10:57am Tuesday 24th September 2013 in News
MODERN shows such as X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing has been overlooked in favour of classics in a poll to find viewers’ ultimate TV schedule.
Almost 30,000 votes were cast in a Radio Times ballot for its 90th birthday to discover which programmes people would have in their fantasy evening line-up.
The winners in each of six categories were:
- Children's: Blue Peter
- Entertainment: The Morecambe & Wise Show
- Comedy: Only Fools And Horses
- Drama: Doctor Who
- Documentary: Around the World in 80 Days
- News: Sir Trevor McDonald
Of the shows chosen in the poll, only long-running Blue Peter and Doctor Who can be classed as current.
Among the other programmes voted for but failed to win their categories were Grange Hill, Fawlty Towers, Sherlock, Downton Abbey and I’m A Celebrity.
If you were having a night in and planning to sit in front of the box, what shows would make your ultimate telly line-up? Do you think the results of the Radio Times poll show older TV shows are better than today’s offerings? Add your favourites and comments below.
