Advantages: good choices of programmes sometimes
Disadvantages: repeats sometimes are boring
I remember when BBC1 was one of the 3 only channels there was to watch, oops I am showing my age, but in those times I found it a very good channel and I have watched it ever since and found it to be exellent.
Now it is one of hundreds of available channels to watch but it is a popular one and it does lots of variety of programmes, although some of them are repeats but I myself do not mind that as long as it is not everyday, but they do tend to repeat alot nowadays.
They do soap operas, Eastenders probably being the most popular, they do documentaries, and they do home programmes which I love to watch during the day, they do some history ones too and alot of the programmes can be informative, which is good, they also do sports when they are say the Olympics or World Cup, that kind of thing, they have a nice cookery programme I love to watch on a Saturday called Saturday Kitchen and it is super.
They have the news programme breakfast show on until 9.15am and then they start the usual morning programmes, which tend to be the same but rotated and not always repeated.
A good channel to watch and it can be found on 1 on freeview and 101 on Sky, they do not have any advertisment breaks on this channel which can be a bonus, but sometimes the programmes can be quite long and a short break inbetween would be good, but only for a couple of minutes in my opinion, just to have small break.
The programme has some nice presenters, on the DIY ones they can be quite humourous which I find myself good as I love to see alot of humour put into a programme, and this channel does that at times but not always enough.
They tend to do the same kind of morning programmes that capture the audience, I myself like these programmes but I know alot of people who find it boring, each to their own but nowadays you can soon find another channel to watch if you do not like one.
I like this channel and it suits my programme choices, and I do not mind a repeat so long as it is not all the time as we now can tape programmes and do not need it.
Good channel to watch.
Summary: good channel overall,
