At 1200-1215pm local time BBC Radio 4 has a series looking back 100 years to ordinary people in WW1.
Call me a grumpy old man, but I get appalled
by the BBC's weak attempts at local regional accents. It really grates on me. It is not just the BBC.
Why can't they get rural accents right? You can always tell a BBC Radio 4
drama a mile off! I guess they assume most listeners won't notice or care.
I watched the film "Warhorse" . It was appalling: a Dartmoor, Devon
village was actually filmed in Wiltshire I think. It looked nothing like
Devon. The Devon accents were very very bad. No excuses: they spend
millions making these films and need to get the basics right.
No, get the accents right please!
