BBC4 comes out fighting with Gracie
This blog has always been a supporter of BBC4 and it was therefore heartning to see its biopic drama Gracie hit good viewing figures on Monday night.
The channel pulled in a record 1.4m viewers to watch Jane Horrocks portray Rochdale's famous daughter and will no doubt bask in the delight of putting one across Jeremy Hunt who has argued that the corporation should devolve itself of its niche channels.
It is not just a flash in the pan either for the previous weeks expose on the private life of Enid Blyton pulled in 1.2m.
