From Wikipedia: It covers a wide range of subject matter, but tending towards more 'highbrow' programmes than the more mainstream and popular BBC One. Like the BBC's other domestic TV and radio channels, it is funded by the television licence, and is therefore commercial-free. It is a comparatively well funded public service network, regularly attaining a much higher audience share than most current public service networks worldwide. - en.wikipedia.org read more about BBC Two on wikipedia (summary by Clipped).

The bits to avoid
The afternoon schedule (The Weakest Link, Flog It!) is lacking the imagination of peak time programmes.
Jules: If the version of your recorder is fitted with both Freeview and analogue tuners, make sure that you do not select the analogue channel which no longer receives BBC2. Also, did you clear the channel list before doing a scan for channels? Is there a BBC2 in the 800's of the channel list? It might be worth doing a complete scan with the aerial unplugged, so that "no channels" are found, then do a scan with the aerial plugged in. This apparently solves the problem of the receiver failing to see certain channels when scanning.
Kevin Watkins: When retuned, some equipment seems to store some of the channels in temporary memory rather than in persistent storage. Do a 'first time installation', 'factory reset' or 'default setting' to ensure all existing channel information is fully cleared out, before retuning. This option may be on a 'Software Update' or 'Service' menu rather than on the tuning menu.
See TV Re-tune for guides on how to retune specific equipment.
Robin: Could you please clarify as to whether you are using a Sky box or a Freeview TV / box? as its your reference to BBC2 via a Sky card as well as mentioning Heathfield that I find confusing as there is no connection between them.
However, no matter what mode you are using "if" the receiver is being coupled into a TV via a scart lead then make sure that both scart connector plugs are firmly seated into the sockets on each device, this done by removing the plug at each end (in turn) and then reinserting it.
