Somewhere in England (possibly?)!
TBH, that is a programme that I would not even want to watch in SD :eek: - but each one to his own!

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

I don't think Graham Norton is on camera , just a microphone.

Is it really around again though ?

I believe they are testing 4K this year. From the tech specs:

MPEG4/H.264 422 198.6048 Mbps

Poor showing in terms of 5.1 surround sound tonight on the channels I can receive that are showing it!

BBC Four HD is stereo only, along with France 4, and ERT HD (all full HD 1080i). Then stereo only on La 2 (Spain) in SD and Rai 4 (I don't have a Tivu card so I can't check Rai 4 HD).

One HD (ARD) is the only one broadcasting the full 5.1 soundtrack. (HD 720p)

The feed broadcasts at a staggering 40mbps bitrate and two MPEG2 2.0 stereo audio channels plus the s302m coded multitrack 7.1 surround track which I cannot decode on any of my players on my PC.
The picture quality of course is breathtaking!

Surprisingly there has never seemed to be any decoder for Dolby E created anywhere. It would be good if it could be transcoded to AC3/E-AC3.
