Repeat Of ‘Bargain Hunt’ Outstrips BBC Two’s ‘Peaky Blinders’ | TV News

Bargain Hunt


The old problem of distinctiveness vs popularity once again raises its ugly head. The outstripping of a Peaky Blinders by a repeat of Bargain Hunt highlights everything wrong in the view of the Government when it comes to the BBC and its need for creative, unique programming, but surely for the BBC to survive it needs regular shows that draw in regular audiences? Apparently not it seems.


Thursdays repeat attracted 1.7 million viewers compared to Peaky Blinders, which drew 1.5 million viewers in its 9pm slot, which drew the attention of the Government due to research conducted on BBC 1 that showed it had become less innovative and risk taking.
