BBCs repeat broadcast policies

There are a few posts stewing around in my mind (like prunes?) about the BBC’s rerun policies, The Goodies-Monty Python connection, and so on.  I’ve been wanting to run the News in Welsh from I’m Sorry I’ll Read That Again, but I only have an audio recording of that. But, while searching, this came up.

Of course, the programming gods are fickle beings and never seem to run what you want when you want it, which is probably the root of the grumbling. But, one should be thankful it’s not like US Cable-Satellite Stations where they tend to run the same show about 3-4 times a day for every time zone.

In the mean time, I have to bitch that the BBC, whilst whining about never having enough money, has this really bad habit of never releasing programmes on DVD, which also includes blu-ray.  Case in point, the Goodies, which the BBC would rather forget exists, while there are millions of fans out there buying bootlegs and the few collections out there.

For those not in the know, The Pythons and Goodies shared quite a bit of common background, which this show (amazingly happened to have been produced by BBC Scotland) gets into:
