Some time ago I created articles for two BBC-related people of my personal acquaintance. Since then both have been deleted as non-notable. I am past debating that, but I thought it worthy of mention here in case those people interested in creating BBC-related articles might want to take up the cause again if they disagree with that position. To be honest, the main problem in both cases was that I was unable to find sufficient reference material other than on their own web sites (that may now have changed):

Requested improvements[edit]

Red Dwarf Remastered (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)

This article has a bunch of rubbish in it, misinformation, inappropriate pictures, and so on. I don't know enough to put the correct information in, and the Red Dwarf wikiproject appears rather dead, hence my request here. — Timotab Timothy (not Tim dagnabbit!) 18:28, 8 September 2007 (UTC)


List of Only Fools and Horses episodes (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)

Can anyone explain what is up with the 'story arc' section in a few of the episode pages. If there is a serious, noteworthy story arc then it's probably worth a mention but lines like 'During his "war is hell" speech, Grandad mentions his brother, George, who would also be mentioned in "Strained Relations" as being Del's assumed godfather' or 'Del says that he was a little infant when his parents got married' is really not encyclopedic and in my opinion lets the articles down. Are there any objections to removing the unnecessary points? RaseaC (talk) 00:05, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

The Legend of the Lost Keys (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) The Legend of the Lost Keys article which I created could do with more building up. Then it needs re-rated. Sfxprefects (talk) 14:37, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Requested reassessments[edit]

Powers (TV series) (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) Various improvements made, mostly by me based on the advice of the initial assessor, so probably no longer Start-Class. Alzarian16 (talk) 17:19, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

BLITS (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) Subject of stub has since been upgraded to an EBU tech recommendation, with a link to the EBU pdf added to the article. A direct link to the BLITS ident audio file has also been added. The BLITS ident also features in BBC HD's current 'Barker' sequence. It re-occurs every other hour, accompanying the HD testcard, and alternates with Rowan de Pomerai's 'clapper-board' lip-sync test. Please contact Andy Quested (BBC HD Head of Technology) for further information.

BBC (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) I've just been going through the main BBC article, improving it based on feedback from the last reassessment. It has been significantly updated (the last time seemed to be in 2006) and prose has been improved. However, im only a new wikiuser, so dont know whether ive made a difference to raise this article from C class. Thanks Rafmarham (talk) 19:34, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

Other requests[edit]

Template:BBC Radio 2 (edit | [[Talk:Template:BBC Radio 2|talk]] | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) Can someone make a BBC Radio 2 template? Radio 1 has a template so surly Radio 2 should have on also? --TwentiethApril1986 (talk) 01:51, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

I have created this template now. Feel free to add to it. --TwentiethApril1986 (talk) 02:24, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

I have placed this template on all related BBC Radio 2 articles. --TwentiethApril1986 (talk) 03:39, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Red Dwarf (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) The Red Dwarf article has just been requested for a Peer Review. The article has gone through some major changes in the last few months, and it would be fantastic if editor/contributors from the Wikiproject BBC could head over and give some sound opinion and ideas on improvements for the page. If you are interested in joining the peer review discussion please follow the link. Thank you very much for your help and your continued effort to improve Wikipedia and its quality! Wikipedia:Peer review/Red Dwarf --Nreive (talk) 10:44, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Located Orphan maybe yours (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) An orphaned page--Aragon Tower--that I recently found indicates that the BBC1 did a documentary on it called "The Tower". I thought you could, perhaps find a place for it. deepsack (talk) 02:00, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

BBC Television (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) This might belong in another section, but I was wondering if anybody knows what became of the BBC's plans to launch two satellite channels in 1986? There's a Times Article on the subject from 1982, but not much else, and I've Googled this to death without much luck. I'd be interested to know so I could add the information to the relevant articles. Thanks TheRetroGuy (talk) 11:19, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Miranda (TV series) (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) The Miranda article has undergone a few significant changes (by myself) and I was wondering if a new rating for it could be applied? JuneGloom07 (talk) 13:56, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Template:RadioListings (edit | [[Talk:Template:RadioListings|talk]] | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) There is a discussion at WP:External_links/Noticeboard#RadioListings.co.uk to which I'd like to solicit further opinions. Improvement to the template also welcome! Jim Craigie (talk) 09:56, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

I am a new editor Wikipedia:Please do not bite the newcomers May former members of staff become members of this group as subject experts or is that considered a conflict? I think CBBC and CBBC (TV channel) need a tidy up with the CBBCpage being renamed BBC Children's with a clearer explanation to the division BBC Children's (distinct from the former name of CBBC which was Children's BBC) and this page should link both to CBeebies and CBBC as well as outlining digital services. BBC Children's is currently a redirect to a section of Cbeebies. I have also created a page Director of BBC Children's before realising I should be requesting new BBC pages here so someone may want to review this too. Including @Triptothecottage in this thread who is involved in discussion. Thanks. Neneway (talk) 09:45, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
