Sky news?
The BBC is an organisation "WE" are forced to pay for by watching other channels.
The BBC being a VAST INSTITUTION is the precise problem. It was not designed to be "nanny"...I have to pay the BBC to watch re-runs of Bullseye made for ITV from 1982!

Though I've never watched it, you offer up Sky news as a (solitary) example of free Sky TV viewing...? Precisely how politically unbiased do you think that little number is from Murdoch?

Amongst other goals the BBC was designed to educate and stimulate the British Public and beyond. So, in some sense, it was both nanny and teacher.

You do not have to pay the BBC to watch re-runs of Bullseye (whatever that may be). The BBC offers a wealth of material for public consumption; you are not restricted to TV productions, new or old. The choices you make about what you watch, listen to or read are your choices. However, if you peruse the BBC web-sites you will find a massive archive of information covering myriad aspects of life.

A 40p per day tax, I you so consider it, is, in my opinion an absolute bargain. I would far rather pay for the upkeep of the BBC than fund munitions production or HS2 railway projects. We are all paying considerably more than 40p per day in recompense for the criminal activities of a mere handful of bankers, failed IT schemes and environmental cleansing.

You are free to gripe about the BBC if you must. But consider the pleasure it brings to millions of people young or old, day in, day out.

Sky is free of course. The BBC is not only the government propaganda arm but proven liars and well need we mention OPERATION YEWTREE?
I stand corrected if SKY is free. I've never seen a SKY channel programme on my list of Freeview channels. Then again I may have deleted it years ago.
The BBC is no more an agent of government than any other media company; Murdoch, it could be said, almost runs our governments directly. And, if not directly, they are too often functionally steered via his right-wing media juggernauts. Even "New" Labour's once leader, and our PM for years, was a ventriloquists dummy for Murdoch's personal politics.
The BBC has been a vast institution for decades. Given the prevalent misogyny of a patriarchic population it was bound to have some bad apples in its baskets. Then again, the same could be said for religious and charitable organisations. "Proven liars" is a term applicable to every corner of every organisation. So, why single out the BBC?

You love the BBC you pay for it through subscirption, I don't pay Ford to drive a Ferrari, I don't pay Warbutons to eat Hovis yet I have to pay the BBC to watch re-runs of Bullseye made for ITV from 1982!

Good for a reminder
Maybe if you go to the pub, take your own drink or a friends house, watch it through a shop window etc then it's free
If you watch it at home legally then one way or another you or someone else pays !

many freebies are not free for all yet still seen as freebies

eg the o2 deals - eg the water company deals, gutted not to get my free 2 minute timer from united utilities - eg the free margarita pizza as no outlet convenient to me etc etc

A few new freebies down, there is a thread about Leeds V Sheffield Wednesday on Sky Mix, no one seems to be moaning that isn't technically freebie, as you'll need some sort of Sky subscription to access the channel.. Bit of consistency folks... :)
wish bbc would give up on football, or at least put it on another channel if they insist on buying a few games. It messes up the regular scheduling of other programs that people tune into every week/day like clockwork.
Thanks for all the comments guys, this has opened a can of worms!

What I was trying to get at was Pay per View was not required with BT/Sky or whoever to view these games. If you are not paying for a sports subscription, there are not a lot of games on terrestrial TV and maybe this would be welcomed by some.

Having posted some BT Showcase free games recently, I have not had comments like "it's not free, you have to pay for electricity and a TV to watch it on" for example. Similarly, it's a bit like a magazine that you may always buy and this month there is a "freebie" on the cover. What is free is open to interpretation I guess.

Well, I hope at least some people can use the info, and as always, criticism is not unwelcome, everyone has their own opinion on whether a post is useful or not. Hats off to bumbaclart for opening the debate.

same here. Just became aware of this through adverts for season 2 so thought I would try to catch up on the first series, but its missing the first half of the season :(
When the freebie was created, they would have all been there. It took a while to become hot, there's only 4 episodes left (2 only tomorrow). I am rewatching and would have missed the end without this thread :) I started watching a couple of episodes in, and found it good. Series 2 is coming in Spring, perhaps there will be another set of repeats?

Not a freebie, costs £145.50.
There's always one isn't there? Yawn...
1) It is generally accepted that most people will already have a licence
2) There are some exceptions to the requirement of a licence - so to some people these are genuinely, legally free to watch
3) You may choose not to buy a licence, and risk a fine - these movies would then be "free to watch". I don't condone this.
So technically yes, some people are required to buy a licence but to the vast majority this is considered a freebie. If I were to post this in deals, I'd get a load of people saying it should be in freebies - there is no perfect way of posting iPlayer info.
That's because it's neither a freebie or a deal it's information about what's on TV. It's a TV listing similar to what you could get from the TV or Radio times. To be honest it's not even a stand out film!
Wow.....do you know what? I don't know why I bother posting deals - every time I do you can guarantee someone will have something negative to say.
I was trying to point out to people with kids that there are a few decent movies available on iPlayer and I get nonsense like "this isn't free" or "you can get this info from the radio times"...sheesh.
Last deal I'll ever post - it just isn't worth the hassle.


Its true though, if anywhere this should be in misc.
no Disney though. I guess the license fee doesn't cover that.

Thanks OP

not sure what your issue is ? The TV documentary was about a man & his organisation being inspired to serve selflessly by the principles his religion has taught him . Surely that's positive no matter who/what there religion is. Sounds like your not happy with the Sikh Religion , & I can't understand why ?
All I can suggest is maybe you should start a humanitarian charity , & hope that a TV channel wants to explore the principles that inspired u . If not stop, creating negativity & lets celebrate those who are trying to make the world a slightly better place!
ChrisOm thanks for such a great comment

I presume it was meant for Burmingum....

Your suggestion about starting an humanitarian work only works for those individual who are humble and do it selflessly and not get for recognition.

Rav has been now doing it for 17yrs and hardly asked for any thing back. He has been and still leaves his own wife and young kid/s to help others leaving his child/ren wonder where is dad. He could have just shut him self out the destructive world and stayed home and worked to provide for his family. And I would say it is not he choose it but destiny choose him seeing what he had in him.

Some one like me just looks at him and say good for nothing and has wasted half of his life, not seen his kids grow up, and that's why I haven't got up and did it myself.

His team are not good for nothing like me but professionals like Lawyers, IT Engineers Doctors who also are following the trailblazer Ravi. One day he could come home in a coffin and he knows it, I cant brave it, but that is his buzz.

I hate any sort of intolerance and wrong impressions given by some individuals be it who ever.

There is a post on Mahabhart given here and the OP commented about nudity and I was compelled to leave a comment about who this about, the Great Lord Krishna.

ChrisOm once more thanks and Please keep up the good work of spreading the good word that
'Recognise All Human Beings As One!'

With due respect this post is nothing to do with independence of any sort so why did you bring this into it...

I would kindly request you to please delete your comments and save them for laters as it invites hatred and all we should do is join hands look forward and eliminate this hatred.

Otherwise I would kindly request one of the MODS to delete Burmingum it please.

Good find, though this is only the first series. Anyone seen the complete series for sale on CD?

If you got a library card ,your local library will probably be a member of overdrive where you can download the mp3 versions for free. My library also has on cd if you wish to check yours . I orgionally had this on cassette but wore it out.

The House Robots:
Sir Killalot, Matilda, Shunt and Dead Metal are confirmed back with major improvements. Killalot is apparently A LOT bigger. They've toned down Matilda's Flywheel a little so it doesn't instakill anything it touches. Apparently Dead Metal looks really impressive and has a larger saw blade.
Mr. Psycho, Sgt. Bash, Growler, Cassius Chrome and the refbot are confirmed out. Major Damage (the sole house robot in the untelevised series since the show got cancelled) isn't confirmed either way but I'm assuming it's out as it is officially retired and apparently up for sale.

The Competitors:


Beast - Chronic under a new name with improvements. Gas powered flipper.
Behemoth - Long time veterans. Powerful robot with a bucket scoop and axe. I don't what improvements will be made.
Big Nipper - Veterans of 2 previous wars. Jaws which crush and can also lift. No news of any improvements.
Bonk - Participated in the last televised series with a flipper, Mute. They're back with an axe bot. Interchangeable weaponry, apparently.
Carbide - I know nothing about this apart from it's apparently pretty destructive.
Chompalot - More veterans returning. Chompalot has a vertical crushing jaw and looks like a dragon. I've not heard of any improvements.
Crazy Coup 88 - Never heard of this robot. Nor can I find any info.
Dantomkia - 2x series semi finalists. Gas powered flipper. No news on updates.
DisConstructor - Competed in season 7. High powered sloped spinning disc.
Draven - It's only appearance was in robot wars extreme. It had a vertical crushing beak which could also lift. From what I've heard though, this is a brand new robot and bares little resemblance to its original incarnation.
Eruption - Gas powered flipper that has performed well on the untelevised circuit for the last 3 years.
Foxic - Experienced team but mainly competed in antweight and featherweight. This by all accounts is an axe bot. I know nothing more.
Gabriel - This robot has made a name for itself on the untelevised circuit. It has 2 massive wheels with are very lightweight with a massice hammer that constantly slams in both directions like a pendulum when the robot moves. Watch out for this one- it's fun. However since spinners were banned on the untelevised circuit as the arenas weren't safe enough to accomodate them, it's yet to be seen how it'll hold up.
Infernal Contraption - Veterans of 2 series. Drum bot with 2 wheels and a vertical disc. I've been informed this robot has been heavily updated since its last appearance.
Ironside III - I've only seen a picture of the shell while it was being built. It looks like a full body spinner but I can't confirm that.
Kan Opener J-Spec 2x Anihilator champions returning with the latest version of their crab bot. Horizontal jaws are the norm but they've apparently taken to the interchangeable weaponry on the untelevised circuit.
Killie-Krankie - Can't find any info on this bot apart from they're new to Robot Wars.
King B Remix - Long time veterans returning with much of the same, from the looks of it. They say they've made major upgrades but the bot looks the same as King B Powerworks. Powerful pushing bot with a low centre of gravity. Also interchangeable weaponry including forklift and vertical spinning disc.
M R Speed Squared - All I know is this is a spinning bot.
Nuts - No info on this one.
PP3D - All I know is when it was first built it was a spinner. No info on robot or team.
Pulsar - Can't find any info on this bot.
Razer - Former World and UK champions. They're entering an updated version of Razer as Warhead is under an exclusive battlebots contract (Razer is better anyway). There have been internal updates but will apparently look the same and work in the same way. Devastating vertical crushing beak.
Sabretooth - Veterans of series 5 & 6. Was a drum bot with a vertical spinning disc. I have no idea how much it will resemble the original, if at all.
Shockwave - Only made 1 appearance in extreme and looked terrible. I'm assuming this is a new build.
Storm II - Controversial runners up of the last televised series. Powerful ram bot with pneumatic lifting arm.
Sweeny Todd- Not been able to find any info on this.
Terrorhurtz - Long time veterans who've been very active on the untelevised circuit. Devestating double edged axe bot. Entered with Terrorhurtz because their newest robot, Beta is under an exclusive contract with battlebots.
Terror Turtle -Veterans of series 7 returning. Turtle shell bot with horizontal spinning bar. No word on any upgrades.
The General -There was a robot of this name in the series 3 robot wars football tournament, but I doubt it's the same robot. No idea what to expect.
Thermidor II - Flipper that looks like a lobster (claws were purely decorative). Good to see them back, former grand finalists.
Thor - Veteran axe bot that has continued to improve since the show was cancelled.
Tough As Nails - Grab bot. Horizontal claws that clasp. Great pushing power once they're sunk in. Favours the pit in finishing fights.
TR2 - Heavily armoured gas powered flipper. Has won events on the untelevised circuit, including the fighting robots championship last year.
Three robots who have been linked are Iron Awe 7, Atomic and Barberous 3 but they've not been confirmed on the show so I'll not jump the gun on those.

My favorite audio book of all time, must have listened to this half a dozen times over the last 5 years. Shame its a little short but if you like this genre I would recommend a listen if you haven't heard it all ready.
great book. Hollywood spoiled the film.
I've heard this. It's good and has quite a different slant from the film.
Brilliant but short. I remember printing this book off at work before the movie came out so I could read it, then I done another for a friend, what a waste of paper!

I did loads of trips to Thorpe Park, Legoland, Chessingto, Madam Tussauds, Aquarium etc. 1 Annual Merlin card purchased with Tesco vouchers for me, plus 2 blue peter badges for the kids. We had a blast for several years.
How did u use 1 merlin pass with 2 blue peter badges?
I thought only 1 badge can be used in conjunction with one other ticket
No if you check blue peter/BBC site it will tell you which applies...some are one adult per two children...as I said earlier over the years they have changed the terms and some years back there were no restrictions as to how many adults per child/ children. If you want one for the summertime, apply early or Asaph as they take ages to arrive.

Most Merlins were great. London Aquarium thought for a while. Tussards no probe. Not Merlin ..... Ripples believe or not .... No chance of getting 2 in.
My children are now 18 and 16 on 1st April
