LONDON — Given the furore over "The Great British Bake Off" moving from the BBC to Channel 4, you'd be forgiven for thinking that much of the UK's TV diet consists of cake. "Bake Off" and its sister show, "Bake Off Creme de le Creme," both feature in Business Insider's list of the most popular programmes on British television last year. 2016 was a year when drama was on top form, with shows like the brilliant "Line of Duty" making their case and US imports, including "The Walking Dead" and "Game of Thrones," having record-breaking seasons. We have stripped out sports, like the Olympics, and live events, including the New Year's Eve fireworks, from the list.
