Well that is true... Of course Blurays... dvd's .. Games... Netflix... Amazon prime video. None of those things require a TV licence. So I'm not sure what relevance it has to what I was saying. Unless of course someone charges you for looking out of some windows and not others?

But I agree: The huge mark-up for weekly payment is very sh1tty behaviour.

TheOnlyRick

The problem is that you *do* pay for the other free channels as well. When McDonald's pays ITV £5m for some broadcast time, how do you think they recoup the costs? By putting the cost of their burgers up.

Roger_Irrelevant

The "TV Licencing" is outsourced to Capita (aka CRAPITA). You don't have to let them in and can tell them to get off your property. They send random threatening letters/spam (with red text no less!) so one month it might be.. "We are in the final stages of our investigation". (y) Then next month it will be.. "We are opening an official investigation" (cheeky) Then next month.. "Will you be in on 20 December?" (excited) Do a YouTube search for "TV Licencing Goon" for a few laughs.

Murielson

Agreed

SmooV

Save your energy for more positive things. Some people are not worth the time! Personally I thought this film was incredible. A real taste of the life and personalities of a just a few people and their real struggles. It really gave you a sense of what it was like to go from everyday life to suddenly being on a new adventure and the harsh reality of that adventure mixed in with some real underlying human elements on both sides. I thought it did an amazing job to highlight the perils and pointlessness of war. Of course not pointless when you have no option, but if nothing else it really shows that war should be avoided at all costs.

Thanks for sharing a positive story, there’s a lot of negativity on the thread.

HELEN169C

My daughter drew a picture of the solar system with a letter explaining about her picture and my son wrote a short story and a cover letter about it and why he would like a badge and they both got sent one. Great activity for the kids and benefit of the free entries. They were really happy when they got the badges and took them to school to show in Friday assembly :)

myusernamehasgone234

Totally agree that kids tv is poor these days but it’s bound to be with so many hours to fill. They seem to have gone down the quantity rather than quality route. There are some decent drama shows kicking about

Sid.Harper

I was thinking your thoughts the other day. Tripe on the BBC for kids - I was also chuffed when I found the setting to remove BBC minute from my Alexa flash briefing.

Gentle_Giant

From a quick look at what is on YT, the blame lies in them going down market, following the ITV tat; some of the pieces I have seen belong on trash US YT channels, Jelly Bean challenge?? Please point out the educational/aspirational value of that. The show now seems to be pitched at trash teen level, and not at the 8-12 demographic that used to be its core audience, and parts of what used to make it special have been farmed off into separate shows like "My Family" and "Do You Know"

Good for you. I hate it when people who have not helped the people being abused suddenly spring into activity at this point and insist that attendance and flowers are a must. Attendance and flowers and indeed the interference of these now-interferers would have been of some use in the past, during the abuse.

tafkas: Quite an impressive rant considering Jurassic Park was released as a PG in 1993, and the 12A certificate was first used for The Bourne Identity in 2002. Well you learn something every day, always thought 12A had come about because of jurassic park, well I still think 12A is a load of crap, and as I remember it Spielberg did put pressure on the BBFC to release it as a PG.

American free TV programs are not great. All the quality programs that come over here are usually on the pay channels over there.

There is free digital HD freeview in the US since 2009 but you can also get a satellite dish and get even more free US channels and cheaper than cable subscriptions. Obviously funded by adverts.

splender

6.9 is always very good approximately, if you understands how IMDB ratings work. The 1000th all time top film as voted by viewers has a rating of 7.3. If you call these arbitrarily best or outstandibg for 1000 best films ever as voted on IMDB. This is 6.9, which seems to be very good. There are nearly half a million movies on the IMDB database, in case you didn't know what 1000th means with 7.3 rating. Or, simply, ask yourself in a 180 degree flip of your question:- Since when can you call a 6.9 rating not a 'very good'?

I must admit that I use the download by PID route which is more long winded but sidesteps issues with programme searches etc. PID is easily obtained from going to the programme you want in iplayer (web) and looking in the web address.

Me too not a fan personally, although Tom Baker was brilliant - but the weeping angels were superb. Chris Ecclestone episode where he meets the last Dalek was a perfect example of the bloke playing the Doctor being superb, the bloke doing dalek voice being good, and the rest more wooden than a shed.

Agreed generally. Usually these films, in particular those featuring downhill skiing are highly self indulgent and feature the worst sort of headbanging music and Tibetan pipes and drums! For instance 'Into the mind' and 'All I can'

gholt

I'm glad some people have enjoyed watching this film. Posted this deal as this is a film (not a program) and to make people aware it is available on the i Player (usual in my experience for films and easily missed). As for licence fee's meaning its not "free": the vast majority of people have a TV licence so I'm just advising how to get the maximum out of it. That said a crazy number of people will pay a lot more and have Sky or a similar subscription service making the licence fee seem a pittance!
