Actually the last few months it has picked its ideas up a bit - finally got live cricket back on real TV during the Aussie matches, but I see they're not covering the current tour though.
But the original prime was all excellent British comedies, documentaries and dramas. It sold to the Aussies and all we got for two years was crap Aussie shows that were all soaps, renovation shows, game shows (I occasionally watch 'Who Wants To Be A Dill-on-Air' just to see how thick most people are!!) and rubbish repeats from the olden days.
I agree their sports coverage is ok if you are into sport. And they have had a few British dramas and docos lately too. But it pales by comparison in that respect. I used to love watching Time Team and Meet The Ancestors too. We don't get them on any channel now, and TT sometimes covers aviation archeology.
