Dear old Simon Luxton would be over the moon with Grange Hill repeats.
Didn't he once try to launch an online Grange Hill channel with his extensive video tape archives?
Given that BritBox UK is operated by ITV and handled by the ITV Hub team, I suspect that's why.
Are any of the BBC Joan Hickson Miss Marples on there? They were remastered in HD for a US Blu-ray release years ago (but haven't been released here in the UK on Blu-ray). The UK TV repeats are still from the 4:3 PAL original transfers by the look of it... If they were on Brit Box it would be interesting to see if they were nice, clean HD versions, or the muddy, 4:3 PAL composite originals.
