BBC launching five new HD channels

BBC logoHere is some great news, if like myself you love free HD channels. From 2014, BBC Three, BBC Four, CBBC, CBeebies and BBC News will all be distributed in HD on Freesat, Freeview and YouView. It will also be made available to other platform operators, including cable companies.

Meaning by the time you add BBC1 and BBC 2 HD. The BBC will have a total of 7 HD channels! Leaving only BBC Parliament in SD.

Out of all these new HD channels, I am looking forward to BBC News HD the most. Since other than BBC1 and BBC2 HD, it’s the BBC channel, I watch the most.

The very last BBC News broadcast from Television Centre

Many of you, may have never even have heard of Television Centre. It’s been the headquarters of BBC Television. Officially opened on 29 June 1960, it is one of the most readily recognisable facilities of its type having appeared as the backdrop for many BBC programmes.

So myself, like many others in the UK have growing up watching TV shows from Television Centre. Including Blue Peter, Children in Need, CBBC from ‘the Broom Cupboard’ and many others.

Below Simon McCoy and Sophie Long at the close of the last BBC News broadcast from Television Centre marking an end to over 45 years of broadcasting from the iconic site.

Gay couple ‘removed from Soho pub for kissing’

I am sure you will have heard this story by now. I first heard about it on twitter.  A Gay couple were asked to leave a pub in Soho for kissing. Can’t believe that things like this still happen and in what is London’s gay area 2. It’s been all over the news here in the UK.

The Metropolitan Police are investigating the incident. I really hope that person that told them 2 leave, loses his job. Also the pub should be fined or even better closed down.

Read about it on the BBC New website.
