New Discussions - please ensure that the title of your discussion includes the name of the programme you wish to discuss, that way other people can find them by searching.
This board is run by the BBC Points of View programme team, so please stay on the topic of BBC TV programmes, as that helps us to find your comments and include them in the programme when it is on air.
The messageboard does not host discussions about BBC News, BBC Sport or sporting events, BBC radio shows or BBC radio presenters or politics and current affairs.
*Please search for an existing discussion on a programme* using the search box on the right-hand side of the page - check there first so you can see if other people are already talking about the programme that you'd like to discuss, if so
*please join the existing discussion*. Don't start a new discussion about a programme, if one already exists.
If you'd like to talk about any of the BBCs Sports programmes, including Match of the Day and F1, please post to the general BBC Sports Programming discussion, here
If you'd like to talk about the BBC in general, please use the BBC topic www.bbc.co.uk/dna/mb... There's a permanent link to The BBC topic on the left-hand side of the board.
Volume control - do you think background music is too loud? This post explains a bit about sound balancing www.bbc.co.uk/dna/mb... Many newer TVs have a feature in the audio menu section called a "sound balancer" or something similar depending on your TV.
if you have a look at the manual for your TV you might find that you have settings to increase or decrease background sound, or that work better for the spoken word or for music programmes, you can change them to suit the programme you are listening to, so perhaps give that a go?
If you'd like to talk about programmes that are on other channels, please post to the Non-BBC TV Programmes discussion.

Please join an existing discussion whenever possible.
That makes it easier for the posters to the board, the board hosts 'Peta' and 'Lee' and the production team to find and join in discussions about programmes.
Individual one-off posts are more easily overlooked and ignored.
The board host and regular posters may post a link to direct you to a pre-existing discussion about a programme.
They are being helpful - so please be kind and polite to them.
