BBC presenters not celebrities

Published 10/04/2013

To most licence-fee payers, 'celebrities' are doctors and nurses in our ER departments; electricity linemen who work in dangerous conditions to restore power; firefighters who risk life and limb to fight fires and PSNI officers who risk their lives to protect us all from terrorists.
