[[note]]It is fair to say that even on the BBC, that nominal hour has been drastically cut back because of the BBC's neurotic need to show endless trailers - internal adverts for forthcoming shows, and big Brother-style reminders to pay your licence fee or suffer. The BBC is also making more and more shows with one eye on overseas sales to countries that have commercials. So a BBC hour is edging closer and closer to 42 minutes of actual hard content.[[/note]]
