Christmas TV 2020

I don't get the hatred for Back and Forth. Likewise saw it at the Dome, and I'd never seen an episode of Blackadder before, and I really enjoyed it, probably for the time travel element, but it's also funny too. It's a shame the rumoured 5th series seems unlikely to ever happen. Sad

BBC Four to become archive channel (p15)

I think it would be a real shame if BBC Four ended up closing. I'm in my 30's, so not in target age range as suggested by a lot of media articles, but I love all the pop culture and music documentaries, TOTP repeats and other archiving programming. In fact it's probably one of my most watched channels.

It's a wonder really that BBC haven't pushed their 'BBC Archive' brand a lot more, move all the history docs and music coverage onto BBC2, and then focus on repeating old shows on BBC Four. Not the stuff that gets non-stop repeats like Dad's Army and Only Fools, but stuff like TOTP, maybe Blue Peter, Tomorrow's World, Play for Today etc that don't get seen so much!
