About BBC Four
BBC Four is an alternative to programs on the UK’s more mainstream TV channels. It broadcasts a sophisticated and enriching blend of documentaries on science and art. Additionally, BBC Four ventures into timeless (often black and white), classic drama programs that are themselves fascinating history lessons. If you want to step back in time and see British culture from the eyes of a person living in the 1940s, BBC Four is the place to go. But BBC Four is more than that: It also offers an unusual, daring mix of foreign films and TV series from its Artificial Eye catalog that have included the French thriller Spiral and the Swedish detective series Wallander.
