It might the rose-tinted glasses of my childhood but I thought it was amazing back in the day. I suppose you could criticise it for the fact that its tasks were quite menial. But I don't think it's anywhere near as bad as Splash where the entertaining bits only lasted a couple of seconds, or Ninja Warrior where you watch people run the same course over and over and over again.


In fairness to Ninja Warrior in its home country it apparently all airs in one go, the best part of three hours and I suspect it probably has more elements to the show/format than the Challenge edits of the show would suggest. So its only a one-off event that isn't dragged out over many weeks.

The tasks on Moment of Truth though were fairly menial, or at least they were compared to what had gone before on the likes of You Bet which though it itself spent large chunks of the time on the build-up actually had challenges that were on the whole interesting to watch.

Peter Kay flogging old material as per usual for the sake of a clip show segment, and what was essentially a plug for his show. I know the Car Share night is for a good cause, but jeez...

Her name is Luisa Omielan by the way, and I think she is way too nervous and young to start presenting like this. She's trying but everything else there is failing around her.


She's 35, I wouldn't say she was too young. But according to her Wikipedia page, she's done pretty much no television work.


Well, I meant at this early stage in her career. She should do much more than this, but she either rushed it and said yes or this decision was inspired by her BBC Three comedy special, which quite frankly would look stupid on the part of the BBC, although I don't think it's too bad at first glance, being based on her Fringe show.

I'm intrigued as to how this 4K spin is being produced. Surely they're not flying out to all races full 4K OB units are they? Is the infrastructure in place at the circuits to handle it?

I get the feeling that a lot of it will be upscaled HD presented on the UHD channel.

Anyone any evidence one way or the other?

Well, French and Saunders have got one thing exact. They don't know the lyrics to Shutdown and neither do I. But nobody there will get the joke so it doesn't matter.
