Bu why does the BBC need two 'mass market' channels? BBC2 was originally created as a high-brow alternative to BBC1 as I understand it. Why change that and move most of the quality stuff to BBC4? I...

That's a good point. Why don't we have sports news programmes on terrestrial? They have them on Italian terrestrial tv.

I agree with this as well. Some seem alarmed at the idea of dumbed down news as if its never happened before but if anyone's watched C5 at all in the last few years in particular since SKY took over...

Exactly. Why are people on this thread bothered that Desmond wants to make C5 news more showbiz based? We've got the BBC and C4 for more high-brow news so we hardly need any more like that.

Exactly. Local tv channels wouldn't just benefit the local tv operators themselves and the viewers (though that would be justification enough imo) it would also be a godsend for local...

This is a revelation to me. I had assumed it was ITV digging their heels in about this. Having said that, it does actually make sense that ITV did want to get rid of the region and Im not surprised...

It would make sense for STV to cover the Scottish Borders. Then at least we would get a neat border between ITV and STV territory running exactly along the English-Scottish border.

So is that for definite? Everyone in Brighton and Hove with Sky or Freesat gets the south-east version of BBC1/Meridian? Is it the same for people in Surrey and West Sussex?

Why is the BBC/ITV South-East region so much smaller than the South region?

Yes but Im not talking about the team of 66 or even Euro 96. Im talking about now and I don't think we're currently as good as we were when we hosted either of those tournaments.
