BBC Three is to be axed as a traditional "linear" TV channel in four months' time. The BBC Trust has today formally approved proposals to move the channel online in March 2016. BBC Trustee Suzanna Taverne said in a statement that he decision had been "a difficult one", but insisted: "The BBC must adapt with its audiences; the evidence is very clear that younger audiences are watching more online and less linear TV." In March 2014 the BBC's director-general Tony Hall announced plans to move the youth-oriented channel online in a bid to cut costs. Earlier this year, the BBC Trust launched a full public consultation into the move, allowing licence fee payers to have their say on the corporation's proposals for the channel. Explaining the Trust's reasons for its final decision, Taverne said: "The plans enable the BBC to deliver more distinctive content online, while bearing down on costs; to address concerns about the impact of moving BBC Three online, we have set new requirements for programmes for younger audiences on BBC One and Two." The move of existing BBC Three programmes to iPlayer will not happen abruptly, the BBC Trust explained today, but will instead take the form of "a brief phased migration online from January 2016 until the end of February 2016". Within 18 months of today's decision, the Trust will conduct a "service review" to ensure that the corporation is meeting objectives for the new online-only BBC Three. BBC Three was launched in 2003 with a target audience of viewers aged between 16 and 34. The channel's biggest hits over the last decade include Gavin & Stacey, Little Britain, The Mighty Boosh, Torchwood and Being Human.

Demis Roussos & Petula Clark - From Souvenirs To Souvenirs lyrics

A lonely room and empty chair
Another day so hard to bear
The things around me that I see remind me of
The past and how it all used to be

From souvenirs to more souvenirs I live
With days gone by when our hearts had all to give
From souvenirs to more souvenirs I live
With dreams you left behind
I'll keep on turning in my mind

There'll never be another you
No one will share the worlds we knew
And now that loneliness has come to take your place
I close my eyes and see your face
