UKTV looks to inject personality into its factual channel brands, continuing its rebranding strategy with the launch of Eden, formerly UKTV Documentary, and Blighty, formerly UKTV People. With a launch date of early 2009, Eden is being touted as ‘the gateway to the greatest shows on earth,’ with blue chip series like Planet Earth as well more intimate shows like Big Cat Diary. Blighty keeps programming local, with shows that celebrate the uniqueness of contemporary Britain, like Who Do You Think You Are.
