    Torchwood on BBC1 or 2? Views: 1515
     Wednesday, July 26 2006 @ 08:42 AM EDT
    Does anyone know if this show will ever be shown on one of the regular channels?

    Torchwood will run on BBC3 first but like other shows I suspect it will be runa gain at a later date on BBC1. I cannot see that it would ever be run on BBC2.

    Excuse my ignorance, but what are the differences between BBC1 BBC2 and BBC3? Do they show different themed shows on each channel?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    BBC1 and BBC2 are terrestrial (aka broadcast, aka over the air channels) television channels of the BBC in the UK.

    FYI with local variations there are five terrestrial television channels in the UK (BBC1, BBC2, ITV, Channel 4 and Five).

    BBC3 is a digital channel that was started in 2003. It is only avaialble via a special set-top box, satellite or cable. Although satellite and cable have made huge inroads in the last 15 years in the UK neither are as established or common as they are in North America.

    The different channels do not have a theme so much as a style, particularly BBC1 and BBC2. BBC3 has a varied schedule of original shows, movies, repeats of BBC1 shows and sometimes previews shows that might later be seen on BBC1. They start broadcast each evening at 7:00pm.

    Thanks, one of those questions I've always been meaning to ask, but had never gotten around to.

    The first series of Little Britain was shown on BBC3 and then BBC2. The second series was shown on BBC3 and then on BBC1. Little Britain was definitely more of a BBC2 style show but did so well that the second series received that (censored btw) BBC1 repeat. The third series then went out direct on BBC1. It was definitely not your usual BBC1 style show.

    Other shows like Casanova have been shown on BBC3 and then moved up to BBC1 as well.

    Actually, to be truly pedantic the first episode of Little Britain was on Radio Four as it was a radio comedy before moving to BBC3. It went to BBC3 first as they took the gamble to commission a TV series from it. Big Grin

    Red Dwarf also had its roots in radio as did Hitchhiker's...

    Captain Jack sure is cute, if only he had a nice accent.

    If Worzel Gummidge and the Third Doctor had a fist fight - who would win?
