Clear as mud. I don't watch any BBC tv. My tv comes from torrents 8)
Why do I need a TV Licence? (Link to the website, below) A TV Licence is a legal permission to install or use television receiving equipment to watch or record television programmes as they are being shown on TV or live on an online TV service, and to download or watch BBC programmes on demand, including catch up TV, on BBC iPlayer. This could be on any device, including TVs, desktop computers, laptops, mobile phones, tablets, games consoles, digital boxes, DVD, Blu-ray and VHS recorders. This applies regardless of which television channels a person receives or how those channels are received. The licence fee is not a payment for BBC services (or any other television service), although licence fee revenue is used to fund the BBC. The requirement to hold a TV Licence and to pay a fee for it is mandated by law under the Communications Act 2003 and Communications (Television Licensing) Regulations 2004 (as amended). It is an offence to watch or record television programmes as they are being shown on any channel and on any broadcast platform (terrestrial, satellite, cable and the internet) or download or watch BBC programmes on demand, including catch up TV, on BBC iPlayer without a valid TV Licence. Section 363 of the Communications Act 2003 makes it an offence to install or use a television receiver to watch or record any television programmes as they’re being shown on television without a TV Licence. Section 365 of that Act requires that a person to whom a TV Licence is issued must pay a fee to the BBC. The nature and amount of this fee is set out in the Communications (Television Licensing) Regulations 2004 (as amended). Since 1991, the BBC, in its role as the relevant licensing authority, has been responsible for collecting and enforcing the TV Licence fee. The BBC contracts companies to do this work under the BBC trade mark ‘TV Licensing’. The BBC (and contractors acting on its behalf) must comply with the law in collecting and enforcing the licence fee. The BBC Charter further requires that these arrangements be appropriate, proportionate and efficient. https://www.tvlicensing.co.uk/about/foi-legal-framework-AB16
I thought you have to have a tv licence to download tv shows and then watch on your tv at home. So confused with tv licensing, which is a rip off anyway.
I think that should be:- Thanks guys for pointing out the misleading information that I included in the listing, I have now edited the listing and removed the errors. ;)

Thanks for posting. I have freesat so don't get Dave. I've watched the first two episodes so far on it. Overall I think the new series is pretty good. Far better than back to earth and glad to see they are back on red dwarf!
Dragged a couple of jokes on for to long, but still a great program... and infinitely better than the one off! Great find for catch up!
Great find, missing them myself. Glad to see Red Dwarf back on the airwaves!
Glad it's been helpful to everyone, if this is the 2nd worst in the series I'm looking forward to the rest if the series even more.
Agreed - and according to the fan site, that was the second worst episode of this series!

2 for 1 comedy tickets @ UKTV
2 for 1 comedy tickets with Dave and Absolute Radio at clubs all over the country, including Highlight in Camden.
Good point... I got it in an e-mail yesterday, I assumed that when you went to book it would give you the 2 for 1 deal but it doesn't appear to. Hmmm, sorry, rubbish first deal post!
I can see it on the website where it says 2-4-1..... but I cant find the list of venues that are included in this offer or a code to put in if it's needed? I'm obviously doing something wrong.... either that or this expired ages ago and the webpage never got taken down.

We Should all get a Refund every time we have to watch Repeats, Freeview is all Repeats and the satelite and cable companies and all others try to make us think we are getting something free when they are all old programmes.
....really? ....other than scrolling down and seeing a NEW channel on your menu/available channels and see one that you couldnt get before.......? As per hitchhikers Guide to the galaxy ".....the trick is to bang the stones together boys...." :(
Cool. Shame all the programs are really OLD though.
Thanks, you don't get much from Branson, there again we did all pay the BBC to make these shows and now they want you to pay again and watch their bl00dy adverts.

Voted hot , thanks for the link ....ignore the naysayers who can afford to shop at Waitrose --drizzling truffle oil on their baked beans.
Yes one pot meals are great, I wish there were more recipes for them, to encourage kids and teens to cook, as theyre simple but can be very hearty and tasty, with little mess. The gas as you say, is a consideration, given the fuel prices. Just today I got a notice that my monthly fuel direct debit is up by £18, and I am careful too. My electric oven will probably be used even less now, as I try to find more ways to microwave and use my slow cooker.
I can honestly say that never in my life have I made beans on toast. I hate baked beans and wouldnt feed that to my family either. I have no problem with others eating it though. You have made massive assumptions here, just because I said that roasting two duck legs in an oven for three hours is a waste of electricity or gas, which it is. Throwing a duck leg into an oven takes NO effort, and nor does a lot of REAL cooking. I also have an allergy to MSG, and some other chemicals, so I always cook from scratch, and never used processed foods where possible. Tonight I made a small pork roast with stuffing, roast potatoes, peas and glazed carrots. All cooked from scratch, including the stuffing. The oven was used properly and fully. Just an example for you, since your brain can't see there is a middle road between two duck legs for three hours, and a can of beans and a loaf. :) I am on a very tight budget and am always delighted to find good cheap recipes, I just didnt think the ones on that site were ever really intended as budget ones.
Sorry cold. its recipes!
Wow a free website with free recipes.. How ever did you find it?
