two- to three-hour zone

TV Another Guardian article about the BBC, I'm afraid, but this is about an undeniably brilliant idea for filling BBC Two daytime now that the government is forcing us to pay them less money:
"BBC2 controller Janice Hadlow and BBC daytime controller Liam Keelan are understood to be drawing up plans for a new afternoon schedule containing a two- to three-hour zone composed of repeated factual programmes, slanted towards those that have already screened on BBC4."
There's the usual comment from the corp. about not commenting on ongoing speculation (or whatever), but this is the sort of thing PVRs were designed for and hopefully it'd include some of the material from the very early days of BBC Four some of which was very good but hasn't been seen since.
