Update: The BBC are aware of the petition!
A couple of days ago, I emailed the PA of the head of drama commissioning for the BBC. In the email was a passionate plea for the survival of The Hour, along with a link to the petition.
Today, I got a lovely email back from her, saying that she’s forwarded it to him.
I don’t need to tell you how amazing this is. Since having sent that email, another three thousand people have signed it - not to mention the amazing #savethehour campaign that has sprung up in the last few days. This has to make the BBC see just how loved this programme is, and by so many people.
Whatever the outcome, our voices are getting heard. We’re getting through to them.
As always, I’ll bring you more as and when I get it.
