Seems encouraging: "So I tried to work with our folks to have the shows they present represent contemporary Britain, not the Britain of 1850."

They do seem to be showing some good stuff lately...could do with less "encore" repeats though.

I'd ask him to bring back EastEnders and save me giving $10 to Dish Network for the PPV. Actually surprised that he mentioned EE in his piece.

Why the hell do people want re-runs?? The BBC needs to show something fresh, unique and challenging. Footballers Wives is not entertainment neither is tuning into the lives of chavs in Eastenders.

But, each to their own I guess. I prefer thought provoking programs, not the shite they air

While I'd love to ask for re-runs of some great comedies that haven't yet been mentioned - Teachers, Peep Show, Nathan Barley to name a few, to be honest I want to see more of what I can't buy on DVD.

I think we're starting to see more of that now anyway, as other people have said. There seems to be more current BBC drama and a little less cash-in-the-#$%*&^@-attic, which is a huge step in the right direction. In fact, during this last week, I reckon 50% of my viewing has been on that one channel.
