Interesting Fact - Men and Women

The head of the BBC has announced that the corporation will not make any more all-male comedy panel shows.

(According to statistics 75% of the people appearing on quiz shows are men, and shows such as QI and Mock the Week often have an all male panel.

When talking to the Observer newspaper about his plans for better representing his audiences on screen, Danny Cohen said: "We're not going to have any more panel shows with no women on them. It's not acceptable."

Cohen, who ran BBC1 until last spring and before that was the controller of digital channel BBC3, also said he had work to do to make sure there are more older women featuring in the corporation's television programmes.

There's hope for me yet.)
