As I get BBC Surrey on 1368 booming through loud and clear, I've recorded the announcement in case anyone is desperate to hear it. Haven't heard a reference to 'metres' on the radio for a very long...

Smooth will still be audible across most, it not all, of the Surrey and North Sussex area, via 102.2 FM and London DAB.

I think all the transmitters that were ever going to get COM7 have it now? This appears to be the full list: http://www.a516digital.com/2013/11/rollout-of-extra-freeview-hd-channels.html

This was the most recent update I could find, from July: https://twitter.com/darrenwaters/status/486126209714376705. It was hoped to be going live this summer - but it's autumn now. :(

Indeed, I think there may be some who are taking these TOTP repeats for granted. BBC Four don't have to show them at all, they could quite easily take them off and replace them with more repeats of...

The Top of the Pops episode from my birthday (yes, I was born on a Thursday) was repeated on BBC Four three years ago, and it was lucky they showed it when they did, as it now sits on the banned...

Masterteam (BBC teatime quiz show with Angela Rippon from 1985-87) used to do that. They would have three games spread over two episodes.

Rightly or wrongly, I don't think BBC Four are going to reinstate DLT's shows at any point in the next few years, and nothing is going to make them change their minds. I fear that if people kick up...

By taking several weeks off for the Proms, they had obviously planned this year's repeats around the assumption that DLT's editions were not going to be reinstated. There are ten non-Yewtree...

Apparently the 18th will be The Sky at Night, so TOTP must be back on the 25th. There will still be enough weeks to fit in all the remaining 1979 episodes before Christmas, though. If DLT does get...

The last Thursday Prom on BBC Four is on 11th September, so TOTP could be back on 18th September, although it depends whether that's a Sky at Night week or not!

It stretches further beyond that, it is available on Sky 117 in East Surrey, so the area that does get it is probably comparable to the BBC/ITV London region. On the other hand, we can't receive at...
