Go on, I'm giving you a TV Channel to produce whatever programming you want. No worries about ratings, opinions, viewer numbers. We all have opinions about the current fayre on terrestrial and digital, so given the opportunity to indulge yourself ...

I'll kick it off by saying my channel would be totally geeky with documentaries on cutting edge discovery, invention and exploration. It would definitely include a series devoted to explaining string theory, as I still can't get my head round the fact that if I was a string, an atom would be the size of the solar system.

Totally arbitary lists like "The 100 Greatest Movies/Albums/Songs/Bands Ever" etc. Sorry, but I like lists. I even buy an issue of a magazine I've never bought before if they've got a list like that in it.

I need a girlfriend.

The best of all British progs, drama and sitcom, and when that runs out after three weeks I'd fill it in with porn.

Tell you what, those list programmes give a lot of comedians a payday for nothing. They'd love your channel.

And our cats would certainly rate Cats TV. They do seem to take an interest in TV felines.

I believe I write LOL for that one, because I did.

I'd run a bid TV type channel, only with all the presenters in the nuddy, and they'd be selling their vital organs.

I'd have 24 hour rolling Bishop and Douch updates.

I've always fancied broadcasting anti-adverts, that is, short ad-like bits which show just how worthless most of the stuff being sold is in the real ads. Funding might be tricky.

Sketch shows and children's cartoons from the 80's and 90's, as those two decades were when those things were at their best.

You know that bit in Flash Gordon where they show Dr Zarkov being drained of his memories and the images of his mind play out on a monitor in breathless montage?

Just that on a loop.
