BBC America

BBC America is an American basic cable network, jointly owned by BBC Studios and AMC Networks. The channel airs sci-fi and action series and films, as well as selected programs from the BBC Unlike the BBC's domestic channels in the United Kingdom, BBC America does not receive funding from the British licence fee, as the BBC cannot fund any of its channels that are available outside the United Kingdom. BBC America operates as a commercial-supported channel and accepts traditional advertising, it is funded by television subscription fees. As of September 2018, BBC America is available to about 80.9 million television households in the United States. BBC America was launched on March 29, 1998, presenting a mixture of comedy and lifestyle programs from BBC Television and other British television broadcasters including ITV and Channel 4. In the channel's early days, it focused on repeats of popular lifestyle shows such as Changing Rooms and Ground Force. BBC America's head of television programming stated that the channel needed to establish a niche, since non-British viewers found the lifestyle shows appealing.

Most of the newer programs appeared as part of BBC America's evening schedule. The network removed the British soap opera EastEnders from its schedule in 2003 due to low ratings. After CEO Paul Lee was appointed president of ABC Family in 2009, the network appointed Bill Hilary from Comedy Central to serve as its chief executive officer. Hilary appointed Kathryn Mitchell to the new position of general manager. Under Hilary's tenure, BBC America was restructured; the channel was led by Garth Ancier, who served as the president of BBC Worldwide Americas from February 2007 until 2010, when he was succeeded by former MTV Networks executive Herb Scannell. Meanwhile, Perry Simon serves as general manager. In 2014, AMC Networks acquired a 49.9% equity stake in BBC America for $200 million, replaced Discovery Communications as its management partner. As part of the deal, AMC Networks took on the responsibility of negotiating U. S. broadcast and advertising sales for the BBC World News channel. AMC Networks CEO Josh Sapan stated that the deal gave his company "a powerful collection of networks that are among the most critically acclaimed, with distinct dramas and other potent content that creates a deep connection with viewers", while BBC Worldwide CEO Tim Davie considered it "an opportunity to grow the creative quality and ambition from an high base."AMC Networks is a partner in BritBox, an over-the-top subscription service focused on British television, operated by BBC Studios and ITV plc.

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency Doctor Who The Graham Norton Show Monty Python's Flying Circus Star Trek Star Trek: The Next Generation Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Star Trek: VoyagerSome of the programs on the channel are edited either for adult content or to allow for commercials. Comedy shows are run in specially formatted 40-minute blocks and a few first-run drama programs are broadcast in a longer block that allows them to run to their original broadcast length. Additional series that have been broadcast may periodically return to the schedule as part of the network's rotation of daytime programming. In the mid-2000s, BBC America produced a few of its own shows along with some joint productions, including Sharpe's Challenge, part of the Sharpe series of made-for-television movies and co-produced with ITV; the first original series produced by the channel was Copper, which premiered in the summer of 2012. BBC America has branched into co-producing British series, including Robin Hood, The Musketeers, Killing Eve, from its fourth series, the revival of Doctor Who.

They co-produce the Canadian series Orphan Black. BBC America used to broadcast BBC World News each Monday through Friday morning from 6:00 to 8:00 am Eastern and Pacific Time. All news programs now air on the BBC World News channel distributed by AMC Networks in the United States; the weekday morning simulcast used to include BBC World News bulletins, World Business Report, Sport Today, Asia Today, a one-hour bulletin called World News Today. Most of these were removed from the schedule without any announcement on April 6, 2009; the weekend morning simulcast was abruptly dropped on April 4, 2009.

New Norfolk

New Norfolk is a town on the Derwent River, in the south-east of Tasmania, Australia. At the 2011 census, New Norfolk had a population of 5,543. Situated 32 kilometres north-west of Hobart on the Lyell Highway, New Norfolk is a modern Australian regional centre which retains evidence of its pioneer heritage. Two examples of this heritage are Tasmania's oldest Anglican church, St. Matthews and one of Australia's oldest hotels, The Bush Inn, trading continuously in the same building since issue of the first licence on 29 September 1825. Many private homes from the 1808 to the early 1820s have survived, such as Glen Derwent, Stanton and Woodbridge. 163 of the pioneers who settled around the town were from the 554 folk resettled when the first Norfolk Island settlement was closed, most arriving during the period between 29 November 1807 and 2 October 1808. These Norfolk Islanders were farming families, who were offered land grants in Tasmania as compensation for their relocation; the climate was colder than sub-tropical Norfolk Island, which proved a challenge for the hardy pioneers during the first few years, but the district became self-supporting.

In 1825 the original name of the town, Elizabeth Town, was changed to New Norfolk in honour of their former home. Many founding folk were "First Fleeters", transferred from Sydney to Norfolk Island when it was settled just a few weeks after Sydney. Ten First Fleeters are buried in the Methodist Chapel at New Norfolk. Notable is Betty King, née Elizabeth Thackery, a first fleet convict girl who married at New Norfolk on 28 January 1810; the headstone on Betty's well-tended grave reads, "The first white woman to set foot in Australia" from the First Fleet at Sydney Cove. She is believed to be the last surviving First Fleeter, male or female, when she died at 89 years of age on 7 August 1856, her husband was Marine Private Samuel King of the First Marine Regiment, another First Fleeter who arrived aboard the warship "Sirius". Sam King was the last male "First Fleeter" to survive until 21 October 1849. Nine other First Fleeters were Ellen Guy, James Bryan Cullen, William Dempsey, William Edmunds, William Foyle, Abraham Hand, Stephen Martin, John Ruglass, Edward Westlake.

The pioneers were successful farmers of the rich land around the town. Cattle and sheep were predominant, with some cropping as land was cleared. Hop plants were introduced in 1846, became an important crop. A number of hop drying kilns or oast houses remain in the area including those at Glen Derwent and Valleyfield; the first road connecting the town to Hobart was built in 1818. On 19 April 1827, Governor George Arthur issued an order to create the Willow Court infirmary known as Lachlan Park and most the Royal Derwent Hospital, as an asylum to accept sick and invalid convicts from Hobart and outstations. Willow Court is now a large antiques centre; the New Norfolk Post Office opened on 1 June 1832. For some years after 1848, New Norfolk was the place of exile of the Irish nationalist leader Terence MacManus, his cottage "Kilburn Grange" still stands. He was joined by his fellow Irish rebel, William Smith O'Brien, who lived at Elwin's Hotel. In 1887, the railway, now preserved as the Derwent Valley Railway, was built.

In 1888, Australia's first telephone trunk call was connected from Hobart to the Bush Inn Hotel in New Norfolk. During the 1940s, a newsprint mill was established at nearby Boyer, boosting industry in the local area. New Norfolk is located on the Lyell Highway the main east-west highway in the southern half of the state, running from Hobart to Strahan on the west coast, it is in fact the only major east-west road in the southern half of Tasmania. A rail link was opened in 1887 but was closed in 1995 when floods and declining usage made repairs uneconomic; the line has been used for tourist trips by the Derwent Valley Railway but this has not been possible since 2005 due to lack of support for track maintenance. New Norfolk is 55 kilometres from Hobart International Airport. New Norfolk is a central location for tourism in the upper Derwent Valley and near the tourist attractions of Mount Field, Lake Pedder, Gordon Dam hydroelectric site, the South West Wilderness; the Tourist Information Centre staffed by volunteers is located in Circle Street next to the Council Chambers at the top end of High Street.

In 2013 Martin Cash Pizza was voted best pizza maker in Tasmania. Many of the historical farm house mansions, such as Glen Derwent and Tynwald, operate as bed and breakfast accommodation, tea rooms and wedding venues; the 1825 Heritage-listed Woodbridge on the Derwent, on the river next to the bridge, operates as a small luxury hotel, is presently one of more than 10 5-star hotels in Tasmania, although the building is located only 6 metres from a major highway carrying log trucks 24 hours a day. It draws a clientele from all over the world, it has a interesting history. Built by hand by convicts for Captain Roadknight, the first Constable of the Elizabeth Town, it was owned by William Sharland, assistant surveyor of Tasmania, his descendants. William Sharland constructed the wooden bridge across the Derwent next to Woodbridge - this was the first bridge across the Derwent, the original Tollhouse still stands today. By the 1950s, Woodbridge was derelict, was converted into 7 flats. Again, by 2003, it was again derelict, It was restored between 2003 and 2005.

The restoration won the 2005 Tasmanian Restoration of the Year Award, the 2006 Australian Restoration of the Year Award The building is unique in that it was built in the prevailing
