                    [post_content] => Sunday 23 April we celebrate St. George – the patron saint of England who, according to legend, courageously fought off a ferocious dragon to save a city from the beast’s hungry demands.

Here are few of our favourite real and fictional champions who have kept us safe from evil and danger over the course of our history.

Boudicca

A ferocious warrior queen, protector of the people and fighter for freedom, Boudicca was a queen of the Celts who bravely led an uprising against the Roman Empire. Throughout history she has served as a heroine and role model for strong women, most notably Queen Elizabeth I who was said to have drawn inspiration from the legend of Boudicca for her own style of ruling the nation. Her impact is still present in the 21st century with a statue of the first heroine standing proudly outside the Houses of Parliament reminding us of her lasting legacy.

Robin Hood

Stealing from the rich to give to the poor – a common man who bravely fought against injustice during early English feudal society, Robin Hood is one of the most archetypal heroes in English historical fiction. A classic champion of the people, Robin continues to steal the hearts and minds of fair maidens and true gentlemen in multiple film and TV adaptations, including Disney’s loveable fox character in Robin Hood (1973), spoof version Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993), and not forgetting the classic The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) starring Errol Flynn, to name but a few.

Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes A fictional character committed to putting universal wrongs right, Sherlock’s popularity as a literary, TV and film hero is due to his uncontested authority as a detective who uses his wits to defeat evil.  But it is his moody and contradictory personality that makes him appealing as a timeless English hero, showing us that you don’t need an extravagant superpower to save the world. All you need is an inquisitive mind, drive for justice and a knack for problem-solving (pipe optional). Some of Sherlock’s most notable appearances in recent popular culture has included BBC’s TV series Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, and the film Sherlock Holmes (2009) with Robert Downey Jr. playing the lead character.

Mary Poppins

Many wouldn’t think of Ms Poppins as your typical heroine, but who else can change the world with a song? Since her first appearance on our film screens in 1964, portrayed by Julie Andrews, Mary Poppins has stolen the hearts of adults and children alike. Her calm but stern demeanour makes Mary a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious heroine worthy of being included in this list. We can’t wait for the next chapter in her story, with the enigmatic Emily Blunt starring in Mary Poppins Returns (2018).

James Bond

“The things I do for England.” - James Bond, You Only Live Twice (1967) An international playboy and Martini-loving modern superhero, James Bond has been rescuing the world from evil since Ian Fleming’s first novel Casino Royale was published in 1953. Bond’s appeal as one of our most loveable heroes is not just about his incredible drive in being able to fight off the bad guys, but also about his cheeky charm and English-gentleman behaviour even in the trickiest of situations. A regular character on our screens, there are a total of 26 Bond films produced to date with a combined gross worth of over $7billion – the fourth highest grossing film series, behind Star Wars, Harry Potter and the Marvel franchise.

Hermione Granger

Hermione Grainger Without Hermione Granger’s incredible thirst for knowledge and unrivalled resilience, it is unlikely Harry Potter would have succeeded in his gradual defeat of He Who Must Not Be Named. Hermione is a real modern-day heroine – strong, smart, no-nonsense yet sensitive, her story in the books and films is an inspiration to many across the world, showing us that we can achieve great things by staying strong and fighting for what we believe in.

So ahead of this year’s Mother’s Day we asked our Twitter audience to vote for their favourite TV mum. They will never beat the real thing, but judging by the results there are some real contenders out there. So here is the shortlist to honour the most loving, caring and downright hilarious mums on TV. Marge Simpson - The Simpsons via GIPHY All hail blue-haired Marge Simpson - the glue that holds together one of America’s best-loved families. She effortlessly keeps her wayward son Bart in check, keeps Homer out of trouble, supports Lisa’s quest to make the world a better place and puts up with Maggie’s baby noises.   Barbara Royle - The Royle Family Barbara Royle is a formidable woman, and despite her northern roots, she represents many women up and down the country.  She’s the family breadwinner and sympathetic parent, never failing to stick up for her youngest son, Anthony.   Lorelai Gilmore - Gilmore Girls via GIPHY Including Lorelai Gilmore on this list was a no-brainer; she has filled Rory’s life with music, laughter and of course, coffee. She may have had her rough times, but what mum hasn’t?Lorelai’s wit, humour and unique way with words, makes her one of the best TV mums around.   Peggy Mitchell - Eastenders Legendary East End character and feisty former landlady, Peggy Mitchell was always a dedicated mum to the – often troublesome – Mitchell brothers. In one of her infamous ‘leaving the square moments’, we saw an emotional Peggy reminding her boys that they are ‘her world’. That is true motherly love right there.   Marie Barone from Everybody Loves Raymond via GIPHY Marie Barone is the queen of mums. She’s hilariously overbearing, never short of an insult and like many mums who have sons, she’s wonderfully overprotective. And although she may act like a tough nut, we all know she’s a softie deep down. As the matriarch of an Italian-American family, she is both an adoring mother and overbearing mother-in-law. Did your favourite make the shortlist? If not, Tweet us your number one TV mum at @at800tv. If you’ve noticed new Freeview interference, it might be due to 4G. If following your mother’s advice doesn’t seem to resolve it, let us know – we’re happy to help!     [post_title] => TV’s most loved Mums [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => tvs-loved-mums [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2017-03-20 09:05:02 [post_modified_gmt] => 2017-03-20 09:05:02 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://at800.tv/?post_type=updates&p=45904 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => updates [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [2] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 45188 [post_author] => 51 [post_date] => 2017-02-20 09:51:26 [post_date_gmt] => 2017-02-20 09:51:26 [post_content] => There are numerous reasons why you may experience TV reception problems, including atmospheric pressure, faulty aerials and cabling, buildings, or trees that could block the signal or transmitter work or faults.

To get in the romantic spirit, we’ve put together some of the cheesiest and most swoon worthy moments from the small screen. Billy’s proposal to Little Mo, EastEnders, 2002 Love comes in all shapes, sizes and … savoury dishes. In an episode of the BBC’s EastEnders, Billy proved what a charmer he was by proposing to Little Mo with a favourite childhood pasta. Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a proposal using alphabet spaghetti!   Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding, 2011 via GIPHY We couldn’t write a blog about TV’s most romantic moments and not include a royal wedding! The nation came to a standstill in 2011 to watch Prince William and Kate Middleton get married. A truly romantic moment was the newlyweds sharing a kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.   Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice, 1995 via GIPHY It’s not necessarily romantic, but it’s certainly swoon worthy. The moment Mr Darcy emerges from a lake is hard to erase from the memory. Romance came later in the series after Darcy finally confesses his love for Elizabeth Bennett and the pair get married.   Matthew Crawley and Lady Mary Grantham proposal, Downton Abbey via GIPHY After two seasons of ‘will they or won’t they’, Matthew Crawley and Lady Mary Grantham finally declare their love for each other. In a heart-fluttering moment the two end up alone surrounded by falling snow, and Matthew gets down on one knee to propose.   Tim and Dawn finally kiss, The Office Christmas Special, 2003 via GIPHY The Office is well known for it’s mockumentary-style comedy, but the 2003 Christmas special made hearts melt as we saw Tim’s efforts eventually win Dawn over. Just as you think she is about to leave the party with her new boyfriend, Dawn returns and the two finally kiss.   If you’ve noticed new disruption to your Freeview it could be due to 4G rather than cupid’s arrow hitting your cables, give us a call - we're here to help!

With yuletide specials from Downton Abbey to comedy gold from The Royle Family and, of course, the nation’s best loved soaps! Whether you’re mad about Christmas or think it is all bah-humbug, British Christmas telly has something for everyone - here are our top picks from over the years. Father Ted – A Christmassy Ted Channel 4 – Special - 1994 Since its first broadcast in 1994, A Christmassy Ted has become a key part of the festive TV landscape and it’s hard to imagine a year without it. Laughs come when Ted, Dougal and six other priests get lost in a lingerie department during a Christmas shopping trip. via GIPHY   Only Fools and Horses – Christmas Crackers BBC - Series 1 - 1981 Only Fools and Horses is just as much of a Christmas tradition as mince pies, Christmas crackers and Boxing Day sales. The episode follows the Trotter family during their ‘low-key’ Christmas Day, as Grandad ruins the Christmas dinner and Del and Roy attempt to meet women at the Monte Carlo Club. via GIPHY   The Royle Family – Christmas Special BBC - 1999 Christmas with the Royles is ‘go-to’ festive viewing, but it’s the 1999 special that takes the crown as the most memorable. The excitement comes at the end of the episode, when heavily pregnant Denise goes into labour - with only Jim around to help.   Wallace and Gromit – A Matter of Loaf or Death The bumbling cheese-lover and his four-legged companion returned in 2008 for a Christmas special guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Wallace and Gromit convert their home into a bakery with a windmill and find themselves caught up in a murder mystery. via GIPHY   Coronation Street – Hilda leaves the show ITV - 1987 Christmas in soap land always promises to be dramatic, and is often far from happy. Hilda Ogden, one of Coronation Street’s most iconic characters, left the soap in style during this emotional Christmas episode. Weatherfield residents said their final goodbyes as Hilda left the famous street singing ‘Wish Me Luck As You Wave Me Goodbye’.   Downton Abbey Christmas Special ITV - 2015 This episode delivered a heartfelt and tear jerking finale, as Lady Edith tied the knot with Bertie Pelham and resolved her long-time feud with Lady Mary. Bates and Anna welcomed a healthy baby boy and Lord Grantham renewed his vows to Cora. If you plan on watching the episode again, make sure you have a box of tissues handy. via GIPHY   Make sure you don’t miss any of this year’s Christmas specials - if you notice any new interference to Freeview, TV received through an aerial, we are here to help.

The service was aired at 3pm on November 2 1936 but it took a few decades for television to become widely available across all parts of the UK. What’s been most popular programmes in that time? The Press Association has compiled a list of the top 20 most watched. The classic sitcom Only Fools And Horses topped the chart with just over 24 million people tuning in for the episode broadcast on December 29 1996, in which David Jason's Del Boy finally got rich after auctioning an antique watch. It is the biggest audience ever recorded for a single transmission of a TV programme in the UK. But the show is no fool when it comes to pulling in the viewers, Only Fools And Horses appears in the top 20 four times, along with favourites such as Morecambe And Wise, Coronation Street and the Royal Variety Performance. The oldest programme to appear in the chart is an edition of the Royal Variety Performance transmitted by ITV on November 10 1963, which featured a performance by The Beatles. The ‘Who shot JR?’ episode of the US drama Dallas was also a huge hit with the British TV audience just missing a spot in the top five. The chart also boasts some surprising entries, such as an episode of The Benny Hill Show from 1979 and an edition of the Norwich-based quiz show Sale Of The Century from 1977 hosted by Nicholas Parsons. Here’s the full list. And to make sure you don’t miss out on any record breaking TV – if you notice new Freeview interference please contact us on 0808 13 13 800.

Here are few of our favourite real and fictional champions who have kept us safe from evil and danger over the course of our history.

Boudicca

A ferocious warrior queen, protector of the people and fighter for freedom, Boudicca was a queen of the Celts who bravely led an uprising against the Roman Empire. Throughout history she has served as a heroine and role model for strong women, most notably Queen Elizabeth I who was said to have drawn inspiration from the legend of Boudicca for her own style of ruling the nation. Her impact is still present in the 21st century with a statue of the first heroine standing proudly outside the Houses of Parliament reminding us of her lasting legacy.

Robin Hood

Stealing from the rich to give to the poor – a common man who bravely fought against injustice during early English feudal society, Robin Hood is one of the most archetypal heroes in English historical fiction. A classic champion of the people, Robin continues to steal the hearts and minds of fair maidens and true gentlemen in multiple film and TV adaptations, including Disney’s loveable fox character in Robin Hood (1973), spoof version Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993), and not forgetting the classic The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) starring Errol Flynn, to name but a few.

Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes A fictional character committed to putting universal wrongs right, Sherlock’s popularity as a literary, TV and film hero is due to his uncontested authority as a detective who uses his wits to defeat evil.  But it is his moody and contradictory personality that makes him appealing as a timeless English hero, showing us that you don’t need an extravagant superpower to save the world. All you need is an inquisitive mind, drive for justice and a knack for problem-solving (pipe optional). Some of Sherlock’s most notable appearances in recent popular culture has included BBC’s TV series Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, and the film Sherlock Holmes (2009) with Robert Downey Jr. playing the lead character.

Mary Poppins

Many wouldn’t think of Ms Poppins as your typical heroine, but who else can change the world with a song? Since her first appearance on our film screens in 1964, portrayed by Julie Andrews, Mary Poppins has stolen the hearts of adults and children alike. Her calm but stern demeanour makes Mary a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious heroine worthy of being included in this list. We can’t wait for the next chapter in her story, with the enigmatic Emily Blunt starring in Mary Poppins Returns (2018).

James Bond

“The things I do for England.” - James Bond, You Only Live Twice (1967) An international playboy and Martini-loving modern superhero, James Bond has been rescuing the world from evil since Ian Fleming’s first novel Casino Royale was published in 1953. Bond’s appeal as one of our most loveable heroes is not just about his incredible drive in being able to fight off the bad guys, but also about his cheeky charm and English-gentleman behaviour even in the trickiest of situations. A regular character on our screens, there are a total of 26 Bond films produced to date with a combined gross worth of over $7billion – the fourth highest grossing film series, behind Star Wars, Harry Potter and the Marvel franchise.

Hermione Granger

Hermione Grainger Without Hermione Granger’s incredible thirst for knowledge and unrivalled resilience, it is unlikely Harry Potter would have succeeded in his gradual defeat of He Who Must Not Be Named. Hermione is a real modern-day heroine – strong, smart, no-nonsense yet sensitive, her story in the books and films is an inspiration to many across the world, showing us that we can achieve great things by staying strong and fighting for what we believe in.
