ahh .. <re read> yes .. that would be another interpretation ...
but, again,  it certainly used to be the case and AFAIK it still is that
you can get ( it might be 3 quid or something $ trivial to cover the cost
of hte card) a BBC only card that is free on production of your TV
licence. I know Murdoch et al were not very keen on the idea and try and
