Why did'nt DSTV bring the kids Extravaganza to Durban with Mr Maker ? He has a huge fan base thoughout the country and worldwide but it's unfair to only bring him to Johannesburg and not be considerate of other children in other provinces, I see in many of Mr Maker episodes he has also been to Cape Town, I posted this question on the DSTV Facebook page but got no response!

BBC

Dear Vandhana,

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

We note your feedback about Mister Maker on CBeebies. You may like to visit the CBeebies website for details about any forthcoming CBeebies events in South Africa. However, as the DStv Kids Extravaganza was an event organised by DStv, and not CBeebies, you may prefer to share your feedback with them via their website - www.dstv.com.

Best wishes,

CBeebies

BBC

Dear Lee,

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

We are pleased to read of your appreciation for Top Gear and as you may be aware there are currently no new series to premiere on our channels. On BBC Entertainment and BBC Knowledge we are giving viewers another opportunity to watch episodes from previous series of Top Gear that they may have missed the first time around or to watch again, however we note your disappointment that when we repeat series they are not always broadcast in sequence.

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to send us your feedback.

Best wishes,

After the phenomenal success of the 50th anniversary special, when will you broadcast Series 9 with Peter Capaldi ? I see you are rerunning series 7 again and I am glad of that but please - give is the new series as soon as you can. I would also appreciate seeing the origins special "An Adventure in Time and Space" so how about it ?

BBC

Dear Philip,

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

There are no immediate plans to air Doctor Who series 8, but we’ll keep you posted. We also note that you would like to see the special one-off drama An Adventure in Space and Time and we will share your interest in this drama with our programming team.

In the meantime, BBC Entertainment has an exciting slate of upcoming programming including brand new series of Strictly Come Dancing and The Graham Norton Show which will premiere on the channel shortly after the UK. We hope comedy fans will also enjoy a brand new show joining BBC Entertainment, Moone Boy, starring Chris O’Dowd.

Dear Sir, I must in the first place commend your team for such an awesome and soul inspiring program on air(The Undercover Boss). I am privileged to watch such a program for the first time at a friend's house. I am by this mail making a humble request to your outfit if you could assist me get a copy on CD and how much will be the cost.

BBC

Dear Paul,

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

We are delighted to read of your appreciation for Undercover Boss. Whilst not all of the programmes which you see on our channels are commercially accessible, you may like to check availability of this series with Kalahari. In addition, for many shows the programme-makers release related merchandise which you may find of interest.

This channel has become one of the worst on DSTV. From the good old comedies that we used to get, we are now subjected to cooking shows (as if there aren't enough of those as it is) to the most boring and pathetic shows like QI and I wouldn't lie to you. Come on BBC you can do better than this. Stop showing continuous repeats and get this current rubbish off.

BBC

Dear Bryan,

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

Turning first to your comments about the inclusion of repeats on BBC Entertainment, repeating popular shows is common for cable channels and it offers viewers another chance to see a much loved show or a first opportunity to see a show they may have missed before. BBC Entertainment is set a minimum fresh hours remit by DSTV which we regularly exceed and when premiere content is not available we carefully choose programming that we believe, overall, will be enjoyed by our viewers.

We note that you are not a fan of QI and Would I Lie To You? however it would be a rare programme that would appeal to all viewers all of the time. We do hope you will enjoy some of the fantastic premiere programmes on BBC Entertainment this month which includes Mr Selfridge series 2, Deal or No Deal series 4, Big School and Death in Paradise series 3. In addition each week we premiere new episodes of Casualty and EastEnders.

We very much appreciate viewers getting in touch with their feedback and we thank you for taking the time and trouble to contact us.

Best wishes,

BBC Entertainment

I am again enquiring regarding the screening of the newest series of Downton Abbey. Please do not refer me to the generic answer you have been providing to date. I have noted that you are now broadcasting repeats of already viewed series - why not the newest one?

BBC

Dear Shannon,

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

While we note you have asked not to be referred to the FAQ regarding Downton Abbey series 4 on our website, the answer given in this FAQ is the latest information we have regarding this drama.

Thank you for contacting us and please be assured that we have noted your interest in this series.

How can I enter Come Dine With Me SA?

BBC

Dear Jane,

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

Come Dine With Me South Africa was a huge hit for BBC Entertainment and we are very proud of the series. There are no plans to produce a further season. We feel the time is right to seek new opportunities for a fresh, innovative local format for audiences to enjoy. We are actively looking at a number of opportunities and we are committed to investing in the very best quality programming for our channels.
