. If they are unemployed, isn't that just shifting their support to the EIC payment fund. When that runs out, or when they will accept wages offered by private sources they have in effect reduced their wages. Maybe, that is the object of the people in charge, to lower the cost of wages in the private broadcasting services, by reducing the number of alternative positions.

Have I got it right?
