BBC Four to investigate The Private Lives Of The Medieval Kings

Post by sweetpotatoboy » Sun November 27th, 2011, 7:14 pm

This documentary series could be good. BBC4 is so good these days.

All the publicity from the summer has said "in the autumn" and autumn has come and almost gone. But I saw some reference to it being broadcast in January, so I hope it will be and look forward to it.

I agree BBC4 is such a good channel. About the only one worth watching at the moment.

I wonder if this will eventually air on BBC America, but with my luck I'll probably miss it :P

I've never noticed shows like this on BBC America. Most of the schedule seems to be devoted to Gordon Ramsay's shows. I do see that The Tudors is on. Perhaps I will DVR it and have fun yelling at the TV because of all the mistakes!

Yes, thank goodness for that, but then I'd have to keep an eye out for it and remember to do so!

Sounds excellent. I agree that BBC 4 is a jewel.

This is so frustrating. I read about it in the BBC History Magazine about a month ago but it never mentioned a date/time. When I googled it, all I could find was this press release which still doesn't give me a date/time. What is the point of advertising something but not telling people WHEN they can catch it? Hopefully this topic will keep me updated because otherwise, I would have completely forgotten about it and probably missed it.

Yep I noticed in the magazine too, and have been checking to see if there is a date for airing. They did the same with with something else I was keen to see....
obviously the various arms of the BBC don't keep each other informed....
