purely a vehicle for the BBC Taffia in Cardiff to justify their
existance.
I can't see it surviving switchoff - as you correctly point out, it
diplaces too many mainstream programmes with poorly contrived Welsh
interest output


as a vicar once said to me, when the Commonwealth Games coverage (featuring
potential Welsh medal winners) was displaced for a welsh language programme
"After all, my parishioners do understand English!"

If you download the PDF file on the following page

http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/en/where/wales.html

and look at Page 4, it shows BOTH BBC2 and BBC2W will be available
in Wales following switchover.

Interesting !

What a waste of bandwidth that will be, for the sake of two or three
hours per night, unless it's going to timeshare with someone else's
bandwidth ?

BBC2 certainly isn't available at present - I assume it will be added
to a mux post switch off?

I'm not convinced that page in the pdf is correct. BBC 2 certainly
isn't available at present.
