    A place to recommend upcoming programs ;)

    BBC - Sunday 8th November - Planet Earth
    Episodes 6-11 start. I know the last series was a little hit and miss, but still, this is generally visually stunning stuff, and I love it.

    And Hal, there are more penguins ;)

    I agree.
    And I thought the first half of the series was fine. Some of the best wildlife TV for years.

    Lol I second that Ramble. Who needs TV at christmas anyway?

    Doctor Who and Match of the Day every few days will be just about my only essential viewing.

    I might even give Dr Who a miss, not much point since most of the second new series has been crap and this looks worse then that. MOTD is the only worthwhile thing to watch. This christmas is going to be terrible.

    I'm looking forward to the two closing episodes of The Vicar of Dibley. I have hopes they will let the series go out on a tremendous high, rather than the on-the-nose sympathy baiting manipulative and innappropriate claptrap served up in the last Christmas special episode.

    Yeah, Dr Who is looking a bit bad what with no Rose, more evil santas and Catherine bloody Tate, who I can't help but moan about.

    What about the adaptations of Dracula, Ruby in the Smoke & Wind in the Willows?
    The BBC does dramas of such high quality they alone are worth the license fee.

    Two new Little Britain special shows, they should be funny.

    Obviously things depend on your taste, not everyone likes Green Wing, This Life or Doctor Who.



    I'm sure few of us will miss the tribute to Steve Irwin.
