Having grown sick and tired of the utter tripe on 'normal' TV, I've recently steered over to BBC4 to see what's happening there.
Over the past few days have seen some really great programmes (IMHO): Tom Petty & the Heartbreaker 'rock-u-mentary'; a film last night about Winnie Mandela, and a further documentary about the decline of the UK docks post introduction of Containers & Container-ships.
For all those licence-bashers, take a look, u might be pleasantly & interestingly surprised at what's available.
I wonder what we did before we had TV's. Instead of maybe sitting glued to the telly we should be out walking.Growing potatoes and not couch ones. Ahh those were the days.I was never in. Mind you it was safer to go out at night in those days.
Lets see went out for walks shopping visited places of interest like museams. Played board games and the old piece f chess, card games the local pubsy,
The local park, jump on a bus jump of a bus you know the old route masters, seeing kids play n the street playing tidily winks etc
now for the bbc 4 and the other bbc channels, sorry to many repeats no value for the license payer and the taxpayer. ie the dead enders or was it east enders never mind im sure its dead enders for many
