It will will also be available on YouView (BT, TalkTalk, Plusnet TV) and EE TV homes on channel 114, subject to the Freeview coverage restrictions.
No idea how I missed this! But tonight at 9:00pm sees the first episode of the brand new TV documentary series from Channel 5.
The series follows railway workers on the Great Western Mainline against the background of the largest modernisation on the route in generations.
There are also major incidents, huge sporting events, as well as the day-to-day challenges of running one of Britain’s busiest stations.

Got to say I am loving the extra HD channels that I can now watch via my Freeview HD tv and YouView box. Out of CBeebies HD, BBC FOUR HD, BBC NEWS HD, Al Jazeera English HD and Community Channel HD. I have a feeling I will watch BBC NEWS HD the most.

Maybe I need to get out more. But I can’t wait till this Tuesday (25th March 2014), when my local transmitter starts broadcasting more Freeview HD channels :).
I can look forward to getting, CBeebies HD, BBC FOUR HD, BBC NEWS HD, Al Jazeera English HD and Community Channel HD.
