We just got an old ITV digital box off a mate, so we now have Freeview Digital at zero cost.

I love 'UK History' - every evening you are guaranteed a docu on Panzers, the Luftwaffe or the invasion of Russia.
Magic.

Oh & '6 Music' is cracking too.

But that's Channel 5 without the baseball or soft porn!

Just heard 'Dawsons Creek' is to finish at the end of this series.
Gutted.
No more leering at Katie Holmes on a Sunday lunchtime..

Buy a copy of THE GIFT, it has a better Katie Holmes leer factor than DC anyway, with the added benefit of not starring that tombstone-faced gonk who plays Dawson.

The history channel no longer seems to do endless reshowings of "The Occult History of The Third Reich", which is a shame.

Nazis, porn and the occult. I can't think of any other program content a TV channel needs.

"Nazis, porn and the occult. I can't think of any other program content a TV channel needs."

How about a gameshow involving mindless violence?

How about Takashi's Castle. Starring the legendry "Beat" Takashi Kitano driving around in a dogem shooting lazers.

Airing nightly (I think) on Challenge TV around midnight.

i've found myself getting slowly addicted to such tosh as 'sex on the beach' and 'club reps' just to cringe at how us brits behave abroad... this is tempered slightly by the amount of naked ladyflesh on view

however, i'm seriously looking forward to 'second coming' this sunday
you think this isn't me? that's so sweet...

Not sure we've ever combined all three...

Guess you'll just have to pick up a copy of Legend of the Overfiend...

...or Ilsa, She-Wolf of the SS and a pack of Tarot Cards...

...or Raiders of the Lost Ark and a copy of Razzle...

Possibilities. Endless.
