to think Sunday TV is utter, utter crap?

The BBC seem to think their entire audience is 60 plus with documentaries about hidden heritage, countryfile and the height of entertainment at 9pm, a documentary about a whale.

ITV fares no better with a documentary about the Nile and David Jason's Great escape.

Not a decent film, comedy or drama all night. I just want something entertaining to watch, I do not want to be educated ALL night.

I am watching Da Vinci code as I think it is a fab film.. but normally I would agree, Sunday tv is crap. I try and record something from during the week though to watch on a Sunday.

I can't remember Sunday night tv ever being this bad before. It really is dire. Why can't they put a decent drama on ffs.

So glad I read this thread! Was watching a repeat of Qi and had forgotten that Reading was on! Now settled in for an evening in front if the box - looks like Elbow are up next.

Tbh as one who remembers the days before the VCR (that's how ancient I am) when you watched it when it was broadcast or you didn't watch it at all I am not sympathetic. There's plenty on especially if you have Freeview (let alone satellite which I don't) and it's easy to make sure you have something in the locker ready for Sunday night - which I agree is so much crap.

Or there's the radio.

Or books.

Dragons' Den
Ocean Giants
Page Eight

A reasonable mix I'd've thought.

Decent dramas are very expensive I think

Well I'm looking forward to Page Eight later - plenty of people fork out good money to go and see a David Hare play in the theatre, and not all of them are over sixty. Personally, I'd rather any of the things you listed, OP, than X-Factor, Strictly Come Dancing, and the crap one usually gets on Saturday Nights. And I'm in my mid-thirties.

I agree. Shite on Sunday night.
