Technical shows from TV

Hi All
Technical shows that should be brort back to TV
I would like to see [.tv] back on with Chips With Everything, Buyers Guide & MasterClass, the best technical show I have ever seen on TV, it was better than Click on the BBC, Click is a bit of a rip-off it has a number of things from Chips With Everything, Buyers Guide & MasterClass watt was on [.tv] from British Sky Broadcasting.  With the Government saying they want everyone to have access to a computer that is online, a tv channel dedicated to technology surtenly would help educate people quicker.  You never know, could they help, fund, advertise or supply some educational programming?
From the BBC I would like to see Tomorrows World brort back.  The world we live in is changing so fast we need technical shows like Tomorrows World & .tv to keep up with the changing world!
Watt do you think?

not being a Sky viewer, cant comment on those programs, but did eventually find where Click was, didn't even know that existed. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/click_online/7243584.stm

Re: Technical shows that should be brort back

Is there a technical show that you would like to see back on air?
Or a technical show that you would like to see off air?

Re: Technical shows from TV

I'm gonna vote for [.tv] and everything that was on there, particularly the lovely Kate Russell from Chips with Everything - she's on Click far too little.
I remember sending Sky an annoyed from Wales type email when [.tv] finished - they told me that it was a specialist channel that nobody was watching - I think this thread proves them wrong, there were at least four of us.......

Re: Technical shows from TV

Have you seen on Sky Documentary channels? "How it's made" and "How it works" quite lightweight stuff, but quite good fun. Some of the early BBC "Horizons" could be excellent, One of my prized possessions is a DVD burn from a VHS recording of a Cable TV programme called "Twang, Bang, Kerang" which charted the history of the electric guitar, made in 1982 and no longer available, which was produced by the Channel 4 equivalent of Horizon, the name of which escapes me something like Equas (without playing the disk) but was the equal of Horizon.
Yep, I vote for Tomorrows World as well, as long as it's presented by Raymond Baxter, went a bit downhill after he retired.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Technical shows from TV

Another vote for Tomorrow's World - brilliant - especially when it was live and things went wrong!
