The Huge Renaissance That is BBC Digital

I don't really have that much to say about it, but it's produced some serious quality television. Even if only Smoking Room and Shameless, it'd be worth it. Ideal wasn't bad, and I'd have though Peep Show is from there as well. According to Bex was a bit silly, but quantity is a virtue, especially when the quality isn't quite as bad or as mawkish as other national televisions. Of course a number of these were cross pollinated to terrestrial, but overall, they seem very much engendered by the desire for digital movement. Am I wrong, or is 3 comedy and 4 drama? Whatever the case, I don't quite see the same volume or quality from any of the other channels. And they do draw from an - admittedly small and incestuous - but nicely talented bunch.
