BBC HD Summer Fixtures
Yes - I share the frustration on The Open this year.
I keep asking the question and getting the same answer from the various parties involved, so it is safe to confirm to you that it will be in HD starting from next year.
But I also want to bring you news of programmes coming to BBC HD rather sooner.
Knowing the enjoyment that many of you get from the US series Heroes, which we've shown over three series now together with BBC Two, we're going to be offering those of you who didn't have HD at the time - or just hadn't caught up with the programme - another chance to watch series one of Heroes on Saturday nights. We'll be running a double bill of Heroes at 11.30 every weekend, starting with this, ahead of the start of series 4 (again on BBC Two and BBC HD) which should be in October.
Other summer fixtures include our Music Festival season with sets from across the country on Thursday nights at 10.30. The range will be pretty broad and while I'm sure not to everyone's taste, I hope you'll find something in there to enjoy. We've also got Friday night films, running at 10.30, through to the Autumn when Jonathan Ross will be back for another series.
If you are going away this summer, I hope the separation from your HD set won't be too painful - and there's always BBC iPlayer. And for those of you that are at home I do hope you'll sample what we have to offer.
