Sirs, I have been enjoying the daily hospital drama House MD. However, there is one puzzling problem. Why are all the scenes lit as though they were filmed on a foggy day in London Town? The internal and external scenes all seem to suffer from this. Particularly upsetting for me because I worked in a hospital for some time and I can tell you from my experience any hospital like that would be closed down in 2 hours. Is this once again the 'arty' people in the film industry deciding that common sense is unnecessary? The same people who imagine almost every scene should be accompanied by the noise of 10,000 dustbins banging together and the noise of metallic surfaces being scraped together? Who gives them the right and permission to ruin these otherwise splendid programmes
Regards M.Cutlan

Malcolm Cutlan: This is not Pick's website and no one here has any involvement in production of programs for any channel. Try contacting the broadcaster via their own website or search for the name of the production company which is normally shown in the credits at the end of the program.

Tonight the picture was very blocky and pixelated so retuned the tv with auto scan. After doing scan the station has disappeared totally, this has happened to other stations as well and I wondered if it was anything to do with work at emley moor mast.

Kenneth Hanks:

You should not have retuned! All you have achieved is loosing some channels you already had. Retuning will never bring back missing channels. There is no planned engineering work listed by Arqiva for Emley Moor this week.

As you have not given a full post code we cannot check what the receptions conditions are at your location.

I have been having problems with Pick TV breaking up and dropping out, as well as other channels on tx channel 43 (COM5) Hannington.
I retuned manually tx ch 43 com 5 and now the whole lot (ch 43) has gone awol.
I can still receive Pick tv via Christal Palace through the back of my antenna but that is very poor.
Any suggestions where tx ch 43 has gone please?
Regards
Juliet

Since I moved to Dawlish, Devon in November I can't get Pick TV with Monley Life. Does UK Free TV have this series.

UKfree,tv is not a broadcaster so it does not 'have' any programmes.The local transmitter may or may not broadcast the Pick TV services but as you have not given a full post code we cannot look it up.

The Dawlish Freeview Light Transmitter does not appear to provide any channels other than the 3 PSB multiplexes.
