    I see that the last thread on background music has been closed, perhaps because some posts were off-topic. But obviously a lot of people remain irritated by the persistence of programme-makers in drowning out their actors by insistence upon wholly unnecessary background tinkling. My wife and I are now constantly asking each other "what did he/she say?" And no amount of fiddling with the TV's audio settings can filter out the noise which obliterates the dialogue.

    Even more inexplicably, every reporter on any news bulletin now seems to be under instructions to find the noisiest place available and then shout at the camera/microphone ... TV ... us! "What's he saying?"

    Clearly, alas, despite years of comments by viewers, NO-ONE'S LISTENING

    Please read the existing open discussion and post there.

    Apart from the FAQ information, you'll also see some links posted by technologist, which leads to information about what the BBC are doing.

    Closing this as it is a duplicate.
