>The BBC is considering the case for bringing back BBC Three as a regular TV channel, four years after it was taken off air and moved online. The youth channel, which commissioned hits like Normal People and Fleabag, will also have its budget doubled.

>It left linear TV in 2016 to save £30m, and because the corporation said young people were watching more shows online. The BBC now says it is "considering the case" for returning the channel to "linear television". A BBC spokesman said "we'd be wrong not to back a service that is doing better than anyone could have ever conceived". The turnaround will be formally announced as part of the BBC's annual plan on Wednesday, but there was no news about the fate of BBC Four, which has been rumoured for the axe.


There's lots of rumours at the moment that BBC Four will either become a repeats channel or be hived off into some international market channel. I guess the focus of the BBC these days is producing buying shit that nobody will watch.

How much does the Corporation make from its global wing then? Selling syndication rights to things like Doctor Who and Clarkson-era silly Top Gear must be worth a fair bit and easily cover the cost of cheap quiz shows that have been a thing for 20 odd years. If there's going to be any review of funding, what could reasonably be assumed if the Corporation introduces a digital only license? I can think of a fair few negatives, mostly privacy issues and the associated costs of administrating and maintaining whatever system is decided on.

It's a bit late now, I'll more than likely be back when it isn't dark.

I think my relationship with my ex started to fail when we ran out of TAS TNG ENT and DS9 to watch and moved on to VOY. She doesn't like when yell at TV shows and I yelled a lot during VOY, and STD.

Maybe things would be different if we had picked TOS instead, but that was going to be the reward for making it through VOY, I guess it would have been borrowed time, watching both Voyager and Picard would have ruined it eventually.

A new New Trek has been announced: https://intl.startrek.com/news/star-trek-strange-new-worlds-anson-mount-rebecca-romijn-ethan-peck-cbs-all-access

The premise is ST:D Pine and Spock go off exploring, because "these iconic characters have a deep history in Star Trek canon," which may be true for Spock, but Pine? Pine was just the guy whose face got melted in the pilot and couldn't be bothered doing morse code.

Can you blame me for being cynical if Kurtzmann is still at the helm with some of the same team who worked with him on Picard? ST:D and ST:P were atrocious to the point they'd practically wink at the camera and hint there was something original and Trekky about the plot just to rub it in, so I aren't really holding my breath they'd be able to actually make a good episodic series.

Pike was the captain in the pilot and survived the episode unharmed. Nobody here is watching this rubbish anymore and you will notice from the lack of Star Wars threads that it's not the place to circlejerk endlessly.

I'd even hazard that 'online discussion' is what keeps all this going. There's no other way to explain it.

It was alright.

Ideally they need to end it.
Do a proper final episode or two to resolve the overarching story of getting home and finding Kochanski etc, before one of them cops it. I know it's essentially devolved into a no continuity series of sketches now, but it did have a plot in the beginning.

All of the essential plot points built over the first two series were largely forgotten after the series three "reboot"*.

* Yes I know it wasn't a reboot per se but the tone of the show changed completely and a lot of previous plot (i.e. turning around and going back to earth) was pushed to the back burner in and replaced with general space shenanigans; even the series two cliff-hanger that would have taken us deeper into the plot established back in "Future Echoes" was resolved off screen.

I don't know, the series' overall arc calls into question the necessity of its premise. Lister has already lived a full and meaningful life, and fathered and mothered children, including himself. Earth is probably barren of humanity. Going back to his 23rd century might be a nice retirement option for him, but I think his personal arc is to come to terms with being the last living human in his universe, rather than changing that fate for himself.

23112 (the film probably didn't look like this pic)
There was this animated film i saw years ago with these black humanoid figures that disguised themselves as humans. The only real difference between the two was the aliens had heads where their crotches should be and genitals where their heads should be, and they spat into eachothers mouths as a greeting. The main character is disgusted by this and finds his society being taken over by these creatures, and at the end he finds out his family are all aliens and kills them, only to find his own head fall off and reveal the genitals beneath.

The animation was quite simple with few colours - i particularly remember the black figures and dark orange backgrounds.

I'm sure it was called Zogs and narrated by Bill Bailey but i can't find anything on google nor Bill Bailey's listed bodies of work.

I must have caught it late one night on regular british TV.

Does anyone remember this film?

They'll be the death of us yet, anyway. Their poor have a truly unfortunate habit of consuming antibiotic pills individually (as in, one at a time, not a full treatment), failing to kill whatever bacteriological infection they were suffering from, and then shitting where they walk, eventually introducing the now-resistant bacterial strain into the food chain. This is a slow but methodical way to create antibiotic immunity in harmful bacteria, and has been instrumental in wiping out the usefulness of many of the most effective antibiotics.

We're pretty much the only country in the world that effectively limits anti-biotic prescriptions. And even then, we undo a lot of that hard work by putting anti-biotics in animal feed and so on.

Like I said a while ago, never mind covid, it's going to be antibiotic resistance that will get us to the end. Look at the graph of global population over the 20th century, and you'll notice we'd hit the peak up until antibiotics were made widely available.

Got anything to back that up? I get that we regulate the stronger stuff pretty effectively but there's still big problems with over-prescribing penicillin.

Note an actual experience of mine a few years back:
GP: "Yes that cyst on your neck is infected, I'll give you some antibiotics."
Me: "Can you cut it out please so it doesn't keep getting infected again in future?"
GP: "No, it's just cosmetic."

Also the many many cases of tonsillitis which could be caused by a viral infection such as glandular fever, but the doctors will rather just prescribe antibiotics first instead of screening.

I don't have any figures, but: Something like 99% of organisms are resistant to penicillin, amoxicillin and derivatives already, so it really don't matter. You can prescribe that while having a swab sent off to the lab to rule out other sources of infection.

When a doctor sends a swab from an infected would or tonsilitis or whatever for testing, it's usually not really to see if/how it's infected. They usually already know that because the vast majority of infections your average person gets are mundade and entirely commonplace. What they're really sending it off for is to see which antibiotics the infection is sensitive and resistant to.

There's then first, second and third line antibiotics which the consultant microbiologist selectively authorises. When the doctor gets the report back from the lab it only includes the first line, the others are censored so some silly bugger doesn't go giving out gentamicin for a chest infection without specific authorisation.

I had a powerful dislike of the Mighty Boosh when I was younger (and I'm sure I must have typed a bunch of angry shite here about it at least once back around the dawn of time) but in retrospect it was just a bunch of silly student bollocks, hardly worth getting worked up over. I think part of it was that Noel Fielding somehow looked a bit too old to be fannying around with shows (and hair) like that, he's probably not a bad bloke in reality but if it turned out he was a nonce all along I wouldn't be too shocked.

I really enjoyed this film and it's growing on me more and more since I saw it last week. I'm perfectly happy to hear people slate things I enjoy, but all the negative things I see people saying about it are just wrong opinions. I was totally focused on it throughout and the final half an hour might have been my favourite part of the whole film. Youngest De Niro looks bad, but other than that the youngification didn't bother me because it was a necessity for this kind of story (it's not the same as resurrecting Peter Cushing like in that God awful Rogue One film). A story which I don't think is getting enough credit for how well it weaves together all the different eras it takes place it.

That fish conversation's going to baffle people from now until the heat death of the Universe, at least it has me.
