I believe TBE was one of the series lost in the great cull of Community Channel programmes before they re-launched as Together - although if I remember correctly, some of the editions were probably nearing the end f their licensing period anyway. Again, a real shame as Richard put a hell of a lot of effort into that series, and it is entirely what is missing from Together's schedule.
I've always thought a channel like Create TV in the States - the lifestyle/travel/arts/not-heavy-history offering from the PBS network - would do well here.
That's a shame. I know the earliest editions were made in 2011, so that would give credence to your point about licencing. I remember reading on Richard's website a few years back that the major networks had no interest in his programmes, as he was neither an academic nor a celebrity; if so, I think that that's a real shame, and it shows some narrow-mindedness on their part. I like the idea of a UK version of Create TV - I think with some slight re-tooling, More4 could be it.
