  • I would enjoy your imported programs so much more if the closed captions were larger. BBC News has captions that are large and usually accurate rather than weird and hilarious. So many of the NATURE programs have deafeningly loud music which makes it hard to enjoy the gorgeous scenery and narration. Nature itself has the sounds of wildlife and NO amplified orchestras concealed in the woods and mountains!
