CBC Should Stick to News and Information Programming
IMHO, the CBC should just stick to what it does best: news and information programming (National, Marketplace, Fifth Estate, etc.).
On the 'Arts' front, if I had my way, rather than producing it's own original comedy and drama programming, it's TV offerings would focus more on both live and prerecorded performances of various Canadian musical artists, Orchestras, composers, songwriters, playwrights, etc. In effect, mirroring it's radio programing to some extent (minus the Radio 'Plays'--- old time radio is just that...) For example, I like the fact that 'Q' is filmed and available for viewing, especially for the musical performances.
