In the United States, PBS executives, managers, personalities not only dip into the public purse, but ask the public and corporations for donations. One has to wonder how much money PBS would have in the kitty if production was also volunteered. But I have the feeling that a lot of those PBS folks will be paying a thousand bucks a plate at an upcoming Democrat dinner with Bill Clinton.

(Yeah, I'll vote in 2006, just as soon as a party comes along who listens.)

1) Haven't paid the licence fee for 8 years; can't watch TV as if I'm caught will get a $2000 fine; have watched it in other peoples houses - not missing anything. The bias and emotionalism of the BBC (and the other channels) I find difficult to stomach.

You left out this scam.
The film makers get to sell the features they make for PBS after they are shown.
The production costs of these films are paid for by the taxpayer. After being shown, the films are/may be sold by the film maker for big bucks. The film makers and PBS both profit from a federal investment.
