We don't have any baking competitions planned as yet, but any details in future will be available on our website, so keep checking in the coming months. In the meantime, you won't want to miss Lorraine's Fast, Fresh And Easy Food, which premieres on BBC Lifestyle on Tuesday 13 August.

I want to support Roger's request for The Apprentice. Surely an excellent series like this commands more appeal than ten year old repeats of repeats like Who wants to be a millionaire and other programmes you do time and again. Please guys! The BBC Apprentice is widely acknowledged as superior entertainment

BBC

Why were the rolling stones not televised at Glasonbury in South Africa What a dissapointment.

The episodes of Casualty shown on BBC Entertainment on 2013-06-28 and 2013-07-05 are listed in the schedule as Series 24, Episode 25 and Series 24, Episode 26 respectively; however, the "Previously" segment shown at the beginning of the episode on 2013-07-05 showed clips of events that did not appear in the episode on 2013-06-28 (specifically, Charlie Fairhead being operated on, and somebody playing a guitar: the episode on 2013-06-28 ended with Charlie being taken into theatre).

BBC

Dear Terrence,

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

We appreciate your feedback about this recent episode of Casualty. The conclusion of the story surrounding Charlie Fairhead featured in an episode of Holby City, which is no longer shown on BBC Entertainment. The clips at the beginning of the Casualty episode you mention gave a summary of events in that Holby City episode, but we are sorry if this was confusing. We can assure you that you have not missed any episodes of Casualty.

BBC Television has been broadcasting in 16:9 widescreen for about 15 years. Widescreen standard definition over SKY, cable and freeview since late 90's. Why on earth are we in 2013 still getting a 4:3 aspect ratio feed from the BBC? Surely you are able to feed us a widescreen signal. Broadcasters in territories that doesn't support widescreen can simply letterbox it for their market. Why must all of us be dragged down to the lowest common denominator? Are budgets at the BBC so low that they are using antique 4:3 equipement for BBC Worldwide? It is outdated service like this that encourages people to download pirated copies of shows like Downton Abbey, so they can get the full picture!

BBC

Dear Christiaan,

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

We are planning to update all our BBC channels to Widescreen, and as you can understand this takes time. It is our ambition to have all of our BBC channels in the 16:9/Widescreen format before the end of the year. Please note that while the channels will convert to widescreen, some of your favourite hows such as ‘Allo Allo’, will remain in the “old format” known as 4:3, as this is how these shows were originally shot.

Thank you for contacting us.

Best wishes,
