you need to put better songs on the 'Queen' greatest hits because the ones that you put on arent that good.
The songs that you should have chosen from instead are:
Killer Queen
Bohemian Rhapsody
Bicycle Race
Fat Bottomed Girls
We Are the Champions
Somebody to Love
Youre My Best Friend
I Want to Break Free
Radio Gaga
Hammer to Fall
Seven Seas of Rhye
Death on Two Legs
We Will Rock You
The Miracle
Under Pressure
These Are the Days of Our Lives

Hello, I am just writing to ask why you constantly change the line-up so that what one is expecting to come up rarely does? It is extremely frustrating to have something on the tv planner and look forward to something that then is constantly removed for something else. I am referring directly to "My Chemical Romance". The amount of times you have changed the transmission times for this band is really irritating. I set my dvd player to record it and sometimes even work my day around it, only to then find out that the transmission has changed. Today is the last straw. I set my dvd up and grabbed the tv back from my daughter to record My Chemical Romance at 2.30pm today only to find that within the last hour it had been removed and replaced with La Roux. PLEASE can you explain what this constant messing about is in aid of - I am seriously considering not watching your channel any more as I find it too unreliable. Thank you. Cheryl.

You okay hits from an artist every half hour. Today you played hits from the artist Marion. Yet in the last 5mins you played a song from Marion Winans then wet back and played a Marion song. So you need to get it right and play the artist and not add another who doesn't even relate. Doesn't make any amount of sense!

@Cheryl, completely agree. Over the weekend they had a Pixie Lott Greatest Hits programme. But instead of getting the whole PL programme, I got fifteen unbearable minutes of Nelly Furtado, and the Pixie Lott show ended part way through a song. At which point, I simply deleted all of the other listings in my Sky+ box, as it appeared to be a waste of time recording anything on this channel. Two other shows also ended up being something else... useless.

I was going to watch My Chemical Romance today, it said it was on today. So I recorded it, and when I watched it, it was a bunch of pop songs!! I was absolutely infuriated!!! I had waited all week to watch it. I have found this has happened with MANY other programmes. I am extremely annoyed, please stop this problem!

Kiera: Yes, it is always disappointing when scheduled programmes are not shown on a channel.
