image for Top TV show "The Hour" to return in half hour episodes
Only half an hour until the hour

BBC ratings winner 'The Hour' which starred her from Atonement, him from the Wire, her from Four Wedding and a Funeral, and John Keats will return in half hour episodes in the Autumn.

Mr Repeats on me as well, from the august institution explained:

'We always go for quality, but, unfortunately, quality costs. We don't have advertisers, or football, or Simon Cowell to fall back on like ITV (other Television channels are also available) so we have to make sure our quality output can be easily watched and repeated across all of our entertainment platforms.

'We decided that we would repeat the Hour, but we felt the title, and the actual length of the show put people off. We will show it across a week with half hour slots, that way we can get a similar sized audience to many of the Soaps.

'If it works with The Hour, we also plan to do it too many of our older popular programmes. We at the BBC feel that it is about time that shows such as The House of Elliot, Howard's Way, and Monarch of the Glen were seen by a far bigger, and younger audience'.

Make Ben Macnair's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
