Default Tell BBCAmerica want you want to watch

I don't know if it'll do any good (I apologise if I'm behind the times on this one) but you can tell BBCAmerica what shows you want to watch through their website - who knows, if enough of us ask for the decent shows then maybe they'll do something. You can choose from a selection (some of which I have not seen on BBCAmerica before) or enter any other show you might want. Maybe if we turn this thread into a list of what individuals want and support each other by all going online and requesting everyone's choices we could get the numbers up?

Yeah, I've been asking for a couple of years. I wonder what proportion of the audience is British? Sometimes the best stuff doesn't have a huge following

I've voted for more cash in the attic, benny hill and what not to wear.

Are you being served? - I've only seen each episode 9 times. You always get something new every time you watch it.

I've got Max and Paddy on DVD coming to me from the UK, I've heard it's great.

We've found that UKNova gives us quite a few options. Its a pain to download and then burn the dvd's to watch on tv, but we can watch more of the programs we like this way. We're currently watching a 13 episode show called "Coast" its pretty interesting, I really recommend it.
