I don’t get the criticism of them airing factual when BBC Two and Channel 4 mostly air factual
Of a generally higher quality, and they don't routinely just rename old content and try and pass them off as new programming.
BBC2 and C4 also have a much more varied schedule and both have had scripted comedy and drama, both homegrown and imported, practically weekly throughout 2019.
Stay Local. Stay Safe. Stay Alive.
