    The new series of Points of View starts on Sunday 22 September 2013 - 1600pm

    Share your thoughts and views about BBC Television shows with us and they may be included in the Points of View programme. Join the discussions on this board or email your views directly to the production team at pov@bbc.co.uk

    Just to give the team a general flavour of what's been happening over the summer, can I ask you to add a comment to this discussion, giving an example of one programme you enjoyed and one you didn't.

    Please explain why you've picked the two examples you have.

    If you fancy it, you might theme your suggestions, ie pick one food programme you didn't like and one you did, so we can really see what appeals to you within that particular genre.

    Feel free to add more than one Like/Don't like couple to the thread.

    Over to you!

    Here's an example from me. smiley - smiley


    Food programmes smiley - chef

    smiley - devil Saturday Kitchen - not for me.

    The cooking is a 'bit off the cuff' and I'm never convinced that the recipes would taste that good. It's all a bit slap dash in the kitchen! I'm not really interested by the omelette challenge. The host is okay, but I'm never that convinced that he's a great cook.

    smiley - ok Great British Bake off - I adore it!

    I love seeing all of the imaginative recipes. I like the competition aspect. The hosts are funny and entertaining and very endearing. I love seeing all the mistakes and how the competitors sometimes manage to pull disasters back from the brink. I find this informative, educational and very entertaining!

    Great stuff ......................

    Programmes like The Great British Railway Journeys , The Wipers Times , Robert Peston Goes Shopping , plus the terrific Would I Lie To You

    On the other hand .....................

    All the Saturday night dumbed down programmes , that are just awful .............but thankfully welcome back to Strictly

    Suggestion .....................change the style of The Voice , to include a better range of musical styles , less shouty stuff , more easy listening ballads etc

    I've just found this discussion on the "next" page so would like to bump it to the top please. I'm surprised there are not loads of posts about this, actually, so maybe it should be kept on the front page.

    I love Strictly Come Dancing. So glad it's back. Looking forward to this series. The celebrities chosen are great. Now to see what they can do!

    I cannot stand The One Show. Just as I get comfortable sitting to watch the TV when on comes Alex Jones with that voice of hers, which I find annoying to say the least. Sorry Alex. You are probably a very amiable person and likeable, but not to my ears!

    There has been some good output recently. "Wipers Times" was well worth a watch, I am enjoying "Harvest" too. I'm glad "Strictly" is back but it always signals the start of autumn/winter and Christmas. smiley - yikes

    I agree with an earlier post weekend evenings are to avoid for me, thank Gawd for the pub. smiley - ale

    I can't help thinking POV will be "same as"....they won't quote my post about suddenly shrinking the credits of "Wipers Times" when I was looking hard for the name of an actor smiley - sadface

    Great way for me to keep up to date with the latest developments in technology. Informative and entertaining and, refreshingly, assumes the audience has some prior knowledge. Wouldn't mind seeing a similar weekly programme on science.

    smiley - grr Mrs Brown's Boys

    Somebody has dragged the little loved 'Frankie' back to my memory, fortunately saying it has not been reviewed.

    But the recent 'Wipers Times' removes all doubts that the BBC can get it right.

    What I would like to see on Points of View:

    Viewers questions answered PROPERLY.
    Viewers dislikes and comments taken SERIOUSLY.
    Dreadful programmes (if you need an example That Puppet Show!) DROPPED.
    The constant complaints of the many i.e. squashed credits, loud background music, shakey camera work, the dreadful daytime/Saturday evening schedule and REPEATS on a loop, taken SERIOUSLY and dealt with once and for all!

    What I don't want to see on Points of View:

    Viewers comments read out and then dismissed.

    Wonder if the question of a dedicated sports channel will come up? I'm fed up with dratted sport spoiling the schedules. Shunt it all onto one channel. Just as long as that one channel isn't BBC4. They have some good stuff on there. I'm sure a lot of the things on BBC3 could go onto BBC1 or 2.

    You would think in these days of technology ot wouldn't be too difficult to put ALL sport one one channel instead of shunting around and disrupting regular programmes!

    I love The Great British Bakeoff and Ken Hom in China, hate the Spice Boys.
    The Burrowers was fascinating and the reruns of the superb Wild China programme that it is possible to make a fascinating wildlife documentary without some personality hogging the camera.
    I always make sure I have a good book for Saturday nights because there is absolutely nothing that interests me on any channel. Puppet Show/British Quiz thing/Casualty all desperate. I cannot believe that somebody somewhere has not switched off Casualty's life support system years ago - still it plods on, wooden acting, abysmal storylines.

    Ah - I comment on the programme message board if I want to write to PoV. Any comments are in a sea of banter but I thought PoV would see what opinions are most reflected on the boards, and choose content for the programme, along with emails, post etc.

    The idea of having a dedicated PoV board could be good because of people like me who allow ourselves to get too sidetracked by discussions about particular programmes when they are supposed be working.. smiley - yikes Who am I kidding?

    THIS SUMMER?

    I loved Top of the Lake and What Remains because they were brilliantly acted, complete, gripping dramas. I quite liked The Fall but will not be taking the bait of having to watch the first gruesome series again in order to understand the second. It should have been set up for a new story.

    I enjoyed Doctors but wish the writers would remember the programme is pre-watershed. Recent nightclub scenes were well done but shockingly violent. Deependers has lost me due to unrelenting depressing stories. I'm in that little car with Jean.


    As for comedy, Ioving Bad Education and Short Cuts - both new and refreshing but sadly disappointed with the clumsy Up the Women with it's wonderful cast and writer.

    As ever, really fed up with the great Spoiler Blight - the "on next episode" spoiler, the trailer spoiler. Some of us hate it. Some of us want to just read the credits. I Know some people don't mind, but who would really care if they weren't there...This does feel like fighting a loosing battle.

    Well I am a football/cricket fan and I agree with you about a dedicated sports channel but it will never happen at the BBC.

    They have to spend a lot more money on cookery programmes, housebuying programmes, renovation programmes and second-rate talent shows before they get to sport. Don't suppose we could get a dedicated channel for that sort of stuff could we?

    Agree with just about everything and I'd like to add that the "Coming Next" spoilers are just that, spoilers! Please stop them BBC. Wimbledon channel swapping, again, it was complained about last year, but this year was even worse.

    It appears that complaints are just brushed under the carpet, . . again and again.

    Whichever it was that has changed then I have not noticed, and yes, I do watch the programme, Peta.

    I really am only concerned with the overuse of music in programmes, as you all are very aware of, and I shall be until it is either stopped or at the very least turned down, a lot.

    So then, no improvement.

    Sorry to be blunt, but that is how I feel about this topic that we call bgm. I call it foreground music, but hey, that is only my humble opinion!

    Oooh -- it gets by goat!

    Yes I know others disagree but sports likers and haters alike would benefit from a 'sport only' BBC channel and I think the BBC should seriously consider this.

    Sports likers complain when their sports are shifted from one channel to the next. Want more sport etc.

    Sports haters are fed up when regular programmes are disrupted and cancelled (especially when for example) Wimbledon overuns etc.

    We would all be happier if sport was on one channel.

    It isn't about whether people agree or disagree about the BBC having a sports channel, it is that the BBC cannot have a sports channel.

    Firstly: they wouldn't get permission
    Secondly: they don't have enough sport to fill it
    Thirdly: they cannot show old clips when they have nothing to show as they don't have the rights.
    Forthly: they don't have the budget
    Fifthly: Why only a sports channel? Why not a cookery channel ( there is far more cookery on the BBC than sport).


    It is never going to happen.

    I don't want to side-track this discussion into another debate about BGM ( - ongoing discussion here please feel free to join if you have views comments www.bbc.co.uk/dna/mb... )

    But I wondered, did you see that programme on super-tasters lately?

    Check it out here www.bbc.co.uk/scienc...

    I wondered if you're somehow a super hearing person? Perhaps there's a rational explanation for your sensitivity to sound? It's a thought!

    My good/bad pair contribution (comedy):

    Good - 'Family Tree' - subtle humour and observations of quirkiness;

    Bad - 'Big School' - hopelessly exaggerated characters don't work in an everyday setting imo.



    On a general note - good is any wildlife programme. The Beeb excels at these. Other channels seem to produce little, and what there is tends to be either cute and trivial or over-dramatised (with the exception of David Attenborough's series on Sky).

    In particular since POV was last around I have enjoyed 'Hebrides - Islands on the Edge' 'The Burrowers' 'Britain's Big Wildlife Revival', 'Iolo's Great Welsh Parks', 'Summer of Wildlife' red button content on butterflies and moths, 'Operation Snow Tiger', 'What's Killing Our Bees', 'Ultimate Swarms', 'Meet the Monkeys', 'The Mating Game', 'Springwatch Guide to Butterflies and Moths', 'Sri Lanka - Elephant Island' and I'm not counting repeats such as 'Nature's Microworlds' - have I missed any? And tonight there's a new David Attenborough.

    History series pretty good too - 'The White Queen', 'King Alfred and the Anglo Saxons', 'Who Were the Greeks', 'Ancient Greece: the Greatest Show on Earth', 'Caligula with Mary Beard'.

    A shame about Up the Women - despite the cast and writer, it just seemed like Dinnerladies in the 19th century for me. Could it have been due to outside interference in getting it to fruition?

    Yes Peta, alot of people myself included love music.
    However, we don't love it drowning out the commentary in a programme which is still happening and that is why so many viewers are fed up that producers of programmes are still not listening to us viewers or responding!

    No Peta, I do not have super-sensitive hearing! The very thought! smiley - yikes

    It is the "overuse" of music in programmes which I would like to have stopped. Stop the overuse of it. Less use of it would mean that people will still be able to enjoy the music which is still played. So long as it - is - music and not just a load of noise over narration, which is the nub of all my concerns. Stop the noise! Oops! Sorry for going on.

    POV New Series This Sunday! Yes, I have set my PVR for the whole series. I will take note of any changes which may come about as a result of viewers comments.

    Doubt SCD will be on it's not started yet  But they may use the opportunity of the launch show to remind us that it is coming.....

    Yes, they're fond of using a couple of seconds of viewer comment as an excuse to introduce a couple of minutes of programme plugging -

    I expect they will have listened to, read and ignored the comments about viewers' video clips being a waste of time?
