Ok, couldn't care less about all details blabla, but now the main question: will the LP guidebooks stay about the same. I haven't looked at any links yet, so don't blame me for not reading it;)

It appears that way. Everything stays pretty much as is in terms of the guidebooks, but BBC will probably try and help LP online a bit more.... who really knows?!

Actually, i think it's their commercial arm as opposed to the publicly funded bit that bought it, Dave, so you are still funding an utter load of rubbish...

You know, I haven't watched TV in six years, but back when I still did (and the few times I couldn't avoid it in hostels), programs by the Beeb were usually the only thing even remotely worth watching. It might be an utter load of rubbish, but it sure as hell (used to) beat the even more craptastic rubbish produced by anyone else.
