Tyne Tees Look North (North East)
It's on sky 291 in the lifestyle section, I'm thinking a temporay epg position and at some point it'll swap with one of UKTV's +1 channels, most likely it'll move to 133 (currently occupied by Gold+1) I think.

A very minor downside though.

You'd have thought too they'd have opted for something a bit more exciting than Inspector George Gently for the 9pm slot on it's first night. Is it just UK repeats they're showing or will some new imports get an airing too? As I've said before with a channel like this this is where Australia get it right with forcing them to spend 10% of their budget on original commissions - even if it's one series a year I do think something original really would have boosted this channel at launch.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

I echo the comments about how good it is to see UKTV putting another channel on Freeview - certainly far better than a timeshift channel!

Does seem odd that they're happy putting Birds of a Feather and Last of the Summer Wine in there in such quantity though. I know UKTV have always played fast and loose with what genres go on their channels but with a name like "Drama" you'd think it would restrict them a bit more, maybe to comedy dramas. At least "Yesterday" is a bit more vague.
