Pet TV

Okay, the BBC is a public service broadcaster, but a dedicated station for pets?  Not about pets, for them.  As the Guardian reports (link requires free registration):

The interactive TV service will consist of a looped series of images and sounds, including clips of snooker balls rolling across the green baize, frisbees flying through the air, cat toys and cartoon characters such as Top Cat.  The service will also offer clips from more traditional TV fare, such as EastEnders, Neighbours, The Muppet Show and Animal Hospital.

A week-long trial of the digital station is advertised as research into the types of TV programmes, sounds and images to which animals respond; the BBC are targeting dogs, cats, birds and even fish.

Though the immediate reaction to this story might be incredulity, it does seem interesting.
