    20 years ago Bravo was like that, & Granada Plus had a lot of ITV oldies.

    ITV4 is probably the nearest at the moment.

    All the old ITC series and perhaps some early stuff like Robin Hood and the rest of the old swashbuckler shows from back then, i guess the problem comes down to copyrights and legal stuff.
    A few channels i checkout from time to time thru Sky are FOTV, SHOWBIZ TV, TALKING PICTURES TV, INFO TV, just scroll down the epg and some little treasures might appear.
    Often thought ITV could use its huge archive for a late night 1.00am to 5.00am slot to air these oldies instead of the gaming show, repeats of jeremy kyle and nightscreen.
    btw if you have a smart tv Youtube have nearly everything you want full episodes ad' free.

    When ITV first went 24 hours they did show some oldies at night, & in the 1990s the BBC bought a load of them.

    I'm guessing as the original contracts were made before repeats became a common thing all the actors are able to claim a fair amount of royalties, which limits the amount they can be shown.

    We need a channel dedicated solely to TOTP
    it is shown on bbc4 but due to Yewtree, it's currently off air and certain shows don't get aired.

    They really need to just edit out ALL the presenters and just show the music

    Reckon most of the really old shows on the channels i mentioned are in the public domain so are cheap to air, like Dragnet, Cisco kid, Dustys trail,some still are entertaining i like One step beyond, kinda like Twilight Zone.
    Only problem watching these old progs' is they can never live up to how you fondly remember them so what i tend to do is see the opening credits/theme music and leave it at that.
