    Default Bbc 4

    There are some good programmes on BBC4 to watch last night for 2 half hours.Travelling from North to South New Zealand islands by rail boat and road.Its one of those programmes where there is no narrator only sounds you here are trains on track going along etc.The scenery from train was so stunning what a beautiful country NZ is.You have to be quick to read the clips that come up about the journey.Have seem a few programmes like this once in Lapland the Huskies going through the snow pulling the sledges,a Yorkshire dale trip on the buses.Also a barge trip on the canals going through lock gates.It may not be everybody's cup of tea but I found watching these were really relaxing before going to bed.

    There are some good BBC 4 programmes on - over Christmas I saw the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures on there like I do every year.

    I used to think that BBC 4 was the Guardian reader's channel because of the programmes being more highbrow than BBC 2, but it can be welcoming, and I am glad that it was BBC 3 that got the push from the Sky Digital platform rather than BBC 4.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    Indeed, i enjoy the non mainstream biographies of many of the musicians featured on BBC4 , and the channel will happily show programmes from all genres of music from classical to rock and everything inbetween

    When it was launched in 2003 I think, they had that slogan "everyone needs a place to think" or something, and it did make me think that it was a TV channel equivalent of reading The Guardian.

    Don't forget that Only Connect started out on BBC 4 as well - great quiz, but Victoria Coren-Mitchell does feel Guardian-esque in her gambits.
