And does it mean BBC4 won't transmit until 6/7pm? I really like BBC Knowledge and watch it in the daytime. This is a real shame if it happens. Why can't they just keep CBBC on Choice and rebrand it and make another CBBC channel (for older kids) on another frequency (or whatever they're called)?
Or am I being a little stupid with these ideas?
PS: Where's this Broadcast magazine? Is it on the net or do you have to buy it?
Following on from what Dave said, it's just to save on capacity. Besides, isn't BBC Knowledge just a 6hr loop of programming anyway? I think the working title for the new CBBC channel is 'CBBC B' - nice and catchy! I'm sure they'll be changing it
Broadcast is on the net http://www.produxion.com/asp/nframe.asp
but the magazine is much much better. You'll probably be able to get it from WH Smith but our college gets it delivered each week
BBC Knowledge is a 4/6 hour loop, yes, in daytime.
Programmes change at about 6pm. They don't get repeated again. New programmes are shown in a 4/6 hour loop. I'll miss the daytime programmes for the sake of Childrens BBC.
Why can't they just put the programmes on CBBC on Choice - that loops about every 3 hours! It would have a wider variety for the kids and save Knowledge space for us who enjoy watching informative programmes.
