We the undersigned call upon the Culture Secretary to instigate an urgent enquiry into the decision by the BBC to close the Archers Radio 4 Message Board on 25 February, to halt the closure, to keep the board open, and to publish a full cost/benefit analysis of the financial grounds for its proposed closure, given that the message board is a source of friendship, solace, companionship, help, advice and support for a great many people and represents a unique online community of the sort the BBC should be fostering, not closing, if it truly wishes to interact with its listeners.
