Defending the BBC against cuts

Top British acting stars, including Dame Judi Dench, Steve Coogan, David Oyelowo, Sir Ian McKellen, Naomie Harris, Daniel Radcliffe and James Corden have taken part in a new campaign video defending the BBC against cuts.

The actors have joined forces with directors Richard Curtis, Tom Cooper and Danny Boyle in talking about the Corporation and how it has inspired them over the years. The video is released under the banner “Don’t let the BBC become a memory. Fight for it”.

Radcliffe thanks the BBC for his first TV role in period drama David Copperfield. “I got to work on the first job I did with Bob Hoskins, Maggie Smith, Ian McNiece, Imelda Staunton, Paul Whitehouse, Emilia Fox, it just goes on and on.”
