BBC Two's Winter/Spring season

Post categories:

Janice Hadlow Janice Hadlow | 18:08 UK time, Tuesday, 10 November 2009

Hello, today it gives me great pleasure as Controller of BBC Two to be able to announce the highlights of our forthcoming winter and spring season.

Today, you'll find an interview with me on the press office website, where I pick and describe several of the highlights from the upcoming schedule.

It's a great line-up that reflects what BBC Two can be at its best, with programmes that are exciting, stimulating, unafraid of being intelligent, but also never losing sight of our duty to entertain. It contains shows that span the lambing season, the history of science or the wonders of the universe; history programmes that cover subjects as diverse as our naval heritage or the recent past; explorations of literature; drama that spans the 1840s to the 1980s; star-studded comedy and cookery; in-depth looks at British family life, Barack Obama's presidential campaign and city life in the third world; as well as an offbeat history of bovine life and a couple of Christmas treats.

I think you'll be challenged, surprised and, of course, entertained by the schedule. But, above all, I hope you'll feel that BBC Two programmes give you something to think about.


  • Comment number 1.

    I have watched some of "The Story of Science" programmes but will probably not watch any more because I became so fed up with the background (and often foreground) music. It is too loud, there is too much of it, and mostly it is irrelevant to the programme, and intensely irritating. Please spend more time on the subject in hand and less on distractions.
