I just wondered why dave are making the specials and not the Beeb
BBC Is invoved, Dave in collaboration with BBC Worldwide invested in the special's.
It's being screened on Dave as part of an effort to screen more original programming than just repeats.
BBC worldwide will also screen it although in countries outside the UK.
And I thought it was because Lister had the same first name.
'The BBC' and 'BBC Worldwide' aren't really the same thing. It's fair to say that 'the Beeb' aren't involved, really.
I think Dave have made a right steal to be honest BBC will regret it later no doubt
The BBC no longer wanted to make it. Dave really, really did.
Apparently the BBC aren't interested in us Red Dwarf fans any more
Nice to see a Freeview station forging into producing original stuff. Hope it gives some of the old crony stations a kick up the rear. Before anyone says, I know Red Dwarf isn't original original, and that we should be thankful that the BBC took a risk on it in the first place.
The BBC aren't interested in Red Dwarf any more, yet they still invest money into utter rubbish like '2 Pints' and they're even bringing back Rab C. Nesbitt. Yet they won't show love to one of BBC TWO's biggest ever shows? I have half a mind to cancel my licence fee in protest!
"The BBC are no longer interested in the audience 'Red Dwarf' used to attract"
if there is a series 9. do you think it will be on dave
Maybe in protest we should stop watching the BBC for a while causing their ratings to fall.
Considering the sheer volume of people who watch the BBC it wouldn't make much of an impression.
Besides, now Dave have taken the baton as it were, I think they should be given a chance to reap the benefits.
From a ratings perspective, it would still be great for RD to return to one of the mainstream channels eventually though.
The beeb aren't interested in anything except squeezing money out of the public.
Feel free to throw rancid fish at me, but I like Two Pints. Can't say I'm overly mortified that the Beeb didn't pick up more Dwarf - at least on Dave we get the chance to take in a refreshing cup of tea (or Cobra beer) half-way through the shows.
I've never understood the logic of the argument 'Why won't they make the show I like when they make this show I don't like?' That's the only way the system can work. I only get serious adult drama if someone else gets Songs of Praise. No channel is required to please everyone with every show, since that's impossible to achieve.
If you like Two Pints, go ahead. The BBC making it doesn't somehow relate to their not commissioning Red Dwarf. And the only way shows like Dwarf, which many people don't like, get on air is by the same logic as Two Pints: 'It won't be for everyone, but we'll make it for those who take to it.'
Don't need to dismiss one show to support another. My dislike of Star Trek doesn't somehow enrich my love of Red Dwarf.
You can't beat a good Sunday evening sing-a-long.
Don't give me that Star Trek Crap. It's too early....
Dave is part of UKTV and UKTV is 50% owned by the BBC ( the other 50% belongs to virgin media) so i would say they are still somehow involved. But they don't care enough to show it on a real BBC channel
