“this life and top gear”

published 15/08/2000

2 great shows Top Gear This Life

heavy on education so can be boring

bbc2 is for more education programs and many go through the night including open university, but two of its best programs to date are the motoring magazine show top gear and the sort of soap opera come drama This Life. Top gear just test drives all the latest cars by wheel spining them, handbrake...

“Bbc and sci-fi”

published 11/08/2000

Does show sci-fi

treats sci-fi shows badly!

Not really about BBC2 but BBc in general. Why do they treat sci-fi fans as a minority? I mean loads of people like to watch sci-fi yet the BBc acts like they don't matter. Whenever sport comes along its always sci-fi that is removed yet in the world cup Eastenders was still shown when the footie...

“Two's Company...”

Seen as alternative to some

Continuing my trawl throw the world of television, I come secondly to (strangely) channel number two, that’s BBC Two for those of you who don’t have a TV. But then, if you had no TV, but had a PC you’d be pretty strange. Anywho, BBC Two it is then. Despite existing on the...

Enlightening, entertaining, sexy....

... but not sexy enough for some?

Five million viewers can’t be wrong! Tipping the Velvet, Andrew Davies’ adaptation of Sarah Waters’ Victorian lesbian romp, has actually trumped The Office in the ratings. The advance publicity for this drama was simply phenomenal – pretty much every newspaper and...

Grown up and childish , clever and down-to-earth, ...

It spawned The Weakest Link

I don't have cable, satellite, virtual reality or home cinema, but I do have my Goodmans TV and the five terrestrial channels, and of the five on offer , BBC2 shines most brightly. First, TV is essentially a massive waste of time. It is an almost entirely passive experiance and more people spend...

“BBC2 see the future of Ann”

published 28/03/2001

Ann Robinson, great links between programmes

Well its BBC2, Open University programmes at 2 in ...

The whole country is currently going crazy over a woman who 12 months ago you wouldn’t have looked twice at. She’s not a sexy symbol (by any means!), not a film star (yet), but may someday hopefully have grand illusions of power (i.e. running the country!). She is of course Ann...

“We're paying for this?”

published 03/09/2000

Some good programmes, funny comedy zone

Comedy zone in decline, boring, black & white film...

BBC 1 & 2 share between them the best programes shown on terrestrial television, but you would expect this due to the £70 - £80 we pay for our licensing fee. The big advantage with the BBC is the omission of adverts on this channel. Channel 4 shows absolutely rubbish programmes with the exception...

excellent variety

ive worn out the number 2 on my controller!

The BBC have come under a lot of stress in the last year. First ITV stole match of the formula 1, then the match of the day, then they had their saturday morning show SMTV Live rate higher than Live And Kicking. So what can the BBC turn to? BBC2 has always been a major driving force for the BBC...

“BBC2-with variety”

published 30/12/2000

Variety of programmes

Easily filled in with old stuff

Looking at BBC2 at the moment (literally) there is a film on. I think this seems to reflect the general image that BBC2 has given the public of itself. Well, if you look more closely at BBC2, at the right time of day, the image transforms. From 5:15 onwards is where it kicks in. The Weakest Link...

Alternative, not so bothered about content

Inconsistent

BBC2 is the kind of channel which you might be able to go weeks without watching, but then you can find a week of programmes that really captivate your interest and the imagination. Currently they have one of the best quiz shows on TV showing at 5:15 every day in the Weakest Link with the...

“Home of Buffy???!!??”

published 11/07/2000

Normally a good channel

Where the hell have you hidden our slayer??!!??!

Right, Buffy is one of BBC 2's top rated programmes yes?....YES. Buffy is more popular than repeats of ancient episodes of all the Star trek series yes?....YES. So then why does Buffy get removed everytime the world tiddlywinks championship, or something equally important is on. I mean I would...

“BBC 2”

published 06/08/2000

Education and entertainment

Excessive sports coverage

Well since BBC 1 mostly covers news, BBC 2 is more of a educational and entertainment channel. In early mornings there are Bitesize programs to help with peoples study, and at evenings there are plenty of entertaining programs. From 6pm, Simpsons, Star Trek, Buffy, all of them. Before that, there...

“An oasis of sanity”

published 18/07/2000

Some of the greatest television in the world.

None

BBC2 has consistently over the years produced much of the best television in the world. The list would make any tv mogul furious with envy - Fawlty Towers, Monty Python, Horizon, Fast Show, Arena, great plays and films you would never get to see anywhere else (including the best of foreign films)...
