BBC statement on third series of 24

"We know that viewers will be disappointed that the BBC and Fox have not been able to agree a deal over the rights to the third series of 24.

"After long and protracted negotiations we were unable to agree scheduling and timescales that met the needs of both parties.

"However the BBC has bought the rights to some new and exciting shows in 2004 that give our viewers a chance to see some of the best programming from other countries - particularly Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital which promises to be a real viewing event on BBC TWO and THREE in spring 2004.

"We're also confident that the award-winning American comedy, My Wife and Kids, will be a great addition to early evenings on BBC TWO this winter."

All the BBC's digital services are now available on Freeview, the new free-to-view digital terrestrial television service, as well as on satellite and cable.

Freeview offers the BBC's eight television channels, interactive services from BBCi, as well as 11 national BBC radio networks.
