You may find that your faith is misplaced Starry, apart from his original Virgin businesses, he hasn't enjoyed huge success. His rail operation is no more efficient than most of the others, he failed in his attemt to run the lottery (a great shame I feel), his round the world ballooning came to nought and I don't believe that his finance business is overly successful.
He may of course be putting something together for the pay TV franchise, I hope he has more success, he seems to be gaining a reputation as the White Knight who rides to the rescue on everything, but wins nothing.
A Virgin Bride would be nice Starry if somewhat unrealistic at my age. ;)
I think that the man's heart is in the right place and perhaps there would be some merit in his acquiring a multiplex. As one of the other threads suggests, there is no real reason why they all have to be controlled by the same company and why many of the companies couldn't run free to air with advertising revenue support only.
Longer term, the more free to air programmes there are, the larger the uptake. The potential audience is huge.
