TV Licence Dodgers' Excuses In Video Campaign

Officials have exposed some of the excuses people give for not having a television licence.

One thought he was exempt because his pet corgi was said to be related to one of the Queen's dogs.

Another household claimed they merely used the glow from the set as a lamp to help them read.

More than 400,000 people were caught last year watching TV without valid paperwork, which is more than 1,000 a day.

The annual levy - 145 for a colour licence and 49 for a black and white - is used to help fund the BBC's domestic television, radio and internet services.

TV Licensing has launched a drive to encourage more people to pay up and has teamed with a Bafta-winning animator to bring some of the excuses to life in a short-film, published on YouTube.

sounds reasonable enough to me , in fact reading a book by the light of tv screen sounds about the best use for a tv , >:D
BTW I haven't had a TV licence or a TV for 20+ years , but have endless fun with their TV licence enforcers , ( their official title ) so far 6 inspections , and enough letters to have wasted a mature oak tree ,

I couldn't live without my TV entirely as I would miss documentaries on Discovery and Animal Planet too much not to mention the F1 coverage !
