BBC dances away with the plaudits thanks to Strictly

Editor's Viewpoint

The BBC has shown that it still has a touch of class in making quality programmes for a mass audience, and this was clearly demonstrated by the latest Strictly Come Dancing series that ended on Saturday night.

At a time when live television is under pressure from catch-up and binge viewing, the BBC has shown that it can still reach an audience of young and old with highly professional family entertainment.

The outcome this year was unpredictable, and even if the winners Joe McFadden and Katya Jones were "dark horses" right to the very end, this was a series where everyone was a winner.
