Good day, please advise if the BBC channels are free in South Africa?

BBC

Due to power cuts, we will miss New Tricks tonight, of which there is no repeat, and probably Strictly Come Dancing on Sunday, whose sole repeat may also be affected for us. BBCE never used to be this way. You had repeats, and at varied times. Why does your SA schedule now so blatantly ignore the needs of SA viewers?

BBC

Dear Terrence,

Thank you for your message to BBC Worldwide Channels in South Africa.

We are sorry to hear that power cuts meant that you missed New Tricks on the day you contacted us. As we mentioned in a previous reply to you, there is no set pattern for repeating programmes on BBC Entertainment. We do try to repeat series where possible but due to the volume of content it is not always possible to find open slots in the schedule. As you mention we do provide a repeat of Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday ahead of the premiere on Sunday evenings. There will be another chance to watch series 9 of New Tricks on BBC Entertainment from Monday 5th January.

Thank you for contacting us with your feedback.

Best wishes,

BBC Entertainment

Dear Trish,

Thank you for your message to BBC Worldwide Channels in South Africa.

Series 1 of Getting On starring Jo Brand consists of three episodes and this series was broadcast in full on BBC Entertainment on the following dates: episode 1 on 11th November, episode 2 on 18th November and episode 3 on 25th November.

While further series of Getting On are not due to be shown on BBC Entertainment in the near future we will note your interest in this series.

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to contact us.

Please can you explain why there is no repeat of Casualty as due to the series changing and us not being aware of it our PVR did not record it on Friday. The series recording function does not automatically record new series unless programmed, but I didn't see any notification about a change of series occurring and only realized when we had no episode to watch and investigated. How do we get to see this episode?

BBC

Dear Nicky,

Will "Operation wild" screened in the UK on BBC in August 2014 be screened in South Africa and if so when?

We very much appreciate hearing suggestions from our viewers of programmes they would like to watch on our channels.

I understand that you have to show re-runs as you explained previously but "my word" I think by now we all have seen them more than three times. Why can you not show more dramas and less game show's? I love BBC Entertainment but in the last few months I am only watching the crime drama on Friday nights and Eastenders the rest are not entertaining. I know for a fact that there are better programs/shows in England. Please don't answer me back with all your excuses I have read them all.
