ON Friday evening (May 8) I watched ‘VE Day 75: The People’s Celebration’. Well done the BBC, it was brilliant. Just what television is all about.

I would suggest all headteachers make it compulsory viewing when the children return to school – let them miss a computer lesson. The musicians were classy. With my negative comments sometimes about the channel, it feels great to praise them.

More of this television please.
