I was not going to blog about either bbc three (my blog) or Excluded: Kicked Out of School as its closing down and transferring much of the funding to channels that don’t need it or have no intention of showing the content or ideas that three has produced.

ritaAnyhow three has become a strange place waiting for switch off and something like a dumping ground for crap sports (which i hate) and the open university programming of which excluded is part of.  Hence the strays here are the sports and the ou.

I do recommend this ou documentary but it is not bbc three which is being destroyed in order to fund some horrid costume drama.  As I do not watch much television but its galling that the challenging content will never be seen on those mainstream channels.
