Some programmes to look out for in the coming days:
Heroes, returns to BBC HD Saturday evening with a double-episode at 22.10.
Wallander looked great on BBC HD to my eyes last week and we have the second of three episodes this Sunday at 9pm. And that's followed by the start of the second season of Being Human at 22.30. Also next week on the channel Hustle, Nurse Jackie, and Silent Witness, and repeats of season two of Criminal Justice and the excellent Small Island adaptation. And the second series of Survivors (finally) appears on Tuesday at 9pm (thanks, Afront)
4HD films in the next week include The Simpsons Movie and Hostage on Saturday, Cheaper by the Dozen and Forest Gump on Sunday, Cruel Intentions on Monday and the dazzling Slumdog Millionaire next Wednesday, all showing in full HD.
Those thinking that Virgin not having E4 HD will mean they're starved of the new hit US show Glee in all its glory will be pleased to find it will be repeated on Sundays on 4HD in full high def starting on January 17th at 17.35 with a double episode.
Finally, for those following the BBC HD quality debate, there's a piece on You and Yours on iPlayer on the topic - kicks in around the 14.30 mark and is pretty inconclusive. Personally, I think the BBC HD picture quality has improved lately on VM now and certainly not as dire as is being described by satellite customers. Still not as good as the HD programming on 4HD and Nat Geo, but better than regular BBC1.
Oh, and the HD iPlayer listings have now been refreshed after their disappearance over Christmas. Obviously the person who knows what they're doing has returned from their Christmas break...
