Eden is a digital television channel broadcasting in the United Kingdom and Irelandas part of the UKTV network of channels.

The output of Eden is entirely documentaries, mainly taken from the BBC archives, such as Jacob Bronowski's The Ascent of Man.

BBC programmes are edited to fit the time slot: an original broadcast for an hour long programme on the BBC might be as much as 58 minutes long, while the same programme here might be 42 minutes long without the commercials.

The channel was launched on 8 March 2004 as UKTV Documentary. Along with Blighty, it was a replacement for the channel UK Horizons, which closed the day before.

The channel, along with a time-shifted "+1" version, is available on Sky Digital. It is also available (not time-shifted) on Virgin Media and TalkTalk TV. It is not available over the air on Freeview. The +1 services for Eden and Yesterday were closed to make space for Watch and its timeshift on Virgin Media.

On 26 January 2009, UKTV Documentary was rebranded as Eden.
