I think the future of the BBC should be actively discussed.
The DCMS & BBC need to discuss the future of the license fee in the digital, mult-channel age. It is becoming increasingly untenable.
Perhaps BBC News could be separated from the BBC, making it a separte company. Therefore, N24 wouldn't be part of the British Broadcasting Corp. yet would become part of 'BBC News' group. N24 & the website could sell advertising then.
Just a thought. Controversial.
What's the site for the C4 prog SN?
Can you still vote for them?
The same backing music has been used in various CBBC on Choice links that I've seen over the past few days (particularly when birthday cards are being read out) and I think that the music originated as a CBBC backing track before the CBBC 1997 relaunch (Black/Yellow) which is/was used when they didn't want to play pop music during links, especially during the links for 3:30-4:10pm programmes
Surely the BBC Kids Channel will just be a part of BBC THREE, so there may be CBBC ONE from 3.30-5.35pm, CBBC TWO in the mornings and mid-afternoon, and CBBC THREE from 6am-7pm.
I believe that the new BBC Three and Four channels will only be on-air in the evenings. The two new BBC Childrens' channels - one for younger viewers, one for older-younger viewers (?!) - will share the space of Three and Four during the daytime on the BBC's digital services... but they will appear to be on different channel numbers.
This is to allow the channnels to appear in different areas of EPGs. Currently CBBConChoice appears in the Entertainment area on Sky, not the Childrens' area. This is not good for those few people (something like 1%) who use the EPG rather than channel up/down/number surfing.
This is very common on Sky - where I believe channels like MTV Dance and Nick Jr share the same broadcast space but appear to be on different EPG channels....
