Thanks to more DJs joining the presenting roster, we'll be starting the year with a continuous run of 9 Yewtree-free episodes, which should be our longest unbroken run since the carefree days of...

The BBC Local Radio listings are very poor these days, however they have never listed anything more than frequencies for commercial local radio stations. Even that is out-of-date and inaccurate,...

There is one issue that puts me off flat screens which is very rarely brought up, and is one of the main reasons why I intend to stick with CRT for as long as possible - and it's not a technical one....

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 point of Channel 5 +24 is the same as for all timeshift channels - to bring in additional advertising revenue for no extra effort.


That was presumably the original intention, as it first...

I never expected it to be back on 4th September, and I'm not sure why everyone thought it would be. This page: http://www.bbc.co.uk/proms/whats-on/2014/categories/proms-on-tv shows that the Proms...

They were putting out a cricket commentary on DAB last week. It seems strange that I can pick up Radio Kent on DAB here in East Surrey (via the Tunbridge Wells transmitter) when there are still...

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...

BBC Radio Scotland is not an equivalent to a BBC Local Radio station. It is vastly better funded - 22.6 million compared to less than 3 million for the average station in England, which means it...

There's absolutely zero chance of anyone proposing closing Radio 1. It's a long established network with over 10 million listeners. Remember the uproar when 6 Music was proposed to be closed, which...

It is starting to look like it will be the last TOTP for a while, though. BBC Four will be showing Proms every Thursday from 31st July to 11th September, and as far as I can fathom from the Radio...

I'm not averse by any means to hearing new music or unknown artists, but 6 Music does it so much better. Dermot manages to make it all so dull, and Saturday afternoon Radio 2 isn't really the place...

I get the impression that by the end of the 70s, Tony was beginning to fall out of favour and was perhaps viewed as being a bit 'old hat'. His earlier on-air breakdown after his wife left him can't...

The BBC did not start adding the copyright notice and date of production to the end of programmes until 1972. 'Terror of the Autons' was produced in 1970 and shown at the start of 1971, hence the...

The good news is that if 1980 get the go-ahead on BBC Four, we should lose fewer episodes to Yewtree (10 episodes in 1980 vs 18 episodes in 1979) because more DJs were joining the presenting rota,...

I see the plan now is to move Sussex from 11B to 10B, presumably leaving London 3 as it is, but on the list they do appear to have mixed up the frequency blocks for the three London muxes.
